The evil space pirate Gloomius Maximus is determined that since he can't have fun, nobody else will either. Unfortunately for our heroes, an invitation to Zowie Polie's third birthday party accidentally finds its way to Gloomius's ship. Gloomius never had a birthday party himself, so he sets out to make Zowie's as miserable as possible. He tries a glum ray, kidnapping Zowie and Pappy, and ultimately towing the entire Polie Planet to the Gloomy Galaxy. Between Olie's Super Silly Ray (his present to Zowie) and some help from Saturday morning hero Space Boy the day is saved for silliness. The whole planet helps charge up the Super Silly Ray and fix Gloomius's happy gear. Written by

The movie is obviously geared (no pun intended) for the 5 and under crowd I thought it was a lot of fun. Although my favorite movie of all time is 'The Terminator', I have a two-year old and so have had to adapt my viewing habits somewhat to include some, lets say, less than mentally challenging or intelligent programming. One thing I've always enjoyed about Rolie Polie Olie is the nostalgic look of the robots, the character development, the well-written storylines and just the overall sense of fun. I'll admit that its certainly not something I would like to be my one and only outlet for entertainment, The Great Defender of Fun, is something that I can sit and watch with my daughter and still get something from it.
All I can say is that you'll probably pass this movie up if you don't have a child, but if you're reading this than more than likely you're a parent. In that case, I highly recommend this movie, if not at least for James Woods as the evil villian.
