The Star technically isn’t a great animated movie by any stretch but it is perfectly safe and unlike The Emoji Movie, did illicit a few laughs from me and never once came across as cynical, and the voice talents was pretty impressive while the animation, albeit nothing extraordinary, was passable.
Vacation might turn some off and the certainly the humor is off-color but for myself, it managed to surpass my exceptionally low expectations where I did manage to laugh more than a few times and tolerated characters who might annoy others. That said, this isn’t a good movie per se but a passable one that I probably would put on the same level as European Vacation and Vegas Vacation.
In spite of a truly funny beginning, Hell Baby does tend to wear out its welcome even though the ending is satisfactory enough. However, if you enjoyed “Reno 911” and “Children’s Hospital”, the comedic styles will definitely be up your ally and help get through some of duller and dumber moments.
