Catch That Kid
Source: Catholic News Service
Cleverly conceived but morally misguided kiddie caper about a 12-year-old girl (Kristen Stewart) and her two best friends, rival suitors (Max Thieriot and Corbin Bleu) who decide to break into a high-security bank in order to steal enough money to pay for her dad's costly, life-saving surgery. Despite a smart script and a fresh-faced cast that gives the flick's shopworn heist plot a youthful twist, director Bart Freundlich uses an end-justifies-the-means attitude to rationalize his improbable premise, which, though ultimately discredited, makes it difficult to wholeheartedly applaud this otherwise entertaining movie. An ambiguous attitude toward larceny, minimal mildly-crude humor and some action violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
