The wise man can pick up a grain of sand and envision a whole universe. But the stupid man will just lay down on some seaweed and roll around in it until he's completely draped in it. Then he'll stand up and go hey, I'm Vine Man.

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
