Typical kids movie

"Tonight's selection was Recipe for Disaster. John Larroqutte and Leslie Ann Warren play parents who open up a new resturant in hopes of making it big, along with their 3 kids. Low and behold, just next door, there is an established resturant, and the owners are not in the least excited to see compeition. Let the hyjix happen, in this somewhat fun kids movie. Throughout the film the parents go through oodles of problems, including the resturant license being lost, and having to race through town in order to get a new one, and the resturant open in time. Meanwhile, the kids are back at the resturant, trying to make a go of the grand opening, while the nosey resturantures next door are trying their best to have the place closed!
A fun family film, and something you are not ashamed to show the kids. I find this film to appeal to age groups 9-12, or there abouts. The script is not that complicated, acting is ok, for something of this calibur, therefore, for something to just sit down and have a good time with, I would recommend this movie!"
A Tasty Family Comedy

"It's "Home Alone" crossed with "Spy Kids" but at a restaurant. I had marvelous time watching this fast-paced comedy with my grandchildren. More funny twists than a pretzel.
