Synopsis from Yahoo! Movies:
A taxi driver gets more than get bargained for when he picks up two teen runaways. Not only does the pair possess supernatural powers, but they're also trying desperately to escape people who have made them their targets.
It's been a little bit since I've seen this movie but I wanted to put up something since it's also been a really long time since I've written anything up for Boob Tube. I've neglected this place for far too long. Sorry guys!
Last month, I took my darling daughter to her doctor's appointment and then we spent the rest of the day together (ditching work and school) and we did a lot of Mommy/Daughter things. Like we went to the bookstore, HA! and bought books. She got a bunch of children's book and then I got a bunch of romance books (yay!) and then we had lunch together at my friend's restaurant and then we went to the movies and saw this movie.
I can tell you right now that this movie was too cute for words. I thought that The Rock played a swell cab driver Jack and this movie was a fun filled, action packed movie that is perfect for the kids. Brenna loved it. She gushed with her cousins about this movie after we left the theater and she wanted to see it again, she wants to own this movie on DVD and I agree with everything she had to say about it.
She thought that Seth was a cutie patootion. I thought so too. She thought it was a fun movie and so did I. We both thought that movie was fun, witty and wildly entertaining. The special effects made the movie pop (especially in the theaters) and the cast was great, the storyline was great and Brenna now wants to read the book so I have to find those books for her.
I would definitely recommend this movie to any of you guys out there looking for a good family movie to take the kids to. This one is definitely worth going to the movies and paying the money for though since it's been awhile since the movie came out, maybe you guys should just wait for DVD (dude, it's probably already out on DVD for all I know and pay attention) but I would definitely be owning this movie so you should too. =)
