Intended laugh lines fall embarrassingly flat. Most of the humor was so ridiculous that not even the children in the theater laughed. It's just dull.

Very much in the tradition of Looney Tunes and Termite Terrace.

I wanted a moral to the story. In Finding Nemo: Don't let fear rule your life. Shrek: True beauty is on the inside. Madagascar: Don't eat your friends?

If we're not suffering poo-flinging or butt-biting, we get the theme songs from Chariots of Fire and Hawaii Five-O.
