Students rebelling against the class bully and other authority figures is a concept as dated as the cafeteria's mystery meat. Likewise, Max Keeble's Big Move serves nothing new when Home Alone 3's Alex D. Linz rises up against his oppressors--repercussions be damned--because he thinks his family is moving to Chicago in a few days. The only person who generates the belly laughs is despised principal Larry Miller.
The stand-up comic--who has lately appeared in more Disney movies than Mickey Mouse--has just the right comedic touch and fumbles into some fun physical humor. Linz is an okay pint-size hero, but along with his weak-link friends and parents, he generates no sympathy and little emotion. They all deserve detention for this, but Miller, you can move to the head of the class.
