Happily N'Ever After is proof-positive that Europeans may have us beaten in soccer, wine and luxury cars, but they still can't make a decent 3-D cartoon.

This movie is the worst kind of offender: it thinks its funny and clever, but it is neither. The filmmakers have mistaken banality for wit and silliness for humor, and that doesn't begin to address how visually clunky this motion picture is.

Quantities of unimaginative CGI do nothing to perk up a barely sketched storyline. I spent the movie scratching my head over which audience the studio is hoping to profit from with this noisy rubbish. YouTubers? Tots with ADD?

N'ever was an apostrophe so misplaced, n'ever was the prospect of good cheer so perversely defeated.

The CGI animation is third-rate and unimaginative. The screenplay isn't nearly as funny as it thinks it is . . . In short, HAPPILYN'EVER AFTER is a disappointment.

There's one great clue that the picture was not born in Hollywood: the heaving bosoms. Only the Germans would bestow such careful, pillowy attention to the bustline of the wicked stepmother and the flying witches.

From the producers of the Shrek series comes this annoying Shrek ripoff, a wannabe fairytale spoof with no imagination.

The as arbitrary and pointless as the apostrophe in the second word of the title...

It wouldn't seem possible, but this is yet another fractured fairy tale in which the characters subvert their own genre in self-conscious, smart-alecky fashion.

There is the requisite bathroom humor (though it's mild) and a wan effort to be a bit edgy by updating the looks of Cinderella. But it takes more than a spiffy short haircut to make a character memorable.

The rationale behind this unattractive animated comedy, a U.S.-German coproduction, seems to be that since it can't create a fairy-tale world of its own, it might as well riffle through many of the more familiar ones.

Despite attempts to turn the fairytale genre on its head, the characters are predictable stereotypes.

Not counting derivative, obnoxious, poorly animated, and woefully unfunny, what Happily is most of all is dull.

If you're old enough to read this sentence, you should probably go see something else.

As an animated film, it may share the bright palette of a Disney feature, but its computer animation lacks the polish and detail of a Pixar film.

Putting a spin on classic fairy tales is nothing new, and unfortunately that's just what the Shrek-lite animated feature Happily N'Ever After brings to the big screen.
