Call it a kinder, gentler (and supernatural) version of “The Goonies”, set in Hawaii. This tween-friendly kid flick is fine fun, to be sure, but at more than two hours it does start to drag by the time we near the end; it might be hard to have your little ‘uns sit still for that long. A nice pro-family message and some occasional parent-aimed humor make it watchable, but it’s far from a resounding success.

2.5/5 stars
