"In Mitchell's License (2011), Mitchell pretended his father was a car, racing him (rather ignominiously) around the house. Dad gets his revenge in this sequel when he takes his son to the bowling alley and throws strike after strike. Mitchell knocks down a few pins, but not without difficulty. 'That's when the people next door asked for a new lane,' Durand deadpans as Fucile shows Mitchell sprawled on a neighboring lane. Just when Mitchell is ready to give up, his father finds a solution that works for both of them. Mitchell's energy remains second to none. Ages 3 7. Agent: Pippin Properties. (Sept.)"
