Did You Know?

Animator Mark Flood had been looking forward to seeing this film, but was rushed to hospital in the early hours of the day of its UK release after suffering a stroke. After recovering a couple of months later, he did see the film at a local cinema and enjoyed it.See more »
Factual errors: To produce electricity, the dam must keep the water flowing, which will enable the gorge to have some water and not be completely dry.See more »

Worst film I've ever seen, 30 December 2010
Author: wsionynw from United Kingdom

Lazy, badly written, tripe. The plot is so insultingly stupid I wouldn't let children watch it in case it harmed their development. I took my 3 year old son to watch this and even he was bored after 15 minutes (nothing happens in this time)and we ended up leaving 60 minutes into the film, along with several other people that hadn't yet fallen asleep.

There is NO humour in this, completely witless drivel from the start and it amazes me this was ever made. Pointless musical moments, one dimensional 'characters', not even some basic slapstick to keep kids interested. A total waste of time that doesn't deserve to be watched by anyone. The British voice cast should be ashamed of themselves.
