Wholesome Family Comedy
8 March 2020 | by Hollywood_YodaSee all my reviews

To be honest, I didn't know what to expect when I started watching this film with my son, I mean you never see Pauly Shore and G rated in the same sentence, much less the same movie. The premise might be cheesy for standards of movies being released as of 2020, but the story of Opposite Day is pretty wholesome entertainment for the entire family.

The film had some rather funny moments, and the acting and direction weren't terrible either. Kids will have fun seeing the kids on screen taking control and doing adult jobs, especially the police. Dick Van Patten as the grandfather made the whole movie for me, he's such a family friendly actor and comedian.

Give it a watch, you won't be disappointed and neither will your children.
