    Great movie for TODDLERS! My daughter loved the interaction with the singing and dancing! I'm very surprised that this movie wasn't advertised more on television! (It would of brought in more toddlers and their parents!) Overall, I would give this movie a "thumbs up," for toddler age group. There is no way a toddler wouldn't enjoy this movie. It kept my 4 year old daughter's attention from start to end.

    Oogieloves?? What are they? Who are they? I have no idea, but they sure are cute, at least you will think so once you see this movie from the British guy who was in charge of the Teletubbies. This is just a step or two above the Teletubbies who don't really speak but just squeak and squeal loudly when anything nice happens. The Oogiloves do talk and they do go on a real journey, this time to save their friend's birthday party which has lost five balloons. It's kind of funny but totally endearing to see what lengths the Oogieloves will go to to save the balloons, and they're really cute in the way they approach the world. I think my kid brother definitely liked it a lot and even I thought it could have been a lot worse than it really was. As long as you check your expectations at the door and know that you're entering the movie world of very small kids, you should be fine. No need to be cynical when it's not meant for you in the first place.

    So this film is strictly for preschoolers and if you have older children I advice you to take them to a different film. I made a mistake of taking my 6 year old to see this film and it was hell for both of us. He was bored to death and I was very frustrated because I paid money to see this film and I also wasted my precious time. Nothing really happens in this film, there are no villains, no conflict and the characters are ridiculous, boring and they all speak extremely loud. I honestly do not know why they released this in the theaters and why they released it nationwide.

    Yup, not for grown ups, even those who think that Chazz Palminteri or Cloris Leachman will lend their brand of acid tongued humor to the proceedings. Your first clue that this is not a movie for anyone over the age of five is the fact that the main characters are called "oogieloves" a sort of hybrid between the fact that they are strange looking and yet utterly adorable and eager to love each other and everyone under the sun. They're sort of like the Care Bears, except without any of the animated charm - and even Grumpy Bear was a grouch at least! These three Oogiloves (who I really couldn't tell apart except by color) go off on an adventure to find their friends birthday balloons which have blown away. As they search for the balloons, they come in contact with a curious array of grown ups who show them that friendship is really about more than gifts, parties, and balloons. All in all, you should only go if you really really love your kids and you need a loud nap.

    I have two little cousins and couple of young nephews and I decided to take them all to see a film. Oh boy, I forgot how hard it is to deal with young children and I had my hands full. Anyway, this was the only film suitable for their age and it looked like it will be fun to watch, well i was wrong about that. The film was extremely dumb and I realize it is for children but does it have to be this stupid, don’t we want to teach children and give them some useful knowledge? All the characters in this film talk extremely loud and there are no villains, therefore there is no real conflict so the film is extremely boring and my little friends lost interest in first 10 minutes. Overall, if you have children in your life I suggest you take them to a different film.

    An overdose of cuteness! There's no other way for me to characterize this movie than to simply say that it's a cupcake wrapped in honey and dipped in cinnamon and powdered sugar with a cherry on top and drizzled in caramel sauce! It's just waaaaay too sweet, so sweet it could give you diabetes if you dared to watch it twice. Everything and every one in this movie is so nice and kind and gentle and saccharine that you kind of hope an evil villain will show up half way through and kill off one of the Oogiloves (yeah, I know, I'm dark) or that their quest will end in failure, but nothing of the sort happens. Instead we have a bunch of cutesy puppets that remind me of the Fry Kids from McDonald's chasing after five balloons that make you wonder why they're so obsessed with the darn balloons. Surely their friend will care more about them than the balloons? I guess not. Strictly for the kiddies.

    Okay, call me a sucker and a half but I really enjoyed this movie more than I should have (I think!). Yea, I'm a sucker for cutesy pie kiddie stuff (hey, I love my PBS) so I was totally down for this rollicking romp through the imagination of a four year old. The Oogieloves are a group of friends (I cant decipher what kind of creatures they are, they're sort of a hybrid of Fraggle Rock and the Teletubbies if you ask me) who are in search of five magical balloons that they need to make their friend's birthday party a special success. The fun of the whole movie is really what you experience watching the little kids watching the screen. Their eyes just light up and they seem so enamored by all the sounds and colors that you cannot help but feel the same way. Yea, you probably won't like it on your own, but f you do see it in a theater full of little kids and you aren't moved by their excitement, you must be made of stone!

    Oh dear god help us all! If you think this movie is anything like other family movies this summer like "Brave" or "ParaNorman", think again! This movie is totally just for babies and those who think like babies. If you're at all mature or like your movies with even a hint of intelligence, then you better skip this one. To be fair, I know it's not made for grown ups, it's strictly for the Sesame Street crowd and the parents who have to sit through Playhouse Disney every day with their toddlers. But I do think that the filmmakers know that kids can't see this movie without parents taking them to it so they should have at least tried to make it somewhat entertaining for adults. Movies like the Rugrats movie or The Wild Thronberrys were good in their own way and which both kids and adults could enjoy. But this Oogiloves movie is almost as unwatchable as the Pokemon movies. Yikes!

    This is a wonderful, darling little movie for tykes and toddlers and their parents. I admit it's not for anyone over the age of five, but given how many movies these days are made for the older set of kids, it's nice to have one that's just for the ones that are barely learning to talk and understand what a movie is. I took my toddler niece to see the film and she was totally enraptured the entire time, her eyes were literally open the whole time I was afraid she might have forgotten how to blink! The whole movie is about the Oogieloves (who are kind of like the Teletubbies) on a madcap adventure to get a balloon for their friend's birthday. It's pretty simple stuff but the adult stars in the movie (including Toni Braxton and Cloris Leachman) seem to be having a blast and obviously love to regale kids with their antics. The colors are amazingly gorgeous and that alone will keep kids entertained.
