Woody Woodpecker Goes to Camp 2024 Movie Review

I did not like the first movie Woody Woodpecker (2017), and thought it was an unfunny annoying at times kid’s movie that felt like they were just trying to capitalize on the nostalgia of the character Woody Woodpecker, which is why I was confused on why there was a sequel movie being released seven years later on the streaming service Netflix; after watching, I will say that this sequel was bad, but It was at least better than the first with it feeling like there was effort put into it. The sequel movie Woody Woodpecker Goes to Camp (2024) has a few entertaining moments, good CG 3D effects for Woody and other characters, the performances were good enough, and there were a few more funny moments in this than the first; the issues involve the by the numbers villain plot in finding gold at the camp, some immature humor that is expected for a movie like this, and random little moments that were not needed that could have been cut out of the scenes.

The main kid characters were not bad with ok performances, and each kid having their own quirk to them will help themselves and their side of the camp later in the film, but there are also other kids on the opposite side of the camp who are more aggressive and competitive who give an over-the-top performance; the camp counselor at Camp Woo Hoo is supportive and is trying to motivate her campers to believe in themselves to defeat the competition, while the counselor at Camp Hoo Rah is pushing his campers to defeat their opponents in intense ways. There is a whole thing going on in the story involving the founder of the camp, the gold he has hidden, and the feud between the two sides at the camp, though interesting, was just foreshadowing for upcoming events that involves how they find the gold and how to take care of a certain situation; this also just gives a reason for a side cartoon antagonist to come and try to sabotage things to get to it. Lastly, though one half of the camp had ok performances, and the other half had some over the top performances, they were likable enough and the interactions between them and Woody worked well with the CG.

The antagonist is a character named Buzz Buzzard, voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson, who is trying to trick one of the counselors into helping him find the gold hidden at camp, which is a straightforward plot, but it mostly involves him failing at getting rid of Woody Woodpecker who is trying to help the campers that can be occasionally funny; there is also Wally Walrus voiced by Tom Kenny who is the inspector who could shut the camp down if there are any more damages or safety violations. Woody Woodpecker has an occasional funny moment with the CGI 3D effects on him and the other characters looking believable and like they are in each scene interacting off the human characters; the movie was a bit funnier than the first with there being an occasional joke and fourth wall break that did work with also slightly funny visuals, but there were, for the most part, awkward jokes that do not work and could have been cut out entirely.

The sequel movie Woody Woodpecker Goes to Camp (2024) has a couple entertaining moments, good CG 3D effects for Woody and other characters, the performances were good enough, and there were a few more funny moments in this than the first; the issues involve the by the numbers villain plot in finding gold at the camp, and some awkward jokes and line of dialogue. Last thing I will say is that I thought this movie was going to be worse than the first, but it was not, but it still could have been better; you do not have to rush to Netflix to see this sequel, but for those who did not like the first movie, this is worth just one watch.
