    I say this movie justified its existance with the “Kids In America” scene, as there is a certain amount of win and that scene had all of it!

    Congrats on your third video here; now I can add you to the TV Tropes page!

      TV tropes! Awesome sauce with a side of excellence!

      That scene is nice, but the movie’s saving grace will always be that damn fat kid in a cowboy hat crying! It gets me all the time!

    This review was kind of boring, actually.

    • Tedzey71

      Sorry I didn’t meet you expectations. Any suggestions?

        Please try and get a bit more volume. Your first review I had to give up on because I couldn’t hear what you were saying. In this one I could understand you, but only with an effort. The maximum volume was generally about a quarter of the sound system’s maximum, and, e.g., at 6:50 playing music behind your narration makes it even harder to understand.

        • Tedzey71

          That’s great! I’ve been in the process of playing with the input from an external microphone. This keeps the sounds like my dog barking and pesky relatives from getting in the way! When I sync it together, I put the volume at high so that I can tell which is louder than the other. Other people have done it the opposite in which they keep the volume low, but it’s a matter of trial and error for me.

          I love feedback! Makes me feel appreciated :D

        You spend a substantial amount of time talking about how this piece of nothing very much was nominated for an Oscar, then don’t talk about the film itself in any great detail. I haven’t seen it, but have no idea from your review whether it’s So Bad It’s Good, So Bad It’s Horrible, or just Meh.

        • Tedzey71

          Yeah, I’ll admit that my main point was to discuss why this film was even considered for an academy award. That’s how most of my review structures are, which is taking a specific point and running with it rather than give the conventional “intro-plot-consensus” route (some of them are, but they tend to be my less interesting ones).

    Watched the TV-show (didn´t even know there was a feature film)
    and while it
    LOOKED GOOD for a TV-show with a TV-show-budget
    the characters were annoyingly one-note,
    especially the parents.

    This was a decent film, and you summed it up nicely. I do give credit to the animation, as it was the first CGI animated film made with commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and software. As in, tools anyone can go to Best Buy and get. It also ends up in its own little world as a Nicktoon. To me, the worst CGI Nicktoon is Fanboy and Chum Chum. The characters are annoying pricks, the writing is inane, and the animation is an absolute joke. As a CGI show, it fails largely due to series like Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Transformers Prime pushing the boundaries of what can be done with TV-grade CGI.

    • Tedzey71

      I do remember enjoying the show more, since it’s in it’s element. On television, you can run on the learning curve with technology.

      And… I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this…but…

      I kind of like fanboy and chum chum-THERE!!! I said it!!!
