Boring and absolutely horribly written

This is quite literally the worst movie I have ever seen. Fifth graders could have written it. The idea is good, but the execution is terrible. The storyline was difficult to follow because it didn't make any sense at all. There's a weird, evil snake, lots of name-calling, strange gender stereotypes, a short song inside a crocodile that is super out of place. Don't waste your time.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

With poor animation, a shoddy plot, and dialogue that relies too heavily on gender stereotypes, FROG KINGDOM is a tough sell. The idea is admirable: To avoid being married off to whichever male suitor wins the Froglympics, Princess Froglegs disguises herself as a boy and beats the other competitors at their own game. But a large part of the movie is the frogs insulting each other and a serpent cutting in on their action, so any positive messages are buried in the aggressive competition and bullying. Parents looking for nontraditional princess fare can find better examples that don't muddle the message.
