Really awful, but I don't know what I expected

Hey, remember all those movies from the late 2000s where a vintage cartoon character is suddenly in extra realistic CGI, now a side character to a live action drama about corporate business deals and/or a workaholic father who needs to spend time with his family? Well, we've got one of those for Woody Woodpecker now, and he now belches, farts, and makes Hip Cool jokes about "swiping left" and ringtones and songs that are his "jam". It's a movie from 2017 that feels like it's from 2008.

I wasn't exactly expecting Fargo or something, but why are CGI family movies almost always this terrible? This film barely counts as family material...Woody outright tries to murder people via such schemes including electrocution, gas explosions, and pouring wet cement into an occupied car. He also defecates on people, with one character (unknowingly) eagerly eating it. A character remarks that she "needs a Xanny" in response to a loud kid. Woody's driving force for being the harbinger of chaos is just, "I don't want an artsy house near my tree, so it's time to get some humans almost killed." Multiple subplots come and go; the only one I cared about was how the lawyer's son joins a band to both prove himself and to help out some friends at a talent show. You may ask, "I thought this movie was about land development and paternal bonding. What talent show?" Well, just wait until you have to climb through the other subplots involving a black market for stuffed birds, Woody's entire species being extinct, two brothers who are poachers, a forest ranger trying to catch said poachers, a house fire with improperly-placed blame, a sickly father-in-law, a Xanax-popping interior decorator and her flimsy marriage, and a guitar. The morning after I watched this movie, I had trace memories of it, and thought, "Wait, that was real? That was a thing that I really watched? And it came out in 2017?!" This film is disjointed, and definitely not kid-friendly.

I can't imagine being a Woody Woodpecker fan and seeing this; it reminds me a lot of the film "Furry Vengeance" from 2010, albeit now with a talking bird shoving his bug-eyed, CGI face in the camera "Son of the Mask" style. I give this a 3/10 because the kid playing the lawyer's son gave a really good performance, and the ending song was catchy. Otherwise, just run away from this. So many better children's/family movies have come out in the past decade, so this film both has no reason being so bad, AND you owe it to your kids to put on something better.

A train wreck, from start to finish. One of the worst movies based on a classic character I have ever seen.

I recently started watching the original "Woody Woodpecker" cartoons, and while I find the character somewhat annoying, he is more entertaining than this pile of trash. This movie has got to be one of the worst movies based on a cartoon character I've ever seen, point blank period.

While I was sick, I decided to watch this film on Netflix. Big mistake. The acting is downright terrible and Woody looks like a bad PlayStation 2 graphic from a video game. The jokes are horrendously unfunny and 90% of them rely on fart jokes and other bodily humor in the sad hopes of getting a laugh, and not a single one of them works; Not one!

Also, I should mention that Woody is barely in this movie. There are way too many scenes with the human actors instead, and when he does show up, he's there to tell jokes that aren't even remotely humorous or do something disgusting. Why would you even make a movie about a famous character from the 40's to 70's if he's not the main focus? The antagonists are the most generic and uninteresting excuses for villains you will ever see. They could've worked if the movie itself was completely animated, but they fall flat on their faces because they are just there to act stupid. That's it. Those are the entire traits to the characters of these villains. They are stupid, just for the sake of being stupid.

I know I already talked about the humor, but I feel the need to talk about it again. Really, what do you expect? The humor is nothing more than your typical, run of the mill PG-rated comedy. Like I said, it consists of fart jokes, burp jokes and other forms of toilet humor.

There is one scene in the middle of the movie where Woody encounters the villains for the umpteenth time, and then, proceeds to relieve himself on one of their ice cream cones. The villain who is dumber than his brother eats the ice cream that Woody's bodily fluid is on. Are you serious? Who, in the right mind, thought that would be good enough to be considered comedy? Not only was the scene lazy like the rest of the film, but it was vomit-inducing and revolting.

Overall, this has got to be the worst cartoon adaptation I've ever seen in my life, and also one of the worst movies I've seen. It's unfunny, infantile, ugly, pandering and horrid. It has no charm, love or heart put into it, whatsoever and it abuses the very character it's based on, to a point where it becomes unrecognizable. Please, I implore you; if you have kids, DO NOT, under any circumstances, show them this movie. They deserve a lot better than this.

Disappointing

As a fan of the cartoon, one of my favorites of all my life, I expected more for the first live-action version of the Woody Woodpecker. The result is a bit disappointing. Woody Woodpecker's first movie resulted in a silly, uninspired film with very poor acting. The good things are just the funny situations created by Woody and his characteristic laughter that animated my mornings in childhood and adolescence.
