This movie has it all!
27 November 2002 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

A new classic, in the genre of kid's movies with horrible puppets. Not since Pet Shop has there been such a repulsive puppet star, as stiff and awkward as the script in which it reads. Butter up the popcorn, dim the lights, and get ready to fast-forward through the human actors, cause this bird really knows how to fly!

My score: 2
