What on earth is an Oogielove?

Posted on August 29, 2012 

I don't have children and all my nieces and nephews are adults. My great-niece and great-nephew live in Charleston, S.C., so we don't see them very often.

I'm saying this because I have no idea what an Oogielove is.

I've been seeing the commercials on TV for the "Oogieloves: The Big Balloon Adventure." OK, I'm not just seeing the commercials. I'm seeing them incessantly.

And they were on "Good Morning America" this morning.

Apparently, the three main Oogieloves are Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie. I have no idea what sex they are, but I think one is in a dress. Maybe that's Zoozie? That's just a guess.

The cast is huge and there are some good actors. Like Chazz Palminteri, Cloris Leachman, Cary Elwes, Christopher Lloyd and Jaime Pressley. Singer Toni Braxton is also in the movie.

However, I've seen some reviews and people who have seen the movie absolutely say that it's really, really bad.

Will I go see it?

No.

But when it comes on HBO or Showtime, I'll probably watch it.

Let me know what you think if you go see it in the theaters this weekend.
