“Dadknapped” is a squeaky clean movie for children and teenagers. The script is rather lame at first, especially the annoyingly juvenile and irresponsible father who keeps immersing himself in a fantasy world. No wonder his daughter is so fed up with him! Towards the second half of the movie, when the elements for adults come in, it gets substantially better. Though the nonsense persists, the emotional subplot really strikes a chord with the viewers, because the bond between Mr Morris and Melissa is so real.
