3 Months time, pick this up as a bargain bin DVD
20 January 2014 | by chris_rowe-881-168820See all my reviews

We are in the age now where there are literally hundreds of films released a month, on DVD or in the cinema, there is a lot of choice.

I have to say it is rare for animation films that aren't done by Disney/Pixar to become huge success's except the Shrek series. Some of the best I've seen have included the lorax and despicable me.

This film isn't good, it isn't overly entertaining and in my opinion is solely for kids, the joy of most animated films is parents and kids can all enjoy them, this isn't one though.

Like hop, bolt and now the nut job, you cant just make any animal you think of a good character, the plot isn't overly interesting and there is nothing that would make me recommend this film to anyone over the age of 6.

I've seen better straight to TV animated movies, this will be available for next to nothing on DVD in a few months, please don't spend your hard earned money on it.

I never give spoilers, but with this film its hard to spoil as its already pretty awful
