Has anyone seen it? I couldn't even find a piece on it at CT Movies.

It was a fine way to pass a few hours on a rainy Saturday, but I found the film--like most Dreamworks animation--thoroughly forgettable and not really that funny for anyone but pre-teen kids.
Great, cuz I'm off to it now, funny glasses and all, with my six year old Genesis.
Is she really SIX? It seems like only yesterday she was a baby and loved Story of the Weeping Camel.

This one has really grown on me over the years. I worked a temp job a year-and-a-half ago where it was on all the time, and I probably got used to the film a bit. My five and eight year old watched it tonight, I saw most of it yet again, and there are things in the story that I continue to find honorable.
I have found the film to be better without the 3-D, even as taken as I was with it in the last post. (This obviously came out shortly after Avatar, and these were probably the only two 3-D films I'd seen at the time.*)
Can't believe the thread is so small. There must be another one somewhere, but no "Ahem," and other than this, the search turned up zilch.
*Oh, I just realized that I also saw My Bloody Valentine 3-D about six weeks in front of seeing this. That one wasn't my fault, it was a favor to an exiting au pair, the same one (Bel) I saw Waste Land with three weeks ago.

Actually, this film came out about nine months before Avatar. I believe it was the first DreamWorks cartoon to be released in 3D.
FWIW, there are only two things I really remember about this movie: One, I liked Seth Rogen's character a lot; and two, the opening scene with the paddleball popping straight at the camera felt really gimmicky in the theatre, and it's even lamer when you see it on video (the kids at church watch this movie sometimes), in 2D.
