Nice Trailer, Bad Movie
30 December 2006 | by (Dresden, Germany) – See all my reviews

After watching the trailer I thought the would be fun, it was curious though that the last function was at 16:30 hrs.

To begin with the animation was nothing special, the drawings of the characters look cheap and the plot could have been written by a four-grader. It was boring and I feel cheated by the trailer (in a "happy feet" way).

At least I realized that Europe can produce exactly the same kind of superfluous, empty and bad movies without Hollywood. Another disappointing film.

Keep your money and don't watch this crap.
