The computer effects are pretty good, and the Labou is likable, but the movie doesn’t seem to really be about the Labou as much as the the people buying the swamp for oil. This one looks to be some good family fun if it gets released and from what i saw it certainly should. There is very little action. The kids liked it. A father and son repeatedly argue. The film takes me back to the days when countless timeless films came out of the Hollywood 80’s heyday. I really wanted to see this movie because of the hype I’d heard that it was funny and it was worth the wait, definitely go see Labou when it comes out! How old is your kid?

Pirates, mythical creatures, a strong environmental message and children who have to save the day are all elements in this direct-to-DVD production. Barnie Duncan as Captain LeRouge. Thank you for your support. I saw Labou recently at Power Morphicon and it was really cute, something i could take my 7 year old munchkin to see without having to worry at all, thats not to say I didn’t enjoy it myself, I thought it was very funny, with a good plot as well.

Labou Movie Review and Ratings by Kids

The kids get lost, consequently meeting a strange creature called the Labou and an oddball relative to the Pirate La Rouge. The acting is unrealistic. Great comedic father and son duo and from what I can gather the Mayor in the ratiny is the real mayor of New Orleans.

This page was last edited on 24 Decemberat The film has an interesting mixture of fantasy and adventure that is reminiscent of the some of the classic kids movies of the 80’s like Goonies and ET – The Extraterrestrial.

Is it OK for kids to read books outside their reading levels? Don’t like this movie at all. A box of doughnuts makes the kids in the movie go nutty.
