Trivia

Please God... make it stop!!!
3 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Oh, what an idiot I am. I read the reviews, and I rented this disc-shaped fragment of decaying bovine excrement anyway.... and believe me, I want those 79 minutes of my life back, desperately. I won't rehash the obvious and pervasive reasons why this just might be the worst animated flick ever committed to film (of course I haven't actually SEEN every animated film in existence, so it's possible that there's a worse one out there somewhere, but I doubt it). Those reasons are adequately rehearsed in the other reviews to be seen herein.

I merely want to issue a warning to other potential viewers who loved the first film as I did, and thus might be thinking, as I did, "It CAN'T be that bad..."

Trust me. It can.
