The only thing that could make this worse is the addition of Barney.
Why are you jinxing this
They could end up adding every horrible kids character. Ever.

Oh no, a movie for little kids! Run for your life!

Seriously, what is wrong with you guys?
Did you even watch the trailer?

It's bad even for a kids movie.

The movie is supposedly to encourage children and parents dancing and singing. :eek:
Why?
Because it's an interactive movie :rolleyes:

im kind of inclined to agree. i mean, none of us are a part of the demographic this is directed at, so there's no reason to expect it to look good

the trailer is weird though. among the actual target audience, how many people really give a fuck that it's "from the marketing visionary who introduced us to teletubbies"?

hey, i wasn't actually horrified

although adding barney would be worse because adding barney to anything makes it worse

unless you make him a kill-able enemy in which case it makes anything more awesome

wow, that's actually pretty amazing

i guess the marketing visionary who introduced us to teletubbies wasn't so visionary after all
