It's Schluufy's birthday, and the Oogieloves (Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie), along with their friends J. Edgar, Windy Window and Ruffy, are organizing a party. (Shh! It's a secret.) Everything is going along just perfectly until J. Edgar trips and loses the last five magical balloons in all of Lovelyloveville--OH NO! The Oogiloves set out to find the magical balloons in time to save their friend's party. Along the way, they meet some very interesting characters indeed, including Dotty Rounder (Cloris Leachman), Bobby Wobbly (Carey Elwes), Milky Marvin (Chazz Palminteri), Rosalie Rosebud (Toni Braxton) and Lola and Lero Sombero (Christopher Lloyd and Jaime Pressly). Can these new friends help them recover the magical balloons and get back to the cottage in time to celebrate Schluufy's surprise birthday? Written by Official site

DO NOT listen to the rave reviews!
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like the last two people who have commented here, I am DUMBSTRUCK by all the recent rave reviews for this "movie". Seriously, you can tell they're fake! And you wanna know what's worse? Thanks to them, this stupid thing now has a SIX POINT ONE RATING! No really! Just yesterday (last night) I checked and it was 5.9 and already it went up by .2 in less than 24 hours! And a few days before yesterday it was actually at 5.5 and before that 5.1! And as of 19 days ago (August 12 when the last comment was written), it was 4.9! As that person mentioned it was actually at 1.7 before the recent rave reviews and ratings started on June 14-24. And even WITHOUT the REVIEWS, it STILL keeps going up! As if it wasn't pathetic enough already when the rave reviews were coming from users who'd NEVER written a review, had just registered, and STILL haven't written any other reviews since, now it's gotten to where they just register, rate it 10, and do nothing else! Hence now we can't even tell who were the voters, what were their user names, what else they've rated, or if they even saw it. And even if they did, it's clearly the same person OVER and OVER and OVER again. And who else could it possibly be besides someone who was involved in it in SOME way? Unless they have a huge fantard following perhaps, but I highly doubt that! The only morons that could like something this stupid are either toddlers (dumb toddlers, who've never seen a single quality movie in their lives), or someone whose mental ability is that of a dumb toddler.

Bottom line, this is getting WAY overrated. Someone should do something! How this stupid piece of alien excrement that's an OBVIOUS mockbuster of Teletubbies (a great show btw) got a 6.1 while Gordy (a masterpiece of family film-making that's as adorable as the titular talking piglet it's about) got only 3.4 and the Teletubbies got 2.9 is something I will NEVER understand. And guess what else? They have another children's "show" out now called Rabbids Invasion which also rips off Teletubbies! And guess what rating IT got? A 5.8! Yet the REAL DEAL, Teletubbies, got 2.9! Seriously people, STOP supporting this ALIEN ABOMINATION and start supporting Gordy and Teletubbies! Don't support this "movie" or the Rabbids Invasion "show" which is just as bad!

EDIT ON September 2: Now it's up to six point THREE, AND yet another bogus review showed up! Seriously! This should not be allowed! I think all the 10/10 ratings and reviews HAVE to be coming from SOMEONE involved with this thing. This stinky, smelly, STUPID piece of alien excrement. HOW can it get 6.3, yet Gordy STILL only has 3.4! I DO NOT GET THAT! AND I NEVER WILL! Gordy is a quality family film. A film that shows no matter how small you may be, you can always make a difference! That family and friendship are among the most powerful forces of the Earth! What is The Oogieloves supposed to teach? That no matter how terrible, horrible, awful, and STUPID of an idea you may have for a film, it can not only be made, but get released THEATRICALLY? And in over 2,000 theaters at that. And how much money did it make? It got released in over 2,000 theaters and what, TWO people per showing showed up? That alone tells you how bad it is. Even little kids are going to look at it and think, "Is this supposed to be for us? Do they really think we're that dumb?" I mean, I remember some 10+ years ago, after Cinderella II came out on video (unlike Oogieloves it was CORRECTLY released, i.e. DIRECT to video), about a year later they played it on TV, and I'd never bought it (thankfully), so when it aired on TV I thought hey, let's see if it any good. I was about 8 years old then, and even THEN I thought it was dumb! I was like, "THAT'S the long-awaited sequel to Cinderella?" So yes, parents, even kids know when they've seen a movie that was not good. So don't even TRY to expose your children to such UTTER rubbish AND poppycock as The Oogieloves. I also cannot believe this has not yet been reviewed by anthony-rigoni, whose most recent review is for Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale. Most of the statements he made in that review can obviously be said about this as well, especially the first and very last parts of the second paragraph. Like anthony-rigoni said (about Spider's Web but I believe it applies to this and the Rabbids just as much) stay far, far, far away from this cinematic brain tumor that no child should be forced to watch against their will. Don't even try to use it as a cheap baby-sitter. You can use ANY great Disney animated classic for that.

EDIT AGAIN ON September 6: Yet ANOTHER bogus review! The jig is up already man! We know it's all one person! Just shut up already! AND the rating is now 6.5. I wish it would go back to being rated a 1.8 like it was originally, because then it'd be rated lower than ANYTHING in the Bottom 100! That means this SHOULD be in the Bottom 100! At #1! The ONLY place this stupid thing would EVER get any legit recognition (besides the Razzies, and for some reason it did not win any of those, even though it should have won them ALL!)

EDIT ON September 10: THANK YOU dwnetseeker! Well written review! Obviously WAY better written than the "movie" itself! No really! I can safely say that about ALL the 1/10 reviews!
