Audience Reviews for WonderWorks

[color=blue]:rotten: THIS........THIS............THIS..........THIS WAS THE WORST FILM I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!!! The only characters I were rooting for were the bad guy.[/color] [color=#0000ff]The pleseanty retarted move was about a boy who is supposed to buy a turkey for Thanksgiving. Instead he comes home with a 266 pound chicken named Henriatta![/color] [color=#0000ff]zzzzzzzzz..... I wanted to fall asleep. This film has no charm. The chicken has to be the worst part of the film. It is a huge chicken. Its eyes are plastic. You can see the man in the costume (you see his hair and neck). It has 6 inch wings and it is just........ HORRIBLE![/color] [color=#0000ff]I have to say what is more stupid than a chicken going down a slide and running around the street with a sack of patatoes. Ain't that just wrong?[/color] [color=#0000ff]An award winning snoozer. Seriously.[/color] [color=#0000ff]I'm gonna post 101 reasons or ways you can destroy this chicken. If you have seen this movie you can add on to the list.[/color]
