Oh, brother!  I usually try to find something positive.  This time I’m trying really hard to find something.   If you have a 7 or 8 year old boy, maybe younger, they might enjoy this.  Girls might like the cuddly animals, probably not.   I knew going in this was going to be bad, and truthfully it’s not as awful as I expected, but it’s pretty bad, just the same.  As I said, the kids might enjoy the slapstick humor and childish pratfalls, but it’s probably going to be pretty annoying to adults, unless you’re in a really happy mood (Think chemical alteration).

The stories are all the same.    Nice guy who moves to a new home, and the family hates it.  He works for a stupid jerk boss who makes him do things that are wrong.  He ends up standing up to his boss, and fighting for the right thing to try to win back the family.   But this is not only the story line of many other movies, but several tv sitcom episodes.  (Remember the Brady bunch movie where Mrs Brady is out picketing the house that Mike has architected).  In this case, as the title suggests, they’re going to tear down the forest and the animals all object.

Then, of course, there’s Ken Jeong.  This poor guy is the Korean dude in every show anymore.  He’s the guy in the trunk in Hangover, and the Asian Spanish teacher on TV in Community, and just about every other movie made in the last few years!  In this one, he is the evil boss, but doesn’t do much with it.  He’s not really bad, and he’s not redeemable, and he’s not very funny.  Probably the script, but this annoying wise ass character that he gets in every movie is not

Then to make matters worse, in the DVD they have the nerve to put a special feature about how nobody will notice the fake animals if we scream a lot and shoot it close up and spray the junk all over his face (skunk).   Throw in some bird poop and you’ve got a cheap movie.   Actually Brendan Fraser has a much funnier line in the special feature than he has in the movie.  “Think how much dough in CGI they saved on that one”

Brooke, dear Brooke.  Nice to see you again, but trust me, you were better off back in TV.   Sorry.   And be forewarned.   Even the gag reel is not funny!

    The wife rented this while the in-laws were over because it would be kid friendly with all the little ones running around. My 4 1/2 year old daughter thought some of it was funny, but I couldn’t even bring myself to watch it. I am not a big fan of Brendan Fraser anyway, but this one was pretty bad. I’m talking “Cabin Boy” bad…

    I haven’t seen it, but nothing is “Cabin Boy” bad!

    Well, in defense of the reader “talking” Cabin Boy bad isn’t “exactly” Cabin Boy bad, but it’s approaching that! And he was right on. This is a really bad movie!
