Crazy Credits

Unusual Credit Style: In the closing credits, there are numerous entries for co-producers & other "producer" positions that list both husband & wife for each credit entry, such as "Jack & Jill Jones". Some credits are simply listed as a family unit. One such co-producer is listed as "The Ross Family". It is rare that credits are given in groupings of families. Most credits are a single person's name. See more »

On my worst movies of the year list
12 May 2014 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

So bad - I can't believe some of the good reviews. The Jester character was horrible and unfortunately on the screen practically the entire movie. The flying monkeys were everywhere and disgusting. A few redeeming characters like Wiser the Owl and Marshall Mallow tried to add some depth to the movie but were strapped by the script. This wasn't even as good as Saturday cartoons as far as the quality of the animation. I agree with the person who said people must be getting paid to write good reviews. I kept waiting for some great Bryan Adams songs

  • but where were they? The initial premise that a whole town would pick


up and move because some shyster told them they had to was also ridiculous.
