It was totally boring and no fun
8 January 2009 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

The movie was totally boring and no fun. I was not laughing much when I was seeing this movie. Even, the story was not at all. Only, when Ratso is crossing the frozen water, that scene was little thrilling otherwise the other scenes are not Comedy, thrill or anything. In some movies, the last scene will be awesome and cool, but in this movie, the last scene was boring and there was no thrill or entertainment at the last.So, this is was my another worst movie of the year. And some time only it is funny with the Ratso and that time I laughed a little. Animated movies are fun and entertaining, but this was not very Comedy or action or anything which is entertaining. So, I think the creators of "The Ugly Duckling and Me!" will do their future movies well and entertaining for the people.
