Balloon kingdoms, dopey police dragons and happy wizards are exactly how Terry remembered his Grandmother's whacky fairy tales. Except they are real and it's definitely not as 'cheerful.'

IMDb - is it at all possible to rate less than 1?
12 January 2019 | by msargeant-26624See all my reviews

Seriously, don't waste a moment of your time - we watched this at home and it was so bad I considered moving house!

Everything is utterly awful. The voices don't really make sense with the characters, the animation is terrible and the only thing worse is the writing! OMG how did anyone read the script for this and think 'oh that's a good movie' - whoever did, needs to be seen by some senior psychologists because they clearly aren't making good decisions.

If there is one good thing that comes out of this movie, I hope it's that everyone involved with this project decides to leave the animated movie business and do something else with their lives - because it obviously isn't working for them.

Save yourselves - don't just avoid watching this, ban it from your houses and tell everyone you ever meet (just stop random people in the street) to never watch 'Here comes the Grump'.
