AN ENTIRE MOVIE DEVOTED to CHARACTERS THAT LOOK LIKE THOSE HIDEOUS 1960s TROLL TOYS...and FEATURING MIA FARROW and the VOICES of MADONNA, SNOOP DOGG and JIMMY FALLON -- SOUND LIKE FUN to YOU? DIDN'T THINK SO! 

Troll #1: "Lookit me! I'm blowin' Fairy Dust out my ass!"

Why do I think this title will be a prediction of what I will find in the theater?? A man named Arthur, surrounded by hundreds of empty seats...

Oh no, is this one of those "human kid becomes a cartoon" kind of movies?  Been there, done that, and have never seen any of them!  Too embarrassing!

Madonna is getting raves across the board.

Response from Head RAZZberry: Mayhaps Madonna isn't getting her usual ripping reviews, but the film itself is hardly a hit with critics. Opening in limitied release in New York and LA, it is currently (9:35am/PST on 12-29-06) getting a troll-sized 20% Approval Rating at Rotten Tomatoes (LINK)...

I smell another "Swept Away" for Madonna - my brother is one of the few people who actually "rented" that movie (from the video store we both used to work at). At least he didn't pay to see it!  LOL!

I already mentioned in another thread about the 14% (and I predict falling fast) numbers at RT... Perhaps it might be even safe to say a Razzie nod will go with it???

This is like Lady in the water in which the problem is with the writer/director not with any of the actors really. Madonna is not the star and it can hardly be another Swept Away when she actually is not getting Swept Away reviews, though if some people just want to give Madonna a razzie nomination for existing like they did with Die Another Day or for some bizarre reason Truth or Dare there will be probably no stopping them.

I'm not sure if Madonna would get a Razzie nod for her performance this time...but the movie as a whole should get at least one...

And a different attitudinal aim, too.  The reason classic and Renaissance-era Disney films before 1970, Pixar films now and, to a lesser extent, Don Bluth's films, work so well is that they're not cynical, or aimed solely at the air-headed crowd (sure, they'd claim Shrek worked this way, but Shrek worked because it put a good basic story with a strong heart alongside its satirical bits).  The classics tell their stories honestly and with feeling, and t hope to get everyone to like them, not just the children and/or adolescents. Indeed, it seems to be a stereotype in this country that animation in general is only for the young, when most of the best animated material in our history is not so limited in its aims.
