The Oogieloves In The Big Ballon Adventure is not only one of the worst movies i've ever seen, it's the worst children's movie i've ever seen! It's everything that's wrong with children's shows wrapped up into one movie. Having left the theater, i'm still incredibly shocked that a film this terrible got a theatrical release. First off, this is some of the laziest writing i've ever heard for a kids film. Just look at the characters names! Goobie, Zoozie, and Toofie! And if you think that's bad enough, just wait until you hear some of the supporting cast characters names. Rosalie Rosebud, Marvin Milkshake, and the worst of all is Carey Elwes character's name Bobby Wobbly. The saddest of all is Christopher Lloyds role which is just embarrassing. You can tell for the most part though that none of the supporting cast wanted to be there because they aren't even trying at all. The plot of the film is as simple as it gets. The Oogieloves have the collect the 5 magical balloons they've lost and get them back in time for this big party they are about to have. You can pretty much figure out the whole movie from just that one sentence. What ensues is some of the worst jokes i've ever heard in a film and a bunch of lame dance/musical numbers. Now the Oogieloves is being marketed as a "revolutionary interactive movie-going experience". However, there is nothing revolutionary or original about it. If you've seen Dora The Exploreor or anything show similar of that, then you've seen everything that Oogieloves has to offer. There is nothing new here to see, except the material being taken to a new low. The writing is some of the worst i've ever heard for a kids film with all of the jokes involving some sort of gross out gag or flatulence jokes. The musical numbers are also very bland and the songs are not catchy at all. However, I can't really say the film bored me because it just kept irritating me and making me more and more angry by how awful it was. The fact that this is what people are accepting for children's entertainment is shocking and is exactly why all kids entertainment these days sucks! Oh, and don't buy into the "Academy Award Nominated Director" crap either, Matthew Diamond was nominated for Best Documentary for a film that nobody saw. I really can't think of anything else to say about this film besides how awful it is. Please Parents, do not take your kids to see this film!
***UPDATE - Another bogus review added by someone who JUSt registered
and NEVER reviewed anything before, and still it's on 1.9!
***UPDATE*** Worst movie opening of ALL time - the American public speaks!
Firstly, I have a pre schooler and I watch a lot of kids movies and TV. Dora can be a little annoying at times to me, but I can see it's educational value and that it has a plot, a point, some thought went into the episodes.
The Oogieloves had a bad plot, bad writing, bad songs, bad acting and was quite frankly and insult to your average pre schooler.
One of the reviews here said it was for 8 years and under, and I say to that NO WAY IN HECK! You will not find a kid above 5 wanting to sit through this garbage.
It makes the lack lustre The Lorax (of which most would say the book was far superior), seem like it should have garnered numerous Oscars.
If I was a writer on this project I would have told them they didn't have to put my name in the credits, it's THAT awful.
NOW, to the bogus reviews - there are 5 here as of this moment - 1 is a good review by someone who has written a lot of reviews, so I can respect that they found something appealing in this pile of dross that I obviously didn't see. 2 are awful reviews like mine, written by people, like me, who have written other reviews.
Two of the reviews are bogus in my opinion, probably written by someone in connection to the movie, since neither of these people has EVER written a review on ANYTHING before. Does that scream fake review to you? Even with the bogus reviews this movie is only on a 2.2 so far, that should tell you it's just plain bad.
Don't even rent it from a Redbox, it's not even worth that much! Parents everywhere hear me, you're going to be happy in a couple of weeks because Finding Nemo is coming back to theaters, save your money and take the little guys to that - they haven't seen it on the big screen and it's even going to be 3D too, now THAT is a movie worth your movie ticket bucks.
I would have given this a zero with no qualms at all, except that there is no option for a zero out of ten!
If I were 3 years old and had this garbage foisted on me...I'd consider
putting myself up for adoption.
If I were 3 years old and had this garbage foisted on me...I'd fling fecal matter at the screen.
If I were 3 years old and had this garbage foisted on me...I'd throw a tantrum just to get taken out of the theater.
If I were 3 years old and had this garbage foisted on me...I'd never want to see another movie again.
This movie was not good.
Don't take your kids to see this garbage. There are TV shows far superior to this. There are classic movies far superior to this. Last year's Winnie The Pooh is perfect for kids. Show them that.
