Movie Review: Horrid Henry the Movie

horrid henry imageWe recently received a Phase 4 Films package with Horrid Henry The Movie, along with a Horrid Henry book, a hand buzzer, wind-up chattering teeth and a balloon kit.

My eldest daughter was thrilled to try the hand buzzer (which fortunately in my case didn’t do a whole lot since I was her first test case). The slime that came in the DVD case was a pretty impressive example of creative marketing. I will probably take it to my nephew over the summer along with our copy of the movie since I think he’ll love it.

As for the movie, my girls confirmed that Henry was truly a horrid boy until he did his best to save the very school that he unwittingly got shut down by his own bad actions. It’s definitely a movie for younger boys who will love the physical comedy and bad boy humor.


Horrid Henry Movie

Plot synopsis: When Henry fails yet again to hand in his homework for the umpteenth time, he inadvertently sets off an unexpected and curious chain of events. He forms an unlikely alliance with Moody Margaret, the infuriating girl next door, wins a talent contest, and stands up to his ultimate nemesis. With each antic crazier than the last, Henry finds himself inexplicably trying to save the very school which he has always professed to hate!
