Five 2nd-grade kids who don’t follow strict rules by their school principal Brinway are dubbed “Stinkers” by him. On the class visit to an aquarium the Stinkers decide that a sea lion called Slappy doesn’t feel too good there, “free” him, and plant him into Brinway’s hot-tub.

Film Review

This movie is the type of good clean adventure kids today need. Happy endings are rare these days and kids need to experience HAPPY !! A group of kids take on the responsibility of Slappy The Seal after being found mistreated. Again, I think children need to see more of this……the need for humans to have compassion and sympathy for others, and a desire to do the right thing. Soon Slappy becomes an integral part of their group and the movie depicts their adventures (imagine how hard it is to keep a seal from being discovered by your parents for example). Predictable, yes……a little thin plot-wise, yes, but sweet and lighthearted just the same.

Man. This movie has got it all. Cute kids. Fart jokes. A sea lion. What more do you need? I used to wonder if B.D. Wong had the chops to pull of a subtle comedy like this, and this movie proves he’s got what it takes. Jennifer Coolidge shows she’s more than just the dramatic actress so beloved in those Christopher Guest pseudo-documentaries and knocks this one out of the ballpark. That accent? Hilarious. Bronson Pinchot proves that he’s more than just a one-trick pony with his portrayal of Roy. You can barely even detect his Meposian accent. Wow! And without going into too much detail, I’ll just say that these kids worked great as a team. Move over, Li’l Rascals. There’s a new group of youngsters in Cute City. Why these kids didn’t get a series (Hello! "Slappy & the Stinkers: the Weekly Show") or at least a few MacDonald’s ads is beyond me. Whatever. Sometimes I don’t know what goes on in Hollywood to let talent like this slide. See this movie!

I cannot understand the critics of this film. It clearly has an unbelievable plot and all the characters are caricatures of goodies or baddies, inept adults and triumphant kids – but that is where the humour lies. From start to finish it stands in the old fashioned slap stick and manic situation comedy movie genre. The fact that you can see some of the jokes coming does not stop them being funny at the moment of delivery. There are some superb slap stick movie moments. Mayhem abounds. It is not meant to be taken seriously. It does not pretend to be great cinema. It is not cool or sophisticated comedy. Woody Allen would and could not have made it. It should be seen for what it is, a wonderful, old-fashioned, family comedy which makes us laugh again and again and which can be enjoyed by all ages. I grew up on Jerry Lee Lewis and St. Trinians. I loved it.
