After a Christmas Eve blizzard shuts down the airport, stranded youths create holiday pandemonium for an uptight airport official (Lewis Black) and his assistant (Wilmer Valderrama).
" A clumsily made but disarming enough movie about the joys of getting away with everything. "
" A film that's funny and entertaining for kids and adults and does not involve moronic warring neighbors. "
" If you really must find something to distract your children from Christmas shopping and material yearning, this one gets top recommendation for happily occupying 90 minutes at the mall. "
" Not for the faint of heart, the movie is unsettling and startlingly true to life. "
" A gently toned but ultimately trifling caper. "
" A lot of crotches get abused in the kiddie comedy Unaccompanied Minors. And as a viewer, I felt a lot like a crotch. "
" A noisy, not particularly charming collection of skits and skirmishes. "
" Filmmaker Paul Feig has proven his creativity directing The Office and Freaks and Geeks (which he created). With Unaccompanied Minors, he piles on one unfunny gag after another, leaving little room for character development. "
" Irresponsible content notwithstanding, it's the low standard of filmmaking that really defies belief. "
" It's a holiday farce in a minor key, suitable for the not-ready-for-PG-13 crowd, too boring for anybody else. "
" Most Saturday morning cartoons are more realistic, and actually funnier. "
" Nothing more than Home Alone in an airport. "
" There's some amusing mischief as the underage passengers outsmart the grownups, but the picture also features mean-spirited stereotypes that kill the festive mood. Talk about holiday blahs. "
" Though [director] Feig has said he was aiming for the spirit of films by John Landis (Animal House), Unaccompanied Minors more closely resembles the lesser movies of director-producer John Hughes. "
" Unaccompanied Minors is a Christmas headache looking for an audience. "
" Unaccompanied Minors may not be the worst holiday comedy ever made, but frankly I can't think of something from that genre that sinks lower than this frighteningly bad movie. "
" Why bother suffering through 90 minutes of bad company for a few moments of holiday cheer? Especially when you can still stay home alone and watch A Charlie Brown Christmas somewhere on TV. "
