Sometimes you need a little help getting into the holiday spirit - some Christmas carols, eggnog and a classic holiday flick usually do the trick. Is Unaccompanied Minors the movie to check out this season? Find out with Kidzworld's review!

Unaccompanied Minors - Away From Home Alone

When a snow storm halts all flights in and out of a Midwestern airport on Christmas Eve, dozens of kids flying alone are rounded up and exiled to a room in the basement so they can be kept track of. Five of those kids decide they're going to take full advantage of being by themselves and escape the confines of the room for the wide-open spaces of the airport. Soon, Spencer, Grace, Donna, Charlie and Beef have to ban together if they're going to elude airport security and get back to the rest of the unaccompanied minors (especially Spencer's little sister!) who have been moved to rooms at a luxurious chalet.

Unaccompanied Minors - Round 'Em Up!

While the clever airport staff (headed by Wilmer Valderrama and his nasty boss) tries to track down the truant teens, the kids manage to always stay just one step ahead of them. They hide out in the unclaimed baggage room, discovering cool treasures, they go for massages, rack up cafeteria bills and even go in search of a Christmas tree. Their crazy antics make for some laughs, but not as many as you might think.

Unaccompanied Minors - Christmas Crimes

The biggest problem with Unaccompanied Minors isn't the mediocre acting or even the silly gags - it's the over-used, badly recycled storyline. We've seen this kind of holiday flick time and time again and Unaccompanied Minors doesn't do enough to bring new life to this holiday theme.

Unaccompanie Minors - DVD Features

If you didn't fall asleep or walk out of the theater during this movie, you might enjoy the mediocre DVD features. Catch additional scenes, listen to commentary from the stars and the director and watch fun featurettes like Charlie's Dance Reel and Guards in the Hall.

Unaccompanied Minors - Bottom Line

The storyline is as predictable as Meatloaf Mondays, the gags are gag-worthy and none of the actors really live up to their potential. This holiday flick isn't nearly as charming as it could be, but if you're desperate for something festive and funny this Christmas, rent it.
