  1. So, while I remember this movie fondly from when I was a kid…yeah, this movie apparently sucks. Didn’t realize it ’till now. And it’s not like I agree with all of your opinions (I love Independence Day for example), but WOW is this movie dumb and weird. I really don’t know how I enjoyed this as a kid.

  2. I just realized something. The aunts’ “WORK WORK WORK!” speech parallels to the Kirby Super Star sub-game “Revenge of Meta Knight”. If you recall, that sub-game was about Kirby stopping Meta Knight, who wanted to take over Dream Land and make them do serious work. Now listen to the first part, one of the aunts says “lollygagging in Dream Land when there’s so much work to do?”. I swear Meta Knight did that speech too.

    And also the Rhinos song was hilarious! Keep it up!

  3. Critic, how could u not like this movie? If U still like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline, then why not this movie? And Randy Newman is not bad either. You like Toy Story so like Newman. I like the animation on this movie but not much with the live-action and it was nominated for an Oscar for best fucking music.

  4. Another fun fact about this movie, it came out on April 12th, 1996. I was born on April 12th, 1996. The movie came out on the same day I was born.

  5. -I didn’t hated your Lets play it was funny
    -Bum is wright
    -This movie is crap its boring its stupid who thought it would be a good idea
    -That scene would ruin The Lion King
    -How did child service gave them the kid
    -Shit melody
    -James speech is not good at all
    -The rhino i can only think that its James fear of accepting that his parent are dead and left him alone it is the excuse for him why they are gone
    -Its fine that you don’t like it cause i don’t like it

  6. I liked the Let’s play lol. I don’t even know if I’ve ever watched this movie all the way through, it just kinda bored me as a kid.

    I liked this as a kid when I saw it. Watching it now… I don’t know what I was thinking. The stop-motion was alright, but the songs… hmmm. Really bland… which when a film is a musical, is not good.
