You can probably enjoy it the one time but if you analyse it the villains are incredibly incompetent (when you consider that an overweight security guard took out all of them). It is also very predictable because of how the movie follows the plot of Die Hard very closely, (you'll understand what I mean if you've seen Die Hard 1 and 2). I found the movie very boring up until the part where the mall gets taken over. Then I found it harmlessly silly and very fun, I liked Kevin James in this along with most of the cast. A decent one time watch.

(ca) wrote: It's refreshing to see a children's film that not only passes the Bechdel test, but does so with flying colors. Whitman and her co-stars bring humanity and life to characters who could've been completely boring. On top of that, Tinkerbell is a decently animated little Disney video that, though pretty slight and ordinary, is also super cute and funny. Anyone with small children could do much, much worse...A nice little surprise.
