Newt's movie review

What a piece of uninspired drivel! With such incredible marketing and the bucks to back a blockbuster, I really expected something of substance. What I got was not the Real Thing and it certainly did not Add Life. Instead, I was left flat. Had Coke let loose the marketing drones in the studios perhaps we would have been treated to something other than The Pause That Didn't Refresh. Instead, they added vanilla to an already watered-down and luke warm script.

And had I known it was a musical, I wouldn't have watched it at all. They won't be teaching this part of the world to sing.

Ripley's movie review

I really liked this movie. It was very bubbly, a little on the sweet side even, and I found it refreshing that they managed to keep it real. The frogs kinda took away from an otherwise great mix (the polar bears were too busy?) but this movie would be great for parties. My only real complaint was that there wasn't enough Russian content.

Always recommended.
