One-line Reviews (90)

We had high hopes for this because of the great reviews but it's proven to be quite boring.

It was also boring and I just kept waiting for it to be over.

And boring, too!

In Last Action Hero (1993) a fun superhero action movie has a real boy enters into the world of a fictional movie world and remains more compelling because of its reality-tinged depiction.

The thing I look for in movies, a good/ gripping story that makes sense and is interesting to me, actors who make it a believable journey and visual aesthetics.

WE took our 6 year old grand daughter and she fell asleep then I did.

The storyline in "Wonder Park" is a bit generic and predictable, for sure.

In one word: Boring...

For one thing the movie is predictable, all the symbolism, mystery, and potential twists are easily discernible and lacking the finesse and mind-blowing moments that the sister studio is famous for.

Sadly pretty soon into the film the annoying voices of the characters and cliche plot (start happy, go sad, stay sad, do some inspirations stuff, end happy).

A surprisingly enjoyable kids flick.

Any movie that can keep my 3 year olds attention is worth watching.

Then there is the story; predictable and uninspired.

While "Wonder Park" hardly is going to be an animated classic for me, it is definitely one that is worth watching at least once.

The score was bad, the cinematography was bland, the editing was bad.

DISLIKES:Predictable Too Simple Lacking Intense Suspense ShortSummary: As we have talked about, animation movies require a story to be very dynamic, fun, and have a sense of adventure that takes us out of our world.

Had trouble staying awake during this movie.

It was enjoyable and creative.

Bored to death!

June resolves to save the park, with predictable and increasingly tiresome mayhem-filled set pieces ensuing.

There were so many holes in the story, the writers spent zero time trying to make the audience connect with the characters and the "dilemmas" they created to try to add interest to the film were completely boring, ridiculous, and unimaginative.

The worst movie I have ever seen .

Worth watching with your kids.

But director Dylan Brown did manage to get this to be something enjoyable for old and young alike.

My wife and I were bored out of our minds!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

There is too much dialogue in the film which added to its blandness as well as some scenes that dragged on too long that were just there as filler.

June resolves to save the park, with predictable and increasingly tiresome mayhem-filled set pieces ensuing.

It's full of empty inspirations.

But all is not well in Wonderland, and it's not only because the park's name was presumably too evocative of Alice in Wonderland to provide the film's title (you'd think someone would have thought of that at some point during production).

Worth watching if you have nothing better to do and it's raining outside...

Some have said that the movie is boring.

Why do the kids admire June like nothing happened to their neighborhood in the beginning of the film?

But all is not well in Wonderland, and it's not only because the park's name was presumably too evocative of Alice in Wonderland to provide the film's title (you'd think someone would have thought of that at some point during production).

you can guess from there what is going to happen, it's pretty predicable from top to bottom, you know what will happen and it will end exactly like how you would imagine, it doesn't take any risks or become interesting since despite it's unnecessary PG rating, it's a safe piece of fluff, with a weak script and it felt so rushed with nothing a lot to take from it, that and the moral and it's theme is all over the place, however despite all that, the movie's execution isn't too bad, it makes up for it with decent comedy, scenes that are generally fun and exciting at times to watch and the first few minutes before June heads off to Wonderland, are properly the best parts of the movie, it's touching, funny, strong and it has a decent set up for the movie, however half way through it grinds to a halt and just becomes a perfectly watchable film, the writing may has not saved the movie with it's predictability, bland and generic elements to it, confusing and rushed, it does save it with it's heart, chuckleworthy comedy and the first thirty minutes being great, so in a way, it's Splendiferous!.

There is very little plot, and the whole movie doesn't really make much sense.

It's has been an entertaining experience for myself, every time I take my children to see a kids movie.

All the right elements are here for a great animated movie but the story is a bit contrived and feels awkward.

You see, as far back as January 2019, just a couple of months before it's official release, it was tagged with the ultra generic utterly boring title of "Amusement Park".

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed it

It's entertaining.

The story is a little thin for adults though, so I find it a little boring.

Found the characters to be kind of boring not really lovable, meaning i never really cared about them or laughed when something happened to them or said anything funny.

I was quite excited to see this film since I have been a lover of theme parks and theme park building games ever since I was little and I came in there expecting an entertaining, cheery, comedic ride and came out disappointed.

I read other reviews and hesitated on wether or not to take the kids (boys, 9 and 5) I wish I wouldn't have wasted $42 on sad and boring.

My son got bored and if I'm not there for him, then why am I.

Total waste of time and money!

Boring .

Now, stepping away from the confusion about the title of this film, you might also wonder why there is no credited Director on this film.

I took my two nieces to see this, ages 5-10 and they got bored halfway into the movie.

and like i said before the wonder park characters have boring personalities, story is bland and over used and the drama and fun action just dissipated.

It was entertaining and had a positive message.

No, it's not meant to appeal to adults wanting something fresh, but as far as kids movie it was engaging with a charm to it.

Yawn.

Fun Entertaining Movie For One Watch .

But like I say, on the whole, it was an entertaining and heartfelt film.

Entertaining for children .

, nothing special, just basic and doesn't stand out, but not a bad performance, the characters are a mixed bag, sometimes they have wonderful performances by great actors with some entertaining, relatable and likeable characters, on the other side, they are basic, nothing special, not very interesting all that much and are just stereotypicals.

I know it's a kid movie but this movie has no plot or story.

On the whole, this film was entertaining and engaging, and I found myself feeling a range of emotions throughout.

Entertaining and emotional .

Any older and I think they will be extremely bored.

I'd let you watch the paint dry but we wouldn't wanna get too exciting or dare I say......

I remember watching the trailer for this movie in the theaters many times and thinking this movie looked like a waste of time.

It starts off fun, a little girl and her mom imagining this theme park but the whole beginning was still contrived.

One of them (a porcupine) is in love with another (a warthog) but this is mentioned only once (to my knowledge, I did actually fall asleep for a while!

My wife fell asleep for most of it.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable movie for Children, so just let your imagination soar.

Waste of time and money .

A sweet movie, far deeper and more entertaining than the previews suggest.

I fell asleep for 20 minutes, my my wife fell asleep for 40.

It was very heavy emotional content for kids and the rest of the boring movie didn't make up for that fact.

I sat down to watch "Wonder Park" with my 9 year old son, and it turned out that this 2019 animated movie was actually enjoyable for the both of us.

Overall, Wonder Park was an entertaining movie to watch with the family.

Unexpected Gem .

In this case, I fell asleep 3 or 4 times.

What a bore .

My kids enjoyed it.

We even went to the 4:20 show thinking we got this but it was boring uneventful just plan full.

Take the kids, leave the theater, pick up the kids once the movie is over.

Save your money and check out Dumbo in a few weeks.

Boring.

Sad and boring throughout the majority of the film .

Dont waste your time and money .

Overall Wonder Park is fun, entertaining, and theme park derived, with its heart and playfulness in the right places.

It is filled with action, humor and heartfelt moments that make it enjoyable.

It is a whimsical place filled with exciting rides and attractions, such as a flying fish carousel and crazy roller coasters.

where adult men can also have a fascinating life both real and unreal on the big screen.

My kids went from sad to bored and back to sad, before ending with bored.

My 7 year old seems to enjoy it, but I'm reading reviews and playing words with friends because it's so boring.
