Not worth the $1 I spent to rent it.
28 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is the first time I've been compelled to review a movie online at all. I just had to so that no one else wasted money on this movie (The company that made it wasted enough for all of us). I only endured this movie because my son said he wanted to finish it to see what happened. Endure is really a tame word. Every 25 seconds or so one of the characters was taking part in a violent act or talking about something violent or murderous. This was interspersed with off-color jokes (none of them remotely funny) and a script that couldn't be written that badly on purpose. The music was sub-par and sappy. The animation was just so-so. On and on.

I like slapstick comedy, creepy violence and off-color humor but this was even unbearable as just me, not the parent me.

The message was really trying to be positive: The residents of the forest band together to try and save it from a money-grubbing human with plans to level the forest and pave a road right through it; but it just failed completely as a whole.

Sorry Ms. Houston, Mr. Astin, Mr. Ribisi and Mr. Perlman this is the worst movie I have ever seen. Also, it is definitely not for children.
