Too Cheesy...

I always like childrenís movies because Iím a kid at heart but this one is one of those few exceptions. Thereís not much story that can be found here unless one would like to see fake animals helping out the characters.

On the other hand Gerard Butler is now drifting in an ocean of unparallel horizon on a sinking boat and a sense of urgency to get back to his daughter all alone on an island in the middle of nowhere. The movie falls short mainly because the story was too shallow and c...