Not this sludge.
My kids and I kind of randomly happened upon Oogieloves in the Big
Balloon Adventure in the store. My oldest (aged 6) liked the bring
packagingshe loves colors and saw that one of the characters had
glasses, like her. We bought the film and took it home and watched it
that evening. My two kids really enjoyed Lovelyloveville and getting a
chance to explore a new place and learn new songs. In that way, it
really was an adventure!
Another thing I liked about the film was that this really was a children's film. I didn't feel like there were any subtle inappropriate undertones designed to appeal to an adult audience. This was pure children's entertainment, although its great cast (Toni Braxton, Jaime Pressly, Christopher Lloyd) are a wink to the parents in the room. That said, these stars are great in the film, and my kids especially liked Lero Sombrero, played by Lloyd, even though they obviously had no idea who he was.
This had to be the worst kids' movie I have ever seen in my life; my four year old and I we were the only two in the theater watching it today; she must have asked me 10 times if the movie was over and if it was time to go. The voices didn't match up to the film and the whole thing was a big old' mess. The songs were silly and not in a good, silly for kids way; just silly and meaningless. We missed the first few minutes, which I usually hate, but I think that save us a few more minutes of misery. Perhaps the glow stick had something to do with the beginning that we missed, but she kept asking me what it was for. I like the idea of kids being able to interact, and maybe if there had been someone else in the theater, she would have been motivated to get up, but it just didn't work.
My daughter raves about this film! She became very excited to watch it!
She is just five.
But somehow her love of this film has spread throughout her kindergarden class.
Her friends come over and they just want to watch this film! I happily oblige and put it ongreat family entertainment.
A lot better than a lot of the other drudge that is on TV.
They should make more film like this.
In fact for kids. Undoubtedly a good entertainment. A good hour in front of screen.
Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure is a film you should add to
your video collection. Toni Braxton and a great cast, catchy songs and
a peppy goldfish: good time guaranteed for all!
Another good thing about Oogieloves besides for this is that it is designed to be interactivei.e.,
the audience should get up and dance! Get up and SING!!!
GET UP AND
PARTICIPATE AND MOVE AROUND!
Definitely a welcomed change in my book, for me and my family. A good hour and one half of solid entertainment.
Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure came out last year to poor
reviews, so I never took my kids to see it, even though they wanted to
and had heard it was good from their friends. I just couldn't stand the
thought of another bad movie, especially since it costs so much
nowadays to see a movie in theaters.
When the DVD finally came out, I bought it. I wasn't sure if my kids would still even remember but they all started cheering when I showed it to them. We decided to watch it on Saturday night as a special treat. I still didn't know what to expect, I had just heard that it was a sing-a- long type of experience. I wasn't even sure what that meant till we watched the movie.
Oogieloves was a lot of fun. My kids and I enjoyed it, and it had very clear, easy to follow instructions for the dances and songs. We were dancing and singing along in no time! Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure is a cute story, even the dancing and singing aside. I would suggest seeing it as soon as you can. Your kids will love you for it!
Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure has
something for everyonemusic, dancing, great costumes and funky sets. Unlike most of these reviews,
I actually didn't love the songs in the movie, although Rosie Rosebud, played by Grammy winner Toni Braxton, sure has some pipes on her. I should mention that my kids liked the songs.
But for me, I stayed to watch because of the clever charactersa fashion forward mirror, a paternal vacuum cleaner, the awesome staff at the cow diner. I would recommend this to a family with young kids looking for a nice film to watch together.
Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure is a sing-a-long, move-a-long
children's film, with "echoes" of the teletubies and Dora the Explorer.
In certain ways, the Oggieloves also reminded me of movies and
television shows from my childhood since each character seemed to be
well thought-out. Today, in movies for adults and kids alike, I can't
help but feel like everything is special effects driven. Plot and
characters often go out the window, especially in Hollywood
However, Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure has characters who really seem to have a backstory. For example, J Edgar, the admittedly slightly incompetent vacuum cleaner nanny, who maybe has issues of his own that we don't see, is in love with the brilliant Windy, a magical mirror and my daughter's favorite character.
Oogieloves is a charming film to watch with your kids. It has great tunes, colorful costumes and some great dance moves. See this film and have a rocking good time! Have your children check it outyou won't be disappointed!
