I'm not sure why people are giving it a bad review because it's a "rip off of trolls" (which I don't agree with at all), but what's wrong with making a lot of movies for kids that are entertaining & have a wonderful message?

Cute and engaging .

All in all it's a mostly pointless experience and a waste of 2 hours.

The story is boring and predictable.

The story itself is ok, and could make for a good movie, but unfortunately the movie is amazingly lackluster in every sense of the world and on every field: the songs are mostly dull and unmemorable (though some are better then others).

From time to time, it's colorful, fuzzy and exciting.

One of the Uglydolls Moxy (played by Kelly Clarkson) is excited every day that she'll get selected to finally leave for the big world where a child can love her, but nothing happens.

For me, this lack of care (or budget) for visuals is what hurt this movie the most, making the world unappealing and dull.

Also, the plot twist relating to him at the end was pointless.

At best, it'll be entertaining for them.

During the (slightly excessive) musical sequences, the backgrounds are typically black, with frequent white flashes and repetitive assets.

Boring from beginning to end.

there is pretty much no plot.

My girls also loved the movies, 5 and 7, both enjoyed it!

From the description, and given today's "social" climate, I was expecting some liberal propaganda.

The storyline was just too bland and unimaginative, and the entire character gallery was just rubbish.

A boring and wasting time to watch animation film!

The story was entertaining, I loved the characters, and I loved the songs.

But it's a cute movie and my kids enjoyed it.

6 and 8 year old were ready to leave 30 mins in.

It's a nice message, but it's such a boring delivery that the whole movie comes off as a waste of time.


I have seen this movie and I enjoyed it very much.

It's as basic, rote, predictable and cliche as they come, not to mention they steal vague plot points from better films, like the Toy Story series, Monsters University or The Lego Movie.

But nice animation and the funny characters make it an entertaining 90 minutes.

Some of the characters were also pointless.


The story, music and characters are a bore-fest.

I really wanted to enjoy this film given the all-star cast and message it portrayed to kids, but it was just boring and predictable...

Boring/Stupid .

I also really enjoyed it and combine that with the joy of watching my beautiful daughter have fun watching it and I'm going to bump up my rating.

Horrid, Hollow, and Boring .

The animation quality is good but has a really bland feeling to it.

Generic and boring .

From the description, and given today's "social" climate, I was expecting some socialist, left-wing propaganda.

One word: bad Worst movie of the century award gos to ugly dolls

The themes are obviously good for young children, and there are one or two funny jokes, but it's simply not worth it for a frequently unfunny, bland experience.

Even with the heavy handed morality tale, this was still a fun, enjoyable movie.

Probably one of the worst movies I watched

The visuals suck because the environments are bland & the character designs are horribly ugly.

It seems to be a fascinating place and a much more fun place to explore than the Institute of Perfection.

The colorful, mega happy thing is cliche and boring.

They were so boring that I had to frequently fast-forward because I couldn't stand it.

This movie is weird and boring.

But yeah, Ugly Dolls is a cute movie that's worth watching if you're in the mood for a cute uplifting kids movie with lots of songs.

Good theme but boring if you're over 7yrs old .

This is the stupid movie I ever seen first of all its kinda sad second its a waste of your time and money.

My 5 year old enjoyed it.

this is, no joke, the worst movie i've ever seen.

Yet, in removing the threats the plot became a little too boring as the adventure just devolved into sort of an elementary school education lesson.

Fortunately, the box office flop of this tiresome nonsense might finally give movie studios the message that we want daring, ORIGINAL concepts, instead of politically correct junk full of forgettable songs and bland characters.

What a snore.

Waste of money .

Even with the heavy handed morality tale, this was still a fun, enjoyable movie.

I can even say me as a adult really enjoyed it as it teaches us to embrace being different.

Animation was the only redeeming point because the music and story were completely boring and humorless.

Does this make it pointless?

It was one of the most boring, weird and and just plain stupid movies i have seen in a long while.

The songs sound like something done before, the characters don't develop except for some bad people who turn good, the message is too simplified, the story is boring.
