Storyline

It's Schluufy's birthday, and the Oogieloves (Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie), along with their friends J. Edgar, Windy Window and Ruffy, are organizing a party. (Shh! It's a secret.) Everything is going along just perfectly until J. Edgar trips and loses the last five magical balloons in all of Lovelyloveville--OH NO! The Oogiloves set out to find the magical balloons in time to save their friend's party. Along the way, they meet some very interesting characters indeed, including Dotty Rounder (Cloris Leachman), Bobby Wobbly (Carey Elwes), Milky Marvin (Chazz Palminteri), Rosalie Rosebud (Toni Braxton) and Lola and Lero Sombero (Christopher Lloyd and Jaime Pressly). Can these new friends help them recover the magical balloons and get back to the cottage in time to celebrate Schluufy's surprise birthday? Written by Official site

Not to be seen by anyone older than 3.
4 December 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I do not understand the marketing decision to create the Oogieloves. This sort of thing clearly would interest very young children--with its bright colors, catchy music and deliriously happy characters. However, I cannot honestly see a child older than about 3 enjoying this in the least. So, it appears as if the target audience is 12 months to perhaps 36--a very, very narrow window indeed. So narrow that many parents wouldn't take their kids because who wants a film that ONLY kids this age would like? You couldn't bring the older sibs to the movie, as they'd be suicidal or would be bouncing off the walls throughout the movie. And, if your older child DOES like this, I question their sanity and maturity! As for everyone NOT in the target audience, you'll probably find the Oogieloves both annoying and incredibly creepy. Their faces are only barely animated--with their dead-like expressions and facial movements. And the music is clearly the sort of simplistic stuff that would annoy as well. The bottom line is that I can see NOTHING about this film that wouldn't turn off the viewer unless they are very, very young.

I am not giving a numerical score to this one. I don't have a tiny child to ask what they think and it's not fair to rate a film for tiny kids when I am an adult. But I am very annoyed with IMDb because they don't do a very good job of policing the reviews or numerical ratings. "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure" HAD a score of about 2.0 for several months and some group apparently bombed the site--flooding the film with 10s (why, I have no idea)--hence it's very respectable score of 7.5. Additionally, there are many positive reviews that clearly must have been put there by the filmmakers. You can tell since the reviewers have not reviewed any other films and their 'reviews' are made up of single-line blurbs--as if they were lifted from a press release! Unfortunately, I've seen this same sort of thing happen with a few other films--such as the reviews on "Just Another Romantic Wrestling Comedy". Someone is going to need to start policing these things or of what value would IMDb be if this get out of hand?!
