This movie is about a crazy adventure of four siblings – Tim, Jane, Barnby A and Barnby B (twins), who are neglected by their own parents. Mr and Mrs. Willoughby hate children and Mrs. Willoughby doesn’t even recognize her daughter. She calls her twin sons as creepy.
The kids always dreamt of a ‘normal’ family but were constantly disappointed. They together plan to ‘discard’ their parents, clear on the wish of becoming orphans. Their belief that they would be better off as orphans than being with ignorant parents, makes them plan out a dangerous trip. The Willoughby kids make up a fake brochure for the trip that would kill their parents.
After they successfully send their parents off, they feel blessed to enjoy the freedom. But soon they are interrupted by a nanny arranged by their parents.
The orphans are sent by officials to different houses where they don’t fit well. So they set off to an adventure to save their parents and get them back to end their orphan lives.
DO I RECOMMEND IT?
The concept is new but this is surely an annimated movie just for kids. The probability of you liking this movie is a clear 50-50.
I’m personally not a fan of this movie.
