Starring: Bill Nighy, Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Sam Rockwell, John Favreau, Penelope Cruz, Tracy Morgan, Steve Buscemi and Nicolas Cage

Story: Armed with the latest high-tech spy equipment, highly trained guinea pigs discover that the fate of the world is in their paws. Tapped for the G-Force are guinea pigs Darwin, the squad leader determined to succeed at all costs; Blaster, an outrageous weapons expert with tons of attitude and a love for all things extreme; and Juarez, a sexy martial arts pro; plus the literal fly-on-the-wall reconnaissance expert, Mooch, and a star-nosed mole, Speckles, the computer and information specialist (Walt Disney Pictures).

Rated: PG

Bottom line: G-FORCE is perfect for young children who don’t care about silly things like story, continuity or stuff making any sense. But for parents it’s nothing more than a pointless exercise in patience. Teamwork is important! Beat that mantra (and this movie’s only message) in to your child’s brain and skip the film. There, you’ve just saved yourself twenty bucks.
