I disagree, my kids hated the movie! It has to be one of the worst movies out there. It wasn't even funny. I couldn't wait for it to end. It ended up in the garbage, (this was before we learned of swap a dvd.

This is a typical "Feature Films for Families" type show. The story-line itself is a kinda cute idea... but it is on the whole completely unbelievable.

The kids are portrayed as "smarter than the parents" (which annoys the tar out of me... even though sometimes kids are! :) ) And the "solution" wasn't very believable. The plot moves in a random way sometimes.

It will entertain your kids... and that's about it. :)

Elisha Cuthbert's Parents Are Getting A Divorce
C. Chow | Leesburg VA | 11/03/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The plot: This film has nothing to do with a house or who gets it. Here a family of six, experiences a separation but in the end the parents get back together. Not too complex. This family is so goodie goodie they make the Bradys look like the Bundys. The parents don't even fight, why the Separation?

The four kids are so good looking it's ridiculous. Elisha Cuthbert is the oldest daughter, Ricky Mabe (Elisha's boyfriend in `Believe') is the older brother, and the two younger sisters are played by Emma and Sally Isherwood. What eugenics lab did the casters find these Aryan super children in?

George Takei also appears as a construction worker who baby sits the kids. His character comes across like Michael Jackson at a Boy Scout camping trip.

The funniest thing about `Who Gets The House' is how the filmmakers vainly try to cover up how they're in Canada. They refer to Minneapolis, yet we see no footage of Minneapolis. The actors can't hide their Canadian accents and the credits look like the employee roster at Euro Disney.

As far as Elisha Cuthbert movies go this one is pretty good. At least the production quality is OK. Unlike most of Elisha's B Canadian movies, this one doesn't look like it was shot with a cam quarter. A surprising change.

Elisha is 16 here and really hot, just before she started `24'. She gets second billing and just to warn you she's not in every scene.
Nice, heartwarming drama

"This movie is okay. It's set in Minnesota and it's about four kids who try to get their parents back together after their parents divorce. There's Emily, a pretty 16-year-old who is also very smart and talented, Brian who is a 13-year-old young man who is a genius, Heidi who is eleven and funny and intelligent, and little Amy who is cute and sweet. All the kids are smart and think they have what it takes to get their funny mother and serious dad back together. It's a very wholesome, family-friendy movie. I enjoyed watching it. It's very sweet. I liked the part where the kids are at the mall and riding bumper cars and winning prizes and having fun and where the dad brings home Chinise food and they eat it with dark Pespi pop and they stick the little straws in the cups. The food looked so good. And I love that the family got back together at the end. I love how the kids made their parents realized that they still loved each other. That they just didn't communicate very well anymore. It was a cute movie."
