The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Star­ring Frankie Mu­niz from Mal­colm In The Mid­dle, you’d ex­pect a ready teen au­di­ence. Even adults might get a chuckle or two, par­tic­u­larly from the per­for­mance of Paul Gia­matti ( TheIdesof March, ColdSouls) as sleazy Hol­ly­wood pro­ducer, Marty Wolf. Wolf, scout­ing lo­ca­tions in Michi­gan, is the cad who steals a class pa­per that 14-year-old ninth grader Ja­son (Mu­niz) has had to write af­ter an­other spot of bother at school, where he’s known as a teller of tall tales. When Ja­son dis­cov­ers his es­say has in­spired the plot of Wolf’s lat­est movie, he en­lists the aid of his best friend Kaylee (Amanda Bynes) to sneak away to Hol­ly­wood, re­store his name, and beat Wolf in his own den. Such ef­forts pro­vide oc­ca­sional laughs and a bit of fun. ★★✩
