excruciating for anyone over the age of five.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Forget Saw, I'd argue this is the most freakishly disturbing outing of Cary Elwes career.
Full Review | Original Score: F

I am somewhat hesitant to attempt to describe this...peculiar concoction for fear of being accused of base mendacity.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/5
September 4, 2012
Some of the words used are too adult for kids and the length of the movie is much too long.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
August 31, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

If only there were something on screen to keep your adult brain from dissolving into strained peas.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Meant to tickle toddlers, Balloon isn't worth punishing multiplex pricing, delivering small-scale thrills on a limited budget. It's definitely a rental, offering parents a chance to escape while wee ones bop around.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

There's potential to this picture, even if the initial box office reaction is, well, terrible
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 30, 2012
A prime contender for most peculiar wide release of the year.

The road to hell, they say, is paved with good intentions. Walking up that road are The Oogieloves, a trio of the most cloyingly unbearable characters a parent could ever introduce to their preschool child.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 30, 2012
The tale of three multi-colored blobs hunting for lost magical balloons feels like a bad pilot, the kind that post-Barney PBS would reject out of hand.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4

One of the characters proclaims this will be "the greatest movie ever", and you know it won't be. Even the 4-year old sitting behind me was dubious of that claim.

I kept hearing someone mutter, 'The horror...The horror,' as the nearly 90 minutes dragged on for what seemed like an eternity, and then realized those words were coming from me.(Full Content Review for Parents also available)

Enthralling for preschoolers; much less so for anyone else.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 29, 2012
The Oogieloves play a lot like Teletubbies in Pee Wee's Playhouse and it looks to become a staple in many a small child's DVD collection and possibly a cult item in college dorm rooms.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
August 29, 2012
There are no villains in this movie but there's lots of suspense and problem solving involved in retrieving the balloons.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
August 29, 2012
Enduring this brainless kid's film is akin to witnessing the end of the world.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
August 29, 2012
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."
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 29, 2012
If you have preschoolers or fond memories of tots smiling at friendly costumed characters, you may find a soft spot for this gentle film ...
Full Review | Original Score: B

Nobody is mean in this movie. They talk very loud.
