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...
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.Read more ›
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?Read more ›
Some thoughts- That pillow seems awfully... relaxed. Tree girl is pretty darn cute. J Edgar Hoover?!? brilliant joke guys. The cow and the bubble segments are easily the best. Cary Elwes really does something special here. Gad damn it. Balloons. BALLOONS!

This movie is very creepy to me for a few reasons, but there's one reason that stood out from all the others-Toofie's underwear! I keep getting nightmares from that part. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Yumi Fujiwara
My little girl (then 6) asked to borrow this from the Red Box after seeing a poster for it. She usually likes campy shows, and especially loves the *Wee Sing* series, so I thought... Read morePublished on May 11, 2014 by mdenise_mon
