This modern version of Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale is charming. Ratso is a streetwise chancer of a rat whose theatre show is struggling. Then he finds an egg that hatches a mutant swan. Ratso soon sees the potential of showing Ugly as a freak. But things go awry when rodent heavies appear...Written by
The scene where Ugly hatches out of his egg and jumps onto Ratso's head is a shot-for-shot parody of the scene in Alien (1979) where the Facehugger jumps out of its egg and latches onto Kane's face. See more »
In the end, when Ratso wears the tie, there's a few shots that he has no tie at all. See more »
Even if you have never seen, you already realize that a movie is bad when there is no specialized criticism about the movie on Rotten Tomatoes, and when there are only 5 comments (6 now with me) in the IMDb, the majority written 10 years ago.
Well, I'll be as sincere as possible: This film is insufferably, unbearably bad. One of the worst animation I've ever seen. I think only "Titanic's animated movies" and "Food Fight" overcomes this. I unfortunately watched it with my dear father some 10 years ago, in a period that I didn't have the habit of reading reviews on the internet before venturing into the theater. In short, my father lost his money and we lose almost two hours of our lives that no longer return.
The story is so forgettable, the characters are so generic that one hour after the end, you will forget all about the movie. I can only remember a ridiculous scene in a generic amusement park (or something like that) and the ugly duckling turning teenager in a blink of an eye.
Take my advice: preserve your time. If you have not watched this thing yet, feel happy: you have lost nothing.
