    You failed to mention it made $260 million worldwide, hardly a failure. It’s silly to assume that ratings are based off how many parents pay for their children’s movie tickets to go see a semi-funny cgi or cartoon. I didnt need diplomas to know that. What even are ratings these days?? I wouldn’t pay $15-40 to see a kids movie in the theatres.
