    I would just go watch the original Woody Woodpecker over the live action movie. I know there could be fans of the original cartoons that did like the movie (if there are any), but they should have made the movie animated instead of make it a live action botch up. Really, how can Woody have his voice recorded with a microphone that has been off putting or something? Did the recording studio in the United States have no room for other microphone quality sounding or something? I don't know.
    Never will I watch this one again, ever. I do not bother seeing it at all costs since it's pretty bad. One of the few things I can praise is "Surfin' Bird", and that's one thing I can love about the movie version of Woody Woodpecker. If live action movies based off cartoons did work, then why not look at Paddington? Okay, I get that Paddington was based on books, It did have cartoon adaptations for TV from the 1970s-1990s. If Paddington succeeded at this, then why can't the others succeed or try to impress with critics?
    Plus, the fart jokes are just getting old. They were partially funny, and they had been funny before. But now that years went by, they have just become disgusting and really annoying and obnoxiously tedious.

    The moment you realize that Sonic's movie design is a bit too close to Woody's design. I mean, the white colored chest, the white hands in place of gloves.

      ​@Melissa Cooper In some shots, they look okay but again, it's from the angle you're looking at, otherwise it gets a bit off-putting.

    "And yes, that is Lassie from Psych."
    You do know that his name is Timothy Omundson, right? And the character that he played in Psych was named Carol Lassiter, not Lassie. Lassie was just a nickname that Shawn gave him in the show. Also, a side-note but while on the topic of Psych, I just now realized that this is actually the second thing that Timothy Omundson has been in with a character named Woody (at least that I know of). First there was Woody the doctor from Psych and then Woody Woodpecker.

    Of all the things Brazilians are obsessed with ; farts , ass , the master system , and now THIS ? I suppose brazil has loved woody wood pecker for a while but why woody wood pecker ? Does he appeal to that specific demographic

  • Hemon Payne

    What, did they record all the audio for Woody in the 40's and then make a movie around it almost 70 years later?

  • Lucian Fair Astaroth

    We Brazilians accept your apology. This only came to cinemas because there's networks that still show Woody woodpecker. Constantly.
    It's a memorable show

    That they don't let us forget.

    They seriously took a movie about WOODY WOODPECKER, one of the wackiest cartoon characters in the history of animation, and stuck him in a shitty live-action/animated movie with one of the blandest plots known to cinema?! They seriously could have used any wild and outlandish plot, and they went with THIS? And where the fuck is Wally Walrus and Buzz Buzzard? >:(

  • Cartoon Critique

    PLEASE tell me this movie bombed in Brazil! -__-
    5:15 What the FUCK did they do to my favorite character?! This is worse than Yogi Bear twerking to that damn "Big Butts" song! >____<
    8:35 This is the kind of crazy bullshit you end up with when you try explaining the cartoonish antics of cartoon characters in the Real World after you deviate from the tried-true Roger Rabbit/Space Jam formula!
    11:15 Woody should join with Garfield, Yogi, and the Smurfs to start up a support group.
    13:52 Woody, you're too wacky to be having an emotional moment. STOP IT!! What would the Yo-Yo Dodo, Daffy Duck, and the Aracuan bird say?!
    15:48 Okay, I gotta give Critic some credit for that one. That was funny! XD
    Ironically enough, I do actually like the scenes where Woody is causing chaos; with a better plot and no live-action cast, I probably could found this movie thoroughly enjoyable.

    Yeah woody woodpecker is one of the few cartoons that still air in tv to this day here in brasil we kind of have a soft spot for him i just think they taught they would earn more money premiering it here and to be fair the portuguese dub was actually pretty good (Even though it took a while to get used to) and overall was somewhat enjoyable (Minus the potty jokes) im not saying you should love it im just giving my view as a brasilian boy
