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.

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."

Chazz Palminteri, Jaime Pressly, Cary Elwes, Christopher Lloyd and Cloris Leachman appear in brief roles, all looking slightly confused and vaguely embarrassed.

It's the latest from Teletubbies distributor Kenn Viselman, described in the film's promo material as a "marketing maverick." Sure, why not?
