The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure (2012)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Although it may serve as a passing diversion for very young viewers, The Oogieloves fails to offer much more than several brightly colored examples of the worst stereotypes of modern children's entertainment.

The whole thing runs about an hour too long: It should have been a TV show. The adventure's too big for the kids who would love it the most.

If only there were something on screen to keep your adult brain from dissolving into strained peas.

A prime contender for most peculiar wide release of the year.

There are no villains in this movie but there's lots of suspense and problem solving involved in retrieving the balloons.

It's like paying to watch a dumbed-down mash-up of the least creative parts of "Teletubbies," "Barney & Friends," and "Pee-wee's Playhouse."

If you have preschoolers or fond memories of tots smiling at friendly costumed characters, you may find a soft spot for this gentle film ...

Audience Reviews for The Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure

zero stars. This could quite possibly be the worst kids movie ever made. I know the target audience is 3-5 year olds but my 9 year old daughter really wanted to see this. The movie is a laughable piece of garbage and Emelie while laughing at its stupidity. I hope stars like Cloris Leachmen, Christopher Lloyd, Chazz Palminteri, and Cary Elwes were well paid up front as this movie now has the distinction of being the lowest grossing U.S. box film to date. HInt: Erase from your acting resume now! In my opinion, it should be used in place of waterboarding during government interrogations although this mess might be too cruel.

TOOK MY KIDS TO SEE THE OOGIELOVES AND THEY KEEP ASKING ME TO BRING GOOBIE HERE TO DANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
