Movie Review by Jesse
August 15th, 2007

The Worst Animated Film Ever

What an awful mess of a film. I am usually a sucker for animated films, but I don't think I've ever seen a horrible one before this. It's hard to find anything good about this film, because it is really, really terribly done. The animation isn't amazing like that of Shrek or The Incredibles, the writers must have been extremely rushed or completely imcompetent and the voice work isn't even good. This is also probably one of the worst films I have seen in the past few years.

Robert Moreland, the screenwriter, must have been out of his mind. First of all, this is the most ridiculously unoriginal story ever. Second of all, it seemed very rushed with many, many plotholes. It's a corny movie, yes, but that's no excuse for sloppy writing. Usually, a well written animated film can be fit for both kids and adults (like The Incredibles or Toy Story) with many jokes that the kids wouldn't get, but aren't bad in any way. With this film, it may have been intended for both kids and adults, but it doesn't even come close to being entertaining for adults. Most of the laughs are too adult-oriented for the kids, but aren't funny enough for the adults, so where there should be people laughing, it's silent because both the kids and adults are unimpressed.

As I said, the voice work is weak. Some of the voices don't match up with the characters and it seems very choppy. Freddie Prinze Jr.'s voice suited his character, but I don't think Sigourney Weaver's suite hers (I love the woman, don't get me wrong). Wallace Shawn and Andy Dick, however, were well cast.

What this movie was trying to be, I'll never really understand... but what it came off as was a Shrek rip-off. The whole fairy tale land with all of the characters from popular fairy tales... it just was not original whatsoever.

Overall, this film is crap. An absolute embarrassment to animation work and film in general. There was two laughs.. I counted them. This film might be intended for kids, but I don't even think they would like it. I do not recommend this to any living creature. It should be shown to rocks and other inanimate objects that don't have eyes.
