Storyline

Junior is a preteen worm who struggles to be accepted by his peers, only to get bullied for being spoiled by his overprotective mother.

To get back home and save his own kind, Junior must first learn the powers of self-respect, trust and true friendship. Written by Nico

Trivia

The yellow MFP helmet worn by one of the worms is a reference to the classic Australian film, "Mad Max" (1979). MFP stands for "Multi Force Police" and the yellow, red and blue design on the helmet is based on the color scheme of the MFP Ford Falcon XB police cruisers driven by Max Rockatansky (Mel Gibson) and other policemen.

Not For Me
7 October 2017 | by CalabossSee all my reviews

This is a cartoon, excuse me, animated movie, from Brazil. It is called Worms, or Earthworms: The Movie, depending on where you saw it. It uses a combination of stop motion and computer 3D animation. It has an animated "look" that does not appeal to me. I think the first time I saw this look was in Chicken Run (2000). I'm not sure if this look is achieved through design or financial necessity, but I'm not digging it.

It's good vs evil, worms vs pill bugs, and the whole affair has very little to entertain an adult mind. I'm a long way off from being five or six years old, so I don't know how it plays out for them. Although, with the prominence of snot and drool, the producers are working hard to entertain that particular audience.

Originally in Portuguese, I saw the English dubbed version. No voices I could recognize here. You won't find Tom Hanks or James Earl Jones in this for sure. We are used to just about anything being anthropomorphized for the screen, and they are reaching as low as you can go regarding which creatures you wish to see acting human. I mean, it's worms doing the kissing here. C'mon.

I'm not sure how much kids will like this, but their parents watching with them will just be waiting for this thing to be over.
