To honor the 10th Anniversary of The Fairly OddParents, a live action movie was made called "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up Timmy Turner".
The story focuses on Timmy Turner (played by Drake Bell) who at the age of 23 is still a kid at heart. He still lives at home with his parents, still attending the 5th grade and has his godparents Cosmo (voiced by Daran Norris; live-action by Jason Alexander), Wanda (voiced by Susanne Blakeslee; live action by Cheryl Hines) and baby Poof. The reason being is that Da Rules dictate that godchildren lose their family if they grow up to be adults. However when Tootie (played by Daniella Monet in both her geeky and beautiful looks) returns after a 13-year absence looking beautiful, Timmy begins to have strange adult-like feelings for her. This leaves him making a very difficult decision; grow up and be with the one person that he loves or stay as a kid and be with the fairy godparents he considers his family. At the same time, Timmy's crazy teacher Denzel Crocker (played by David Lewis) teams up with a rich oil tycoon named Hugh J. Magnate Jr (played by Steven Weber) and captures Timmy's fairy godparents in the hopes that they can fulfill their sinister goals. With Timmy's godparents captured and used for their evil ends, Timmy must now make a decision that can change his life forever.
My thoughts about this movie, it's alright but I have a few complaints. The good things are the actors that they chose for the movie. Drake Bell does really good for Timmy Turner even without the signature buckteeth. Daniella Monet was exquisite playing the beautiful Tootie as well as the geeky Tootie too.Read more ›
Kids may enjoy this movie but chances are, they're only laughing because it contains a lot of stupid/dumb jokes (such as bird poop on head, a bunny laughing evilly, baby talks in punk-like voice, etc..
This movie does not hold true to the show on so many levels... so if your kid watches this, s/he may be a little disappointed in some areas...
I would recommend renting this and not buying it (although I personally think renting is a waste of money... even if its cheap... worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life).
This movie was made with one purpose: to make money.
What else is the purpose of a movie that isn't consistent with it's show?
Kids may not fully understand how bad a movie this is, which is fine... it was made for them to enjoy. However, I would recommend buying a movie that can deliver laughs, makes sense, and teaches kids a lesson. (The only lesson here I found was that it's okay to never grow up. Yes, I'm serious. In the end, Timmy is able to keep his fairies and act like a kid for the rest of his life. Moral? You don't have to ever grow up.)
Anyways, there are so many other (better) movies than this one.
The show is awesome, the movie.... horrible.
Let your kids watch it (get it out of their system), but don't own/buy it. (unless you have a "bad movie" collection).
