horrendously bad

I watched this movie with the preconception that it probably wouldn't be good, but at least it would be fun, silly and visually interesting. It didn't even live up that low standard. The acting was absolutely terrible. I'm not sure why they cast that woman as someone French, but she couldn't fake an accent if her life depended on it. There were so many ethnic stereotypes that were performed by substandard actors that I was offended and groaning in pain every few minutes. The story barely even centered around this great inventor's skill as a scientist. They just road around in a train, boat or car to get everywhere. The visual effects and story were the bland Disney fare we're used to but without any spirit or energy. The only truly funny moments came near the end, but the ending killed any leftover smile you might have had.
