If you know what is good for you, you will not tell your daughters or nieces that this movie exists.

I can accurately predict that I will NEVER watch this movie.

My daughters tried to watch this on cable one day, but I turned the tv off and forced them out the door until it was all over.  I'd rather sit through a 8 hour Smurfs marathon.

Every day is a rainbow day indeed.  Seems the 80s couldn't pump out enough happy fodder for little young ladies.  My wife was obsessed with the Care Bears and still partially is obsessed with them.  We have two movies somewhere in the house, Andrew you might have inpsired me to eventually take them on.

Andrew,

Your video clip took 6 months off my life. 
I still remember that damned song they sing!
AHHHH!!   Buggedout

Unfortunately, I can say that I've seen this horrid piece of animation.

Quite unfortunately, I watched this for the review one night while the kids were up.  Jenna continues to ask us if she can watch it again.  Katie has repeatedly told me that she might use that as grounds for divorce.  Like anyone else is going to marry a woman with three children, one of whom is a Rainbow Brite addict.

Ash, it is funny that you mention death when you talk about the video clip.  Mofo Rising yelled at me for the short clip from the theme song when he did the proofreading.  Let me quote him:

Quote from: Mofo Rising

Listen, you have to put a warning before you unleash something like that.



We also had a short discussion about the type of drug user who would suffer the most from the film.  I originally used a PCP user, but changed it to LSD, because I think more people would understand.  However, the more I think about it, the more I think that exposing someone who is under the effect of PCP to "Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer" would be the best way to achieve complete annihilation of the senses and destroy their soul.

Oh, and our previous discussion about this hideous film:

Don't know what it says about me but as a young boy, I watched not only this but also Care Bears, Care Bear Cousins, Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony. If it had anything magical in it, I found myself drawn to it.

Okay, that clip was enough for me.

I have a few less brain cells now.

If I were to ever see this movie, I would probobly hate it too, but keep in mind that ITS MEANT FOR 4 YEAR OLD GIRLS and NOT targeted toward ANY of us here on the board. It's probobly AMAZING for little girls. .........and maybe for 15 year old girls who for some reason still watch care bears.

Ok, so I finally watched the video clip.

I really did not know that a person was capable of bleeding from their eyes, nose and ears...at the same time. Seriously, I think I'm suffering from the mother of all brain hemorrhages. I need medical attention ASAP. Oh, the drooling, facial ticks, muscle spasms and sudden onset of Tourette Syndrome can wait. I need to have C***S***ER!!! my head looked at A**F*CE!!! and soon.

That's very true, but I'm sure I speak for several of the other parents here when I say that generally I try to avoid bringing movies like this home because I feel they insult kids' intelligence.  There's so much in the way of good fantasy available for kids, there's no need to waste money, time, and brain damage on crap like this!  It's a vehicle to sell more crappy plastic toys, just like the heinous My Little Pony movies.

How can anyone not like this movie?  It's got robots, lizard monsters, the (near) end of the world, and the annoying valley girl even buys it at the end!  Hell, the boy even gets to shoot somebody with his rainbow gun.  (Whether it actually killed him or just froze him for awhile is open to discussion.)

As far as 80s animated features based on Saturday morning cartoons go, this falls well short of TransFormers: The Movie but can stand up there with the GoBots/Rock Lords movie and is probably equal to G.I. Joe: The Movie.

When you get down to it, the evil princess should have been killed by a headshot by a Marine Scout/Sniper, as mentioned in the review.

Films like this are painful to me.  The thing is, I couldn't skull it, because completely screwing with it was pretty fun (talking about the dog eating the boy, the Scout/Sniper, locking a PCP addict in a room with this film, etc.).

Shadow, you should try watching eighty minutes of that.  I have lesions on my brain that have given me a very rare form of Tourette's.  Sufferers (LIKE, OMG, PONIES!) are known for (PRETTY! PRETTY!) strange outbursts that lack cursing, but (I WANT TO RUN BAREFOOT THROUGH BUTTERCUPS!) are also disturbing.
