    Agreed. I love Elf and think a lot of it had to do with the casting as much as the writing, but I find pretty much every other thing out there that's associated with Will Ferrell to be un-watchable. He's up there with Jim Carrey on my No-Longer-Funny Meter.

    What's so hard to get about it?

    And the bully scene was probably just a factual error.

    I don't mean "get it" as in understand it or anything, I mean "get it" as in appreciating or catching onto the humor of the movie.

    Megamind and Monsters Vs. Aliens. I'm anxious for the Nick series of MVA. And I really hope a sequel for Megamind. They're my favorites Dreamwork films.

    I kind of think Megamind is OVER-rated, but that could be just me.

    Trust me on this. In a world full of completely overused parody super heroes... getting to the point where they outnumbered the real super heroes, Megamind found the ONE angle that hasn't been exploited yet. I used to love super hero parodies, but everyone and their mother had one and it was all stuff we've seen done better in things like The Tick or Plastic Man or WHAT THE...!? or something. But to make a story about such a deluded villain that was convinced that he had to be a villain... that was the last smart thing you can do with superheroes that doesn't involve Deadpool, if you ask me.

    Nice,but I'm minorly annoyed that Nick made a series for Madagascar Penguins,but not Shrek. Shrek could have a lot of potential I believe.

    A Shrek cartoon series would just rehash the films. I think I've had enough of Shrek feeling sorry for himself. We got that in 4 movies and a Christmas special. Penguins of Madagascar focuses on secondary characters that were arguably more interesting than the main cast. Monsters Vs. Aliens is going to be something, though. They aren't making a sequel of that anytime soon, so a TV series is the best thing they can do with the characters. I certainly hope there's some merchandise. The MVA toys were notoriously hard to find.

    An American Tail: The Mystery Of The Night Monster:
    Ahh, The Last American Tail Movie, Which I'll Admit I Acutally Liked, The Plot Was Good, The Writing Was Decent, And The Animation Was Good, Just EVERYTHING I LIKED When I Was A Kid.
    The Troll In Central Park:
    I'll Admit For A Box Office Bomb, It Wasn't Really That BAD For A Movie, It's Not One Of Don Bluth's Best Films, That Goes To Land Before Time, But Yeah, This Movie Goes On My Liked Underrated Movies List.
    Monster Mash:
    I'll Admit For This One, I Only Had The Preview On An American Tail: The Mystery Of The Night Monster, I Watched It On Youtube Last Halloween, And Acually Liked It, It Was A Fun Movie, And An Underrated Gem That Will Never Be Forgetten To Me!!

    I love Don Bluth, but the stuff he had to make in the 90's made me sad.

    As far as Don Bluth goes, I think Rock-a-Doodle is horribly under-rated; I know a lot of people say it was one of his worst (nowhere near as bad as A Troll in Central Park for sure), but I actually think it was one of his better movies.

    Can I just say I hated the cat? I know he was a main character, but the only thing I really didn't like in that movie was the cat.

    Ha ha ha! I still like both movies though!
    I for one do not hate that movie. (Hello again men in white coats!)

    Hey, I've said it before, I LOVE Rock-a-Doodle. It was probably one of my most watched movies as a kid, probably right behind The Lion King. I haven't watched it in a while though. It's a pain to find on DVD...and the vhs tape I had is long gone.

    I love it too. I love all Don Bluth movies. I can't choose my favorite, but if I did it would either be All Dogs Go To Heaven or the Land Before Time.

    ParaNorman doesn't seem to be doing quite the business it should. The animation is stunning and it has a great message of tolerance. Some people claim it's too spooky for kids, but there are also creepy scenes in Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and many other classic animated features. It gets my vote for one of this year's most magnificent underrated films.

    I think that ParaNorman is getting....well what it deserves. It's a really fun movie,but it's getting good reviews and was the highest family film when it had opened, so I think it did pretty well. I liked it a lot, but I did prefer Coraline. (And no my Other Mother is not standing behind me with her buttons)
