There is no reason for this movie to exist.
8 November 2018 | by CriticalOfEverythingSee all my reviews

This movie is truly terrible, there are no redeeming factors at all. The animation is awful but at the same time it isn't painful to look at, but that makes it worse. The voice acting is absolutely atrocious and coupled with it's terrible script makes it all the more aggravating to listen to, and the plot is unbearably cliche and unoriginal in every sense of the word. This story has been told so many bloody times before, except it was actually done pretty well a few times. Every attempt at comedy is embarrassing and every time there was comedy I cringed so hard to the point where I couldn't even look at the screen. I have no idea why these types of movies even exist. You know, the incredibly low-budget and cliche animated movies that only exist so you can put it on to stop your child from crying for about an hour? If you want to entertain children then give them something that's actually good like a Pixar movie. Even with some of Pixar's worst, besides Cars 2, there is a lot of effort put in to it to make sure it's acceptable and not offensive to the young viewer's brain. I really cannot recommend this to anyone. Watch something that's actually worth watching. This movie is obscure, and it needs to stay that way.
