Consensus: Unaccompanied Minors, while featuring credible performances by its mostly young cast, is simply a rehash of other, funnier movies.

Irresponsible content notwithstanding, it's the low standard of filmmaking that really defies belief.

Not for the faint of heart, the movie is unsettling and startlingly true to life.

Reel Film Reviews

...a bottom-of-the-barrel comedy that'll probably leave even small children exhausted by its nonstop energy.

Most Saturday morning cartoons are more realistic, and actually funnier.

Bill Zwecker
Chicago Sun-Times

Unaccompanied Minors may not be the worst holiday comedy ever made, but frankly I can't think of something from that genre that sinks lower than this frighteningly bad movie.

If you really must find something to distract your children from Christmas shopping and material yearning, this one gets top recommendation for happily occupying 90 minutes at the mall.

There are fragments of good comedy packed amidst the many forgettable scenes that you've seen a dozen times before in a dozen other forgettable comedies
