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

Critic Reviews for Horrid Henry: The Movie

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (2)

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.

Top Critic

Forgettable British kid comedy is pretty horrid indeed.

Common Sense Media

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

What Culture

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.

Movie Talk

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

Audience Reviews for Horrid Henry: The Movie

This is the worst film I have ever seen. Horrid Henry The Movie is absolutely awful, such a disappointment. This is so poorly made and it is also badly directed. This film could have been a great movie and that opportunity is wasted with this film. I have never been more disappointed with a film. Director Nick Moore directed the film Wild Child which I really really like very much, yet Wild Child is so good and this movie is awful. If only Nick Moore directed this film like he did with Wild Child then this could have been good. Horrid Henry The Movie is a film with a bad plot, awful directing, and bad special effects. The plot is bad, the plot is just Horrid Henry fails yet again to do his Homework, his teacher is sacked so he is invited on Too Cool For School. That is literally it. It's a shame because Anjelica Huston is in this film, she is such a great actress yet in this film she wasn't at her best. Theo Stevenson, he played Horrid Henry, his acting is awful, Matthew Horne his acting is awful. Anjelica Huston is the only decent cast. This film could have been much better. Do not watch this film, it's a disaster. A pretty Horrid film indeed. Awful and unwatchable.

I refuse to believe that this was made in 2011. The over-acting, the primary school color pallette, and especially the terrible music set this cliche piece of brainless kiddie pablum firmly in the 90's. Don't bother.
