Horrible, Horrible, Horrible. An abysmal corruption of a wonderful book.
9 March 2007 | by Black_ButteSee all my reviews

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible. An abysmal corruption of a wonderful book. Don't bother with this piece of junk. I have two children and have seen my share of stinkers, but this one might take the cake! The story differs from the book and the writers have added additional characters (not necessarily bad, but in this case they are). The most egregious change, however, is the wholesale rewrite of the main characters' personalities. For those who are familiar with the story, the birds have been re-written to be antagonistic rather than accommodating to Stellaluna. Stellaluna is a cast as an unwanted outsider. The firm mother bird from the story, is now a overly sweet, loving character. The animation is comparable to Saturday morning cartoons circa 1990. I'd rather watch static than this rotten film...better yet, read the book!
