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.

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

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.

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

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

Yawn.

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 a lot 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 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!.

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

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 .

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.

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

Any older and I think they will be extremely bored.

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).

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.

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

What a bore .

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

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

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

Had trouble staying awake during this movie.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

, 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.

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.

And boring, too!

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).

A bright, fast paced adventure with just enough imagination that you would hope to get from a child making up their own theme park.

It was enjoyable and creative.

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.

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

Sad and boring throughout the majority of the film .

Total waste of time and money!

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

Boring.

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

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

Dont waste your time and money .

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

In one word: Boring...

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