Movie Info

When Henry fails yet again to hand in his homework, he inadvertently sets off an unexpected and curious chain of events. He forms an unlikely alliance with Moody Margaret, the infuriating girl next door, outwits corrupt School Inspectors, topples an evil Headmaster, wins a talent contest, and stands up to his ultimate nemesis. With each antic crazier than the last, Henry finds himself inexplicably trying to save the very school which he has always professed to hate. (c) Phase 4

Films aimed at families usually plant some jokes to ensure accompanying adults aren't bored witless by an endless stream of goofy gags, but Horrid Henry: The Movie flies defiantly against this trend.

'Horrid Henry' is indelibly flawed and disorderly in tone but not devoid of rambunctious charm.

Forgettable British kid comedy is pretty horrid indeed.

The bogeys and slime are deployed with a wild enthusiasm that doesn't transpire into the diabolically lacking script.

Filmed in eye-popping cartoony colours and with eye-popping cartoony acting to match... the kids mug enthusiastically in school nativity play fashion amid fidgety, hyper-active camerawork that suggests the director has eaten too many blue Smarties.

It is incredibly noisy, messy, completely exhausting and feels as if it is never going to end.

A broad, noisy comedy based on a series of popular books and TV films about a rebellious primary-school boy in revolt against his family, school and all things genteel.

Kids will enjoy the gobby tween attitude and energy, but the paper-thin plot and extraneous 3D antics don't provide the solid laughs of, say, Diary Of A Wimpy Kid.

The action is shot in fits and starts, with silly songs trying to camouflage the lack of a serviceable script. School of Rock, it's not.

It's a cheap, cheerless and laugh-free disaster zone with a woeful script and the sort of performances you'd be disappointed to see in a school play. In a word...horrid!

Ought to be better than it is.

Unutterably feeble-minded and unfunny.

Oh dear, oh dear. Rarely has a film title been more fitting than this disappointing cinematic outing based on the mischievous character created by author Francesca Simon.

Three decades fewer on the clock would doubtless lighten my perspective, but the slapstick here seems gauche, while the script fails to provide the game young cast with much in the way of character or comedy.

A wasted opportunity.

I hate to say it, but Hollywood did it better with Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Shrill, over-eager and frankly disappointing.

Not quite Horrid, but this Henry comes close. Accompanying adults may wish they'd opted for triple detention.

There's not much for mums and dads - this doesn't attempt any cute Pixar-style adult-pitched gags - but younger audiences will revel in the mischievous manipulations of a negative role model.

Over-indulgent children's comedy that's let down by a sloppy script, patchy direction and some poor performances, though it does have the occasional moment and its target audience will probably enjoy it.

July 27, 2011 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

This is complete agony to sit through and with a lead character as snotty and unlikeable as Henry it's one to steer clear of.
