Our Score
Think Home Alone in an airport, and you've pretty much got the measure of this harmless but charmless kids comedy. Young siblings Spencer and Katherine are travelling alone to spend Christmas with their estranged dad. But a blizzard shuts down the airport, stranding them in the terminal. After they're separated by an officious airport manager, Spencer is determined to be reunited with his sister to give her the picture-perfect Christmas Day she dreams of, so assembles a ragtag gang of other unaccompanied minors (including Everybody Hates Chris's Tyler James Williams) and plans a great escape. Under-tens will enjoy the largely anti-adult mayhem that ensues and giggle at such slapstick stuff as two of the gang tumbling down the airport baggage chutes. But adults may well wonder what they've done in a previous life to deserve this.

Summary

Six children, each travelling alone over Christmas from one divorced parent to another, find themselves stranded at an airport during a snowstorm. When the airline employee given the job of dealing with the passengers abandons his post, the kids find they have the place to themselves and proceed to run riot. Family comedy, starring Lewis Black and Wilmer Valderrama.
