Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Only teen bands have shorter life cycles than children's television characters, so it will be interesting to see how a generation reared on the Teletubbies reacts to their 1980s equivalents. Although 1960s luminaries Carole King and John Sebastian supply some tunes, there's not much in this for adults, and the animation seems tame compared to the computer-generated wizardry of today. Nevertheless, the film struck a chord with kids, spawning two sequels and a TV series.
