The quirky lead and his cute spunky daughter could have been a winning combination. The story is just too simplistic and childish, and the first half of the film is very flat.. mostly the writer guy looking panicked and crazy running around the same large bookstore set. Probably the blandest location I've seen, and the other location, the mine, looks like the sets used for early Star Trek outdoor areas which were actually in a studio.
I guess at the end it all tied up, but it's like it was written for a 12 year old boy. There was very little depth and not much fun along the way, and the motivations of the characters were less than superficial. I hope this was a low budget film, because ot could have been made for about 10 000 dollars, including wages. Filming was ok though. Not sure what else to say because content was pretty drab.
