I love this for its nuttiness, irony, and for all the things it doesn't have: coarseness, violence, nasty words. It could've been made by the BBC.

This was just okay...CGI at it's beginning? I'm spoiled now...loved to see Bob Newhart and Jane Curtain. Just too cheesy for my taste.

Cheesy, lame, low-budget (obviously fake sets) spoof on Indiana Jones (listen for the similar "love theme") but still fun to watch if you are willing to relax and not take it seriously

A delightful bit of fancy. Noah, Bob & Jane play this movie with a great deal of fun.

There are three kinds of very enjoyable action movies - and this is one of them. This is not a spot on blend of hilarity and action like Avengers or Die Hard. This is not a wildly intense action movie like Mission Impossible. I would describe this movie like a made-for-TV version of The Mummy - the effects, etc. are not as big or well done, but it is quality enough and a fun watch.

Super duper cheesy in a similar style of Xena and Hercules cheesiness. You're watching for the cheesy, silly nature of the show!

There's lot of action so it's good for adults & teens. I don't think it's for little kids. Not the best script or acting but it has no profanity, nudity or serious gore. It is enjoyable.

What if your friendly neighborhood librarian were secretly a combination of Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and Batman..?! Fun premise (with at least two more sequels!)

Quite fun in a disposable kind of way. Entertaining, and a great supporting cast with Jane Curtin, Bob Newhart, and Olympia Dukakis. Doesn't quite stand up to direct comparison with its model, the Indiana Jones franchise, so try to not to think about that. You'll spoil what fun there is. Take it on its own terms and just enjoy.

This could easily have been a fun movie for almost the whole family, but an unneeded sex scene was thown in.

Nicole Noone: Hey, let's stop for a moment, and consider. I'm way out of your league. Way out. If your league were to explode, I wouldn't hear the sound for another three days. So for everybody's sake, let's just enjoy a companionable silence.

Flynn Carsen: Professor Harris. I should've known he was evil. He gave me an A-minus.

Flynn Carsen: I just want to get to know the Nicole beneath the surface arrogance. Peel back the layers.
Nicole Noone: What do you think is below the surface arrogance?
Flynn Carsen: More arrogance. And then perhaps a few delicious layers of flaky disdain. All around a creamy sweet center of homicidal rage.
