What's my ideal cast for a children's movie? Steve Martin! Jean Reno! Alfred Molina! Andy Garcia! Lily Tomlin! John Cleese! Jeremy Irons! I am not being sarcastic.
At one point, Lily Tomlin lectures Martin on sexual harassment in the workplace and the filmmaker's treat us to a nice close up of her rear. Jeremy Irons ends up shirtless several times. Everyone is surprisingly horny for Steve Martin, but that is most of his movies anyway.
I really enjoyed this, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. ... okay, I'm a little ashamed. Everyone looks like they're actually happy to be in the movie. It has no pretensions other than to be a dumb crossover family film that nets the cast and crew a nice European vacation.
