Audience Reviews for Slappy and the Stinkers

Sorry, Olivia and Kayla... I hated it.

Andrew Fillmore

Super Reviewer

A silly family movie obviously meant for kids. It's not great, but not as bad as most people are saying. Who doesn't like sea lions? (First and only full viewing - In my mid-twenties)


Your enjoyment of Slappy and the Stinkers will be directly proportional to your ability to be amused by a farting seal.

Slappy and the Stinkers Quotes

Loaf: Witz? Two pieces of advice: don't insult him [Slappy]. And try not to wheeze. Because, to a sea lion, a wheeze can sound like a mating call.

Boccoli: I'm being attacked by the seven dwarves here.
