Better than the others say.
9 March 2019 | by ChinkyFunbagsSee all my reviews

It's low budget but not in a bad way. They saved money by only having a few characters and sets. The acting, story and over all look wasn't bad for a 20 year old kids movie. The only thing I didn't like was that the evil queen didn't know some words but quickly understood their complex definitions. As someone who has seen loads of bad movies, I know that's common among aliens who come to Earth so I can let it slide. I didn't really understand the ending but it didn't change my opinion. But it's a kids movie and they won't over think it and will probably love the end. The version I saw was called Goobers!, which was a much better name. After seeing the original name it's easy to understand why they changed it.
