(20th Century Fox)
Starring: Jodie Foster, Abigail Breslin
Nim (Breslin) concocts a plan to find her missing scientist father (Gerard Butler) with the help of an explorer (also Butler) and her favorite author (Foster). A formulaic plot, one-dimensional characters and obnoxious product placement detract from an otherwise
cute kids’ adventure movie. While adults might tire of the film, children will enjoy the whimsical island setting, complete with a bevy of animal stars
