Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A pleasant and innocuous diversion for kids, but adults may have trouble sitting through the movie's predictable plotlines and schmaltz.
Director John Schultz's movie is as lame and predictable as you'd imagine, and it's chock full of orphanage cliches.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is a surprising amount of abuse and cruelty by adults in this movie. Bittleman lies, cheats, calls Ox an idiot, and forces the children to sell candy outdoors late at night. He burns Murph's only photo of his mother. Some kids may be upset by the orphanage and by Tracey's estrangement from his father. Make sure kids know that they must stay away from power lines and lightning. And make sure that kids know that room service is not free!
