Storyline

The story about a man-sized frog named Prince Frederic who is turned into a frog by his wicked aunt Messina and hired by British Intelligence to solve the mysterious disappearances of some of Britain's greatest monuments. Several hundred years later, Freddie is now living in modern-day Paris -- a six-foot-tall amphibian with the moniker Secret Agent F.R.O.7. Messina, too, is still around causing mischief, joining forces with an arch-villain named El Supremo in a scheme to shrink Big Ben. Freddie, alerted to Messina's nefarious plans, gathers his fellow agents Daffers and Scottie together, planning to hide out in Big Ben and surprise the evil doers when they are set to strike at the much-loved British landmark.

Wholly crap... maybe the worst animated film ever
15 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was reminiscing with my sister about movies from our youth, and we recalled this movie... with utter derision. I got so worked up by the craptastic quality of this festering boil of a movie from my childhood that I felt compelled to vent on IMDb. There aren't any spoilers in this comment, because that would be impossible; the movie is spoiled enough on its own.

Anyway, on the to movie. Apparently, some little French prince Frederick gets turned into a frog by his evil magical aunt after she kills his father so that she can usurp the throne. Poor lil disenfranchised frog-boy runs away to live with his amphibian brethren to stay safe from her malevolent hatred. Oh yeah, he's magical, too. No explanation for why (apparently it runs in the family), but he's just got the power to... I'm not even sure how it works, he just does random things magically. There's a kind of blueish light involved. Anyway, he gets tired of life as a mere frog, and makes himself human-sized and... well, I guess he travels through time or something. It doesn't need to make sense, because hey, he's got magic. So he can time travel and change his size, but he remains a frog. Maybe he's trying to make some kind of point about how skin color doesn't matter, it's what's on the inside that counts. Beautiful lesson. So all of a sudden we're in modern day England, and Freddie is now a secret agent (wtf???) and his aunt comes back, and there's singing, the Loch Ness monster appears, and my head wants to explode. I can't even remember the ending, because my mind has vomited it from my memory.

The technical aspects of the movie are just as repugnant as the plot. The animation is crap (everyone moves slowly and floaty-like), the voice acting is TERRIBLE (everyone talks like they move: more floatiness and slowness), the story is completely incoherent, the character development is nonexistent, the songs blow, the jokes are NOT jokes, and logic has no place in the universe that the film has constructed. Not to mention the fact that Freddie's French, so that's like 18 strikes against the movie right there (that's just a joke, for all you oversensitive Francophiles out there who might not have realized it). You might be saying, "Why, this is a CHILDREN'S movie. Does any of this matter? The kids will still enjoy it." In response I say: Yeah, I know that, yes it does, because no they won't. I'm evoking the same emotions I felt when watching the movie at age 8 or 9 or whatever (I haven't seen it in years, but that's only because I don't hate myself). I suppose I could give it a better rating than 1, because it does have redeeming value as comic fodder. I could, but I won't. This movie will cause children to weep, women to wail, men to gnash their teeth, and frogs to search frantically for somebody to sue for defaming their species. You can try watching "Freddie as F.R.O.7" (I haven't mentioned how much I hate the title... but I hate it), but you'd probably have more fun using it as a shot put.
