Very disappointing film. Nothing like the series of (cartoon) Horrid Henry. The start was awful the ending was awful. I gave this a half a star rating, because it wasn't to my liking and the acting was terrible, this could have been so much better.

A British comedy that revolves around an unlikeable main character. If you have kids they might want to watch this movie, and I warn you, don't let them. If you want me to summarize how you will react to this filth, well... As a fictional character once said "Oh yes, there will be blood.

Half a star/5

An intolerable rainbow of loud noises and general schmazzle! They took a fun book character who IS not a real person and made him real. It didn't work. At all.

Funny Story: I was a nominee at the National Youth Film Festival in 2013 and the kid who played Horrid Henry, Theo Stevenwhatever, was a celebrity guest. As we were leaving the venue, this guy walks past us, nods and gives a "hi - I'm famous" smile. I look him in the eyes and shake my head. He left.

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.

Perhaps the worst movie of the 21st Century. Unfunny, unenjoyable and unwatchable. If I could rate this lower, I would.

This is an absolutely dreadful film. There are hilariously bad moments, disappointing celebrity cameos and terrible plot flaws e.g Despite Henry living in London, there are only two schools which he can attend.

The production is not too bad, and it attracts a decent enough British cast, but the story is certainly for the very young.

A great movie for kids! I particularly enjoyed the cameos from all the recognisable British comedians, especially Dick and Dom!

This wonderful film adaptation of Francesca Simon's Horrid Henry books really brings Henry to life. The only thing it failed to accomplish was the special effects.

Why did I watch this? Seriously, the only reason is that me and my friend are doing a "Weird Part of Netflix" night once in a while, and we decided to kick off with this. Sure, it's got its "WTF?" moments, mostly coming from some really horrible CGI, but I find the more reasonable WTF moments more intriguing in here, as the film follows simply horrible logic, and much like Jack & Jill, me and my friend had a LOT (many more this time around) of questions about the realistic responses in it. It has really annoying characters, some really confusing gender roles, just a lot of horrible "jokes", if you would give them the dignity of calling them such, and caused me and my friend to really discuss the school system (which, if this was the intention, great job, actually, but it clearly isn't the focus, so this whole parentheses statement is rather pointless). The plot follows no real structure, and cannot focus on a single conflict at once. I know this is adapted from pre-existing British work, but it does not translate to the screen (though I haven't seen the original work of which this is based, and thus have no knowledge on if it would have in the first place). I know many of you may say "Oh Kyle, it's just a kids movie, don't try to bring any big messages into it, it wasn't made for that"; while you do have a point. it should not be this way. Films like Up, Spirited Away, and Hugo have taught children great messages and have made subjects like early film history fun and exciting. I hold by the mentality that in film, television, literature, or any medium that children can be taught pretty much anything so long as you do it right. I could go on and on about the logic of this film if you were to start a discussion about this film with me, but not now. This film is just a generic kids film with extra annoying, and makes the same stereotypical school-based "kids film" stuff you have seen before. It's (and I don't mean to make this pun, honestly, it's just my word to describe this film) horrid, with no real morals, confusing plot points, hard to follow conflicts, no real logic, insipid acting, generic / annoying humor, oh and did I mention that it is one of the worst musicals I've ever heard / seen in my life? I mean, sans the horrible kazoo chorus, which is simply, albeit unintentionally, hilarious. Besides that though, Horrid Henry: The Movie is just about the perfect example of how not to make a film aimed for children.

I was a fan of the books because they were original...this sucked and didn't live up to the hype of the childhood classics.

It wasn't as good as I thought it would be.
