Really Funny and entertaining

One thing I need to correct is that Billy IS NOT Mandy's brother. He's her somewhat best friend. This show has always shocked me that it was never given a TV-PG rating (It was rated TV-Y7). The show is a bit disturbing and quite violent at times. Not to mention a few instances of adult content. Don't get me wrong, I used to love this show, but it was one of those shows that you didn't want to eat while watching. Snot drips from Billy's nose many times. But the show is hilarious. Not really recommended for children under 10.

Judging by CS's review, this is obviously a movie for the show's fans

If you loved the show, you will love this! It's just so funny! The plot was pretty cool too. I also love how Numbah 3 was to be Grim's replacement. I always knew she was evil. My only complaint is that it felt annoyingly long at times, longer than it should have been, and that's saying something as it really wasn't that long. All in all, it's a great film for Billy and Mandy fans, but if you're not a fan of the show, you may wanna skip this title.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (13 ):

Undeniably gross and just as undeniably funny, the movie is a guilty pleasure for kids mature enough to handle the action. Based on the TV series The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Billy And Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure provides surly Mandy and her goofily stupid brother Billy a feature-length vehicle in which to indulge their wacky friendship with the Grim Reaper.

This is certainly not a film for kids younger than 8. Though it will have an audience in fans of potty humor and the comically macabre, consider whether your child is mature enough to process it. As the Boogey Man observes, some of today's kids are so inured to violence and vulgarity in films that it may desensitize them to real fear.
