Oh goodness
15 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can consider the fact that children are children and they will love what they love because it entertains them. I know this is a kid's film and all, based on a somewhat treasured children's show and I am actually cutting it slack by rating it a 2, honestly, because once you have seen the film, you will understand why so many realize how terrible it really is and why they feel the need to criticize it so hardly.

First of all, I wasn't expecting it to be anywhere near good anyway, but I wasn't thinking this would be the worst movie ever either, and it wasn't, because surprisingly I have seen worse, but it is pretty freaking bad. I found myself laughing at it's utter stupidity, and that's really not the good kind of enjoyment when it boils down to the main point, and I was criticizing all the characters just for the heck of it; they were so bland and annoying that I balled my hands into fists at times. The story plot is stupid, characters are stupid, entertainment level is anything but low, just because you're so interested in how horrible it is, but bad, crappy, terrible, horrible and horrendous still all perfectly describe this movie.

Stick to the Walt Disney's for your sake, because children are bound to enjoy one of them at least a little, and it will relieve you of the horror that is Barney, because I feel so sorry for you if your kid asks you to watch this with them.
