We gave it a B

An adventure-novel fan (Abigail Breslin) calls on her favorite author (Jodie Foster) for help when her island paradise is threatened by invaders. Equal parts Romancing the Stone and Home Alone, Island promises kidventure thrills and some unexpected slapstick from Foster, who plays a klutz who gets licked by the likes of a tree, a treadmill, and an affectionate seal (and that’s just in the trailer). (April 4)
