excruciating for anyone over the age of five.

Forget Saw, I'd argue this is the most freakishly disturbing outing of Cary Elwes career.

I am somewhat hesitant to attempt to describe this...peculiar concoction for fear of being accused of base mendacity.

Some of the words used are too adult for kids and the length of the movie is much too long.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

Enduring this brainless kid's film is akin to witnessing the end of the world.

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."

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

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