"Six Kids, Stuck in an Airport Without Supervision. Someone Please Call Security."
It s Christmas Eve and a huge blizzard has just shut down the airport threatening to ruin holiday plans for all stranded travelers. Snowed in en route to their father s house two Unaccompanied Minors --dubbed UMs--Spencer (Dyllan Christopher) and his little sister Katherine (Dominique Saldana) are ushered to the airport s Unaccompanied Minors Room a holding cell for dozens of stranded parent-free kids from all over the country. Caught in the crossfire of projectile cupcakes and juice boxes and desperate to escape Spencer makes a run for freedom along with four other UMs who couldn t be more different if they tried: spoiled rich girl Grace (Gina Mantegna) trailer-park tomboy Donna (Quinn Shephard) academic overachiever Charlie (Tyler James Williams) and comic-book geek Timothy Wellington a.k.a. Beef (Brett Kelly). With the airport s peevish Passenger Relations Manager Oliver Porter (Lewis Black) his lackey assistant Zach Van Bourke (Wilmer Valderrama) and every airport security guard hot on their trails this group of UMs from cliques that don t mix learn to ditch their differences and help each other flee the clutches of airport authority. Meanwhile Katherine and the other UMs have been herded to a nearby hotel to wait out the storm. Determined to reunite with his little sister and fulfill her unspoiled vision of Santa Claus arriving on Christmas morning Spencer enlists the help of his UM posse. Working together as an unlikely family of their own they outwit and outrun Oliver and his crew. Plummeting through baggage chutes rummaging around unclaimed luggage and canoeing down a snow-covered hill they turn Christmas at the airport into holiday pandemonium and along the way prove that the holidays aren t about where you are but who you re with.Running Time: 90 min. Format: DVD MOVIE. Genre: COMEDY. Rating: PG. Age: 085391120223. UPC: 085391120223. Manufacturer No: 112022

"...a movie with pleasures for the whole family, and nowadays that's saying something.  Chris Kaltenbach, Baltimore Sun
"A film that's funny and entertaining for kids and adults.  Connie Ogle, Miami Herald

Editor's Note
A Midwest-wide blizzard strands passengers at an airport on Christmas Eve in this family comedy. Security corrals the kids traveling without parents into a large, windowless room. Sans supervision, the area quickly descends into a sugar-fueled LORD OF THE FLIES frenzy, with food fights substituting for any real violence. Five kids attempt to escape: awkward-but-normal teen Spencer (Dyllan Christopher), Harvard-bound brain Charlie (Tyler James Williams), gentle giant Beef (Brett Kelly), rebel Donna (Quinn Shephard), and rich girl Grace (Gina Mantegna). Thwarted by the holiday-hating head of passenger relations (Lewis Black) and an unlucky underling (Wilmer Valderama), the kids try to salvage their Christmas holiday.

Black (THE DAILY SHOW WITH JOHN STEWART) is perfectly cast as the acerbic villain. Though he has toned down his barbs from his normal rage-spewing routine (this is family fare, after all), he's still one of the highlights of the film. Each of the child actors has had a lot of experience for their age, and it shows here. Williams is the title character in EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS, and he shines as the uptight member of the bunch. With hints of HOME ALONE and THE BREAKFAST CLUB, UNACCOMPANIED MINORS appeals to the whole family. For kids, there are plenty of giggle-inducing moments to please. Meanwhile, their parents will enjoy playing spot the celebrity with cameos by actors from KIDS IN THE HALL, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, and NBC's THE OFFICE. Director Paul Feig is best known for his sitcom work, and his former stars show up to help him here. With humor and a little heart, UNACCOMPANIED MINORS is a tasty holiday treat.

Expert Review Unaccompanied Minors - DVD Review
By: Anne Gilbert filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 7/27/2007 11:14 PM
Every year, we get a fresh batch of treacle at the movie theatre, all in the name of "family holiday entertainment;" approximately 68 percent of it stars Tim Allen. Because many Christmas movies have so little to recommend them, when Unaccompanied Minors comes in as "not too shabby," it's actually a rather glowing recommendation, given the context....read the full review

The one fun part of Unaccompanied Minors (besides decent performances by Williams, Black, and Christopher) is playing "identify the cameo by one of the director's former jobs." So as you spot actors from "The Office" (Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, David Koechner), "Arrested Development" (Tony Hale, Jessica Walter) and even "Freaks and Geeks" (Dave Allen), the focus moves onto them, their 30 second bits, and how you should switch to one of those shows on DVD as soon as this movie is over ...read the full review

Reel.com 8 of 10
There's not an original idea in the new family holiday comedy Unaccompanied Minors. Screenwriters Jacob Meszaros and Mya Stark simply mix and match elements from movies that have come before it, dipping into the John Hughes' oeuvre in particular to borrow liberally from the Home Alone movies and The Breakfast Club. But those are not bad sources for something like this. This is not a film swinging for Oscars; it simply wants to provide families with some old-fashioned escapist entertainment. Sure, it's formulaic, but as undemanding fun, it works beautifully...No one will expend a single brain cell watching Unaccompanied Minors. It is not deep. It is not important. And, no, it is not a holiday classic on par with A Christmas Story. But it does provide a lot of laughs and does do exactly what a yuletide movie should: it makes merry. - Pam Grady
