Comedy: A boy and his best friend sneak off to New York so that he can audition for a new musical.

Nate Foster (RUEBY WOOD) is a 7th grader living in Pittsburg with his parents and older brother, Anthony (JOSHUA BASSETT), who's constantly embarrassed by him, especially his love of all things Broadway. His best friend is Libby (ARIA BROOKS) who helps him get through his repeated rejections of trying out for the lead role in school plays. But she lightens his mood and gets his dreams fired up when she informs him that there's going to be a Lilo & Stitch musical and auditions for that are occurring soon.

The only problem is they're in NYC and his parents will never let him go. But as they've already planned a weekend anniversary getaway, Nate and Libby plot to sneak off to the Big Apple, only to find that Nate will need the presence of a parent or guardian before he can audition for the musical. They then happen to run into Nate's aunt Heidi (LISA KUDROW) a Broadway alum who works as a catering employee when not auditioning for plays.

Despite but also due to long being estranged from her sister, she wants to get her nephew back home, but Nate is determined to make sure he gets a shot at living out his dream.

Since it features kids in the lead roles, it might catch the attention of others, especially if they're into Broadway musicals.
For thematic elements, a suggestive reference and mild language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
