Synopsis: The son of an eccentric detective steps into his father's shoes after his mother is wrongly arrested for stealing a baby panda.

Reaction: Pretty forgettable. With the added drawback of relying heavily on made-for-tv budget and kid actors. Fine for kids if they enjoy this level of stupid cheese, but not particularly memorable.

Personal Rating: 4/10
