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.

Movie Info

It's Schluufy's birthday, and the Oogieloves (Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie), along with their friends J. Edgar, Windy Window and Ruffy, are organizing a party. (Shh! It's a secret.) Everything is going along just perfectly until J. Edgar trips and loses the last five magical balloons in all of Lovelyloveville--OH NO! The Oogiloves set out to find the magical balloons in time to save their friend's party. Along the way, they meet some very interesting characters indeed, including Dotty Rounder (Cloris Leachman), Bobby Wobbly (Carey Elwes), Milky Marvin (Chazz Palminteri), Rosalie Rosebud (Toni Braxton) and Lola and Lero Sombero (Christopher Lloyd and Jaime Pressly). Can these new friends help them recover the magical balloons and get back to the cottage in time to celebrate Schluufy's surprise birthday?

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

This was bad. I saw it because I was reviewing films for a clubhouse in Hyannis. I wanted to gouge my eyes out of their sockets.

Oogieloves may be the thing of dreams-an affordable broadway-esque adventure! My whole family is super excited
