Yes, the CGI is bad. The "Middle Eastern accents" are bad. The humor is bad and at times completely unnecessary (when Cammy and Butter Ball discuss regurgitation... YUCK! While a fact of life, was this important enough to put in the movie?!?!). And the premise of the movie? ... you guessed it, bad. For anyone put off by the supernatural storyline in Spooky Buddies, Treasure Buddies is no different as there is a curse involved and an evil cat bent on taking over the world (think Warner Brother's "Cats & Dogs" movies). Yes there are scary scenes because of whole storyline, but the amount of 'fright' really depends on your child's age and maturity level. There are also other mature themes like the sale of camels (ie: animal rights), and grave robbing. On the flip side, there are definitely cultural aspects present such as prayer and specific Egyptian foods - and your child will probably have questions about all of this as mine did. While the movie is G-rated, I'd say 5+ is a good range.
What really helped redeem the movie was the acting. Yes, I said acting! Edward Hermann (recognizible from reruns of The Gilmore Girls and on voiceover work on various programs on the Biography Channel as well as a slew of movies) and Richard Riehle (a character actor who played Santa Claus in the 'Search for Santa Paws' - the buddy-less direct to dvd Buddy movie). These two obviously enjoyed hamming it up and getting into their over the top 'old man adventurer' roles. Plus, they had more screen time than the Buddies! And I confess, I LOVE Uncle Babi! I know, I know - a monkey for comic relief is as old as that black and white Laurel and Hardy mummy movie, but this monkey offered up some decent gags. Who knew another Disney monkey could take on Aladdin's Abu???
The bonus features are basic: the "Roam" 'music video' (basically, karaoke for 2nd tier Disney Channel actors), B-Dog's episode of "cribs", and the ever present "upgrade to blu-ray" commercials. To wrap up, my six year old would probably give this five stars. So with my input, I'm settling with a solid 3.5 star rating.
Did I mention I **LOVE** Uncle Babi? ;)
Please understand, this movie is not SO TERRIBLY SCARY. There are some creepy scenes, especially with the naked cat, the snake, the bugs, the naked cat...oh did I already mention the naked cat? I think one problem is that my children enjoy the Air Bud and Buddies movies because they make them laugh (as silly as they may be). This movie does not make children laugh and it almost put mom and dad to sleep!
There is also an element of family bonding, love, and loyalty in the Air Bud movies that is missing in some of the Buddies movies. It makes quite a difference.
I'm giving this two stars instead of one because the description of one star is "I hate it". I don't hate this movie, but none of us have a desire to see it again. Therefore, the two stars which means "I don't like it".
Then there's the B Dawg edition. I thought that was pretty cool. Between him & Rosebud I'm not exactly sure who's more popular. They did the Rosebud edition in Spooky buddies.
I hope someday they do a Budderball edition or a Mudbud edition or even a Buddha edition. What I like about Budderball is his favorite saying when he sees something appetizing enough for him, he says Oh sweet mamma! That's what I like about him.
They didn't really find a girl pup for Rosebud in this movie, so the puppy is really actually a boy. If your paying close enough attention while watching the movie. The movies okay, but Disney never really has taken stuff like this too seriously or whoever it is that finds the animals for these movies. They need to though.
Don't worry folks I'm not trying to spoil the fun or nothing! Some girls who watch this movie at home may not always like what they see.
& the music in this movie? Its okay. No complaints there!
