Editorial Reviews

It's Schluufy's birthday, and the Oogieloves, along with their friends are organizing a party. (Shh! It's a secret.) Everything is going along just perfectly until J. Edgar trips and loses the last five magical balloons - OH NO! They'll need plenty of creative thinking, teamwork and enthusiasm to rescue these one-of-a-kind balloons in time for the big celebration. With the help of their best friends and the support of many extraordinary new friends whom they meet along the way, can they recover the magical balloons in time for the party?

1.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the human ken! September 19, 2012
Format:DVD
Over Labor Day Weekend, I took my 5-year-old to see the "Oogieloves" movie (as in, desperate parent needs something to distract child). There were 11 people in the theater, counting us. My son, of course, adored it. For an adult, however, it's a mind-****ing experience in utter badness! I found it fascinating the way people find train wrecks interesting. Take the more bizarre aspects of the Wiggles and multiply them by 50, and you get the idea. Things like weirdly colored puppet people, lead characters such as a vaccum cleaner and a throw pillow, a cowboy with bubbles in his pants, a giant tulip, a flying sombrero and people like Toni Braxton and Christopher Lloyd totally humiliating themselves in an incredibly tacky looking production. It cost $20 mil to make, $40 mil to market, and has taken in $1.0 mil so far! I'm part of a historical event -- one of the few people to see in the theater one of the worst big budget bombs ever!

I'm looking forward to the DVD release, actually. My wife wasn't with us in the theater, and she really needs to experience this with us. I only hope she doesn't file for divorce immediately afterwards for spousal abuse...

1.0 out of 5 stars For bad movie enthusiasts only. February 10, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's probably safe to assume that a lot of the people reading this review had no idea that "Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure" even existed until a few days ago, when it suddenly turned up in the electronics department of their local big box store. Its theatrical release was very poorly marketed; I remember seeing only one TV ad, which protrayed the Oogieloves as though the viewer should already know who and what they are. Then it tanked at the box office. How badly? Well, it had a budget of around $20 million, and it only barely managed to break $1 million in earnings, making it one of the biggest flops in film history. Ouch. It will be interesting to see if it does any better now that it's available for home viewing.

I'm not sure if I want it to.

The bad movie enthusiast in me--who adores "Birdemic: Shock and Terror", "Troll 2", "The Happening", and movies made by The Asylum--wants everybody who shares my taste for the charmingly awful to see this movie. It somehow managed to cost $20 million, but you wouldn't know it. The tiny sets, little more than glorified dance floors, are minimally decorated. The body suits used to portray the characters are abysmal: they sag onto themselves in several places, the seams are obvious, and what little puppetry exists almost never works like it should. Eyes wobble indistinctly. The mouths are very special: bottom lips jut out, corners droop. They're always hanging open, too, giving the overall look of a manta ray filtering plankton. For heaven's sake, the puppets in "Neverending Story 3" are better than these things! There are only a handful of special effects worth mention, and they're all so bad that you may as well be looking at a game produced for the Sega CD or the Philips CD-i.

5.0 out of 5 stars OOGIE LOVE! January 4, 2014
By JB
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie……This movie. To call it strange is an understatement. You have to watch this flop. Just to understand what it means. Its a terrible movie, but if you watch it with your friends and they are all drunk or high you'll have the best time of your life. Just don't take acid and watch it. You might die.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Awful! May 21, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Watching this movie is honestly one of the most excruciating experiences I have had and I appreciate shows for the under 5 crowd. I enjoy listening to many of the shows my toddler enjoys, but every moment of this movie makes me want to find a sharp object and poke out my eyeballs. That being said, I have always encouraged my son to get up and interact with his shows when prompted by the characters. He never has. I was amazed when he spent this entire movie dancing, laughing...repeating words and lyrics. It was amazing! Now I think I have to buy the thing and that makes me sad.

I have too much respect for kids to ever show this atrocity to them, and I bloody hate children -- let that fact sink in about how horrible this movie is to not just adults but kids and I'm fairly certain that this goes along the same lines as Barney in that it's detrimental to children and coping with reality...

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad, that it actually is good again July 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I became fascinated with the bad press this movie got. It must have been the worst rated movie - ever - at least in numbers of visitors it got in theaters. I like mysteries, specifically when they include business models. Here, you have some guy with a much exaggerated ego, Kenn Viselman, who is some sort of self proclaimed genius, a marketing visionary. He is often quoted as the father behind Thomas the Tank Engine and Teletubbies where in reality he did nothing else than distribution in the US.

Oggieloves is the own creation of marketing visionary Kenn Viselman. You have to leave this to Viselman, it introduces some innovation, the interactive movie for very young children. I read somewhere that Viselman applied for a patent for that concept. You can read it in many places, the rest of the movie is beyond pathetic. Though, it is a harmless movie. There is absolutely nothing disturbing happening in the movie, (besides some erotic dreaming of a vacuum cleaner towards a sexy window - I mean your kids won't get this part). No, I find lots of inappropriate content in some teen oriented Disney creations, but this movie is really harmless and pleasant. It kind of leaves the taste like, I want to shoot myself, if I have to sit through another minute of this, but my three kids, 4, 5, and 6 actually enjoyed it.

According to Viselman, he spent $20m making the movie, and another $40m marketing it. Certainly not a "lean"production. Perhaps his genius comes from how you can spend $40m in the most ineffective manner - I meant this is lots of money to get rid of. Even the $20m for production, where did it go?
