Trivia

Mrs. Who is known for speaking in quotes, and referencing by using the quoted's last name and country. (Although she does sometimes use her own words) This movie has added some pop culture references. One of these is near the end, when the Mrs. say good bye to the children. Mrs. Who says " 'Tomorrow there'll be more of us.' Miranda, American." This is indeed a reference to Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway hit "Hamilton", as lyrics from the song titled "The Story of Tonight". See more »

I want to gouge out the part of my brain that remembers this movie
12 March 2018 | by cdlarsen-41638See all my reviews

I HIGHLY recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys flying lettuce, terrible acting, giant Oprah in a mermaid costume, or awful confusing plots with terrible direction. Disney - as someone who had to sit through this film I respectfully request that you use your Marvel money to build a time machine and give 2 hours back to any audience forced to see this abomination.
