“How to Beat a Bully” is similar to “Home Alone,” except in this case, the main kid, Cory, elicits the help of his friends, former bullies who picked on him, to help him beat some members of the Mafia! The action is almost non-stop, and the antics of the kids against the fumbling and tumbling mob members will bring a smile to your face.
One of the funny moments includes a scene of a husband trying to knock spiders off of his wife, and a neighbor who sees the scene through the window thinks the husband is trying to harm the wife. The kids plot to defeat the Mafia members by using sleeping pills and laxatives in their pizza. Parents might want to give some guidance during this scene!
This story is about Cory and his parents, who move to California from New Jersey, and how Cory adjusts to the changes and turns bullies into friends. We are happy to award this movie our Dove Family Approved Seal for ages 12-plus. It is a rip-roaring good time!
