If I sound older than a teen or kid, its because I am and saw this movie with my nephew and he seemed to enjoyed it okay, and I enjoyed it a lot.

The critics got this right that this is more for the younger audience, the kids are typical Breakfast Club style characters that are mischievous and then touchy-feely, and it is filled with pretty tedious meant to be funny moments, a rather dull Christmas comedy.

" I was surprised at how funny this actually was, It had the perfect combination of adult humor and child humor which made it enjoyable for me.

To me, this is where the movie picked up and became very enjoyable to the end.

I would recommend it to a select few since not many would pick up on the resemblance to Breakfast Club Without previously seeing Breakfast Club this is just a Home Alone slapstick comedy, only entertaining in a see how many times we can hurt the adults in a painful and unusual way.

it was a very warm and entertaining movie.

In conclusion, this movie is dull but enjoyable to watch it on a boring weekend.

If you want clean and funny and to walk out of the theater in a good mood, see this.

There were a few smiles in it, but mostly not such a great plot - but my kids, 11 and 14, enjoyed it, the 11 year old the most.

I had the misfortune of catching 'Grounded' the other day and found it to be a rather pointless little film not worth the ninety minutes or so it takes to view it, and I'm usually lenient on Christmas films.

The room is crawling with about fifty or sixty ankle-biters, running lawlessly throughout the large, mundane room.

It's a good movie, I really enjoyed it!

a very enjoyable film for the whole family.

And apart from some excess saccharine and cliché at moments, there's some solid story telling here, which I always appreciate.

The kids that were in front of me was so bored they left early in the film.

Nonetheless, it was so unfunny and a complete waste of my time.

Quite honestly, I was bored out of my mind the first 15-20 minutes, which felt like half the movie should have been over already.

Unaccompanied Minors is very entertaining.

Not saying the rest sucks, but those 2 were quite good and made the film enjoyable.

In fact the movie surprises with some unexpected depth at moments were a cheesy joke would've been easier.

It wasn't only funny, but it was entertaining.

to be a much more enjoyable film.

i especially liked the bonding scenes and the promises that were fully successful and many made the overall movie have a happy ending i do contest with anyone who calls this movie a waste of time because i do not understand how?

) were entertaining surprises as opposed to jarring distractions for the most part.

When the airport in snowed in, they go on a rampage with predictable 'Home Alone'-style tricks and out-smarting of airport staff.

Its got a lot of slapstick comedy and should be enjoyable for the family, providing laughs and a pretty feel-good ending.

This film is pointless for anyone who's seen 'Home Alone', a superior Christmassy film about a kid trumping the adults.

It is difficult to lean one way or the other, but enough of the film was worth watching to the end to make me lean more toward the excellent side.

I'm sure it was as the director wanted but even the adults were talking slow and using lots of animated hand gestures.

the rhythm was proper ,not very fast ,but neither boring,keeping you happy and curious.

Fez is incredibly bland.

Enjoyable not as bad as the critics made it out to be.

My friends and I were talking about how entertaining and amusing this movie was.

Almost character for character re-hash of a decent 80's film, yet still entertaining though mostly for it's one liners.

It has poor acting, a yawner of a story, jokes that are not funny, and a fine selection of stock characters that have been so overused by Hollywood, that the whole movie is as appealing as a commercial that you have seen six times in the last hour.

Seriously the movie is good and quite entertaining.

The premise here is that six youngsters, ranging in age from around seven to 14, are flying as unaccompanied minors, when a blizzard strands them at some airport somewhere, where they promptly set out on a mission of mischief that uses a lot of unfunny ideas and drab comic violence (particularly voice changing groin strikes – those are ALWAYS funny, right?

The movie is after all targeted for a junior high level audience, but the filmmakers are skillful enough to make it enjoyable for older viewers.

Unaccompanied Minors blows such a grand opportunity for a kids film, so much so that sticking around to the end is a chore because you see so many ways the film could've subverted its dead end cliché material and watching it stay gridlocked to cheap, disposable schlock of the least common denominator is painful to say the least.
