Horrid Henry--The Movie (U)


Horrid Henry finds himself doing things he never ever thought he'd do, and then some.

The critical consensus

Nick Moore’s 3D film is perfectly pleasant once it gets the fart jokes out of its system, but the trouble with this horrid Henry is that he’s not nearly horrid enough.

**(*)(*)(*)Alison Rowat, The Herald, 28/07/2011

Shrill, over-eager and frankly disappointing.

**(*)(*)(*)David Gritten, The Telegraph, 28/07/2011

Not big and not clever.

James O'Brien, Daily Mail, 29/07/2011

Young fans will be tickled by the pantomime-style performances.

Paul Greenwood, Evening Times, 28/07/2011

A cheap, cheerless and laugh-free disaster zone with a woeful script and performances you'd expect to see in a school play. Horrid.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Daily Record, 29/07/2011

Kids will enjoy the gobby tween attitude and energy, but the paper-thin plot and extraneous 3D antics don’t provide the solid laughs of, say, Diary Of A Wimpy Kid.

***(*)(*)Kate Stables, Total Film, 29/07/2011

Do you get the picture? If not, keep it that way.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 29/07/2011

The one bright note is Anjelica Huston as Miss Battleaxe.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 29/07/2011

The results of a PR brainstorming inquiry into What Kids Like, rather than a coherent story.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)The Scotsman, 30/07/2011

Parents who draw the short straw might be stuck with Horrid Henry: The Movie, a live-action travesty.
