It's refreshing to see the dogs not talk like in the animated film. Glenn Close was well-casted as Cruella De Ville, even though she can be real over-the-top. But what killed the film from being decent is the Home Alone-esque slapsticks and animal antics, including the skunk, hence it was written by the once talented John Hughes.

This is even worse than the last film with its contrived script. I find it weird that it's directed by Kevin Lima, who directed A Goofy Movie, Tarzan, and the brilliant and underrated Enchanted.

The plot is real stupid and illogically written. It also has dozens of pointless cameos. And why did Robert de Niro as Fearless Leader have to parody his own line from Taxi Driver? He's also one of the producers of this movie. Despite being generally a good actor, his acting is one of the worst in this movie.

I first watched that movie during junior high and liked it. But I don't anymore after watching the Tim Burton Batman films and the Chris Nolan reboot, Batman Begins. I saw them like about a year before the reboot came out.

This is the worst piece of shit I have ever seen!

I did like it at first, though. But when I read the critics' reviews of it, I was like, "What's wrong with it?" and "Back off!" The more I think about, the more I realize that maybe they're not complete fools. And that's what made me be more careful of which movies I see.

This is nothing more than a stupid dogshit propaganda that shows us cats are evil, but dogs are good. And not to mention that I'm a cat lover. To make things worse, there is not one single cat character that is actually good. The film's tagline, "Who Will You Root For?", I'd root for neither, even though I like cats. Why? Cats and Dogs should be created equal rather than be black and white. There's also loads of pop culture references.

Aside from a few good music numbers, the script was weak, bloated, and has filler music numbers. The main villain is such a whiney pussy. Plus, the Child Catcher is a 10x more interesting baddie.

If the film was like the first five minutes or being like a pseudo-documentary with no dialogue, but a stronger story, it would have been something good. I was really into dinosaurs when I was young and I still do.

A dull film that wasn't even good for a theatrical release to begin with, as it was originally going to be direct-to-video.

It's nothing more than a rehash of the first film. The poor logic is all over the place. Although there were some funny moments, and even Tim Curry has gotten some good lines.

Although Home Alone 4 is worse on the technical level, but this installment annoyed me more. It's basically just a sequel in name only. Even it did have a different title, the movie would suck. This is the debut film by one the worst directors ever, Raja Gosnell. The film is tonally inconsistent, as the first act plays like a rejected Die Hard script, while the rest of the movie is just a slapstick comedy with unfunny jokes, obnoxious one-liners, bad comic timing, and a very grating parrot. Plus, the terrorists became from smart to stupid and gets their asses handed by an eight year old.

What's sad to me is that Scarlett Johansson, one of my favorite actresses and crushes, is in this movie. But it's more like of a thankless role. And even Roger Ebert gave this movie three stars and said it's better than the first two. That goes down as one of my biggest disagreements with him.

Giving the Grinch a backstory on why he hates Christmas and Who's was forced and unnecessary. But aside from that, it's a serious guilty pleasure, mostly because of Jim Carrey.

I remember Nickelodeon were advertising this film like crazy. But it wasn't really worth the hype. The main character is neither funny or likable, and the plot was weak.

I liked watching this movie many times when I was a kid. But as an adult, it's mostly just a special effects extravaganza with thin plot and character development. I even remember when my older sister got a board game based on the film's for her birthday, I was scared that when she and her friends played it. I thought animals were gonna pop out of nowhere. So I went to a room and locked the door and stay there until it was over. I can't believe that I felt for such hocus pocus then.

This movie is a great example of false advertising. It makes us assume that the kangaroo will talk throughout the movie, but he talked during the dream sequence and the very end. And it's not even family appropriate due to violence, drinking, and some sex references. The camel fart scene, even if it was rated PG-13, would be too dumb for that kind of rating.

Space Jam was bad, but not as terrible compared to this. The Looney Tunes are still not funny, and neither are the live-action actors. There's forced obvious pop culture references, pointless cameos, and even blatant product placements (i.e. Wal-Mart). The film's plot and writing is so stupid and nonsensical, like it was written by a ten year old. I'm glad this movie bombed at the box office, unlike Space Jam. Why should it? It's stupid.

This movie is downright painful and annoying. And not to mention that the end credits goes on for 15 minutes after 65 minutes into the film, just to fill it up. Although to be honest, I did not sit through the entire credits, as the movie was already bad enough. But I just wanted to put it there for the heck of it.

The young Jack Black does bring mild enjoyment, though. But this movie is a disgrace to the original film. And what about the scene where the Rock Biter (or Rock Chewer) sings "Born to be Wild"?

I can't believe I didn't watch the first movie while growing up. It wasn't until like about high school when I finally saw it.

I remember seeing a preview on the VHS tape of Once Upon a Forest. Once it was on at Cartoon Network, I checked it out for curiosity, and I even fell asleep when I first saw it. It was that dull and boring. The preview was even misleading, as I thought it would be an epic fantasy adventure.

The animation is nice, and had some decent music numbers. But the story was weak and preachy. And not to mention that the film really pales in comparison to far better Disney films like Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King.

When I first saw that movie in theatres, I thought it was like one of the best movies I've seen in my life, and I even cried near the end. I heard that the Japanese version was better and made more sense (but not great).

All right, I don't even like the TV show, even though I grew up watching it as a kid.

Anyways, this movie isn't funny or charming. The plot is dumb and contrived. It does have some dramatic moments, though. But that hardly saves the film. And certain bad situations happens just for writing convenience. It also has bland and pointless music numbers. Oh, and don't even get me started on Angelica Pickle's grating cover of Blondie's "One Way or Another".

Ah yes, another film directed by the great Raja Gosnell (sarcasm). It has Scrappy Doo as the main culprit, which was very lame. The characters are so one-dimensional. The jokes are stupid and some are even inappropriate in a film that caters to children. And there's some scenes that are just mean-spirited.

It's pretty stupid to make the snowplow man the villain, even though he's just doing his job. The film is also plagued by subplots. Even the Blockblister version from The Amanda Show was better. Much better.
