Bands on the Run is a 2011 animated comedy adventure direct-to-DVD film directed by Charles Mason and based off the Silly Bandz line of toys. The film was produced by Elastic Productions and Perfect Weekend. It was also distributed by Entertainment One.


Five Silly Bandz (a flower, a rockstar, a lightbulb, a television and an airplane) fall off a delivery truck and have to find to their way to a toy store.

Why It Sucks

  1. This film is a rip-off of Toy Story.
  2. Horrendous, ugly and downright unfinished animation. The Silly Band characters look nothing like actual bands, and just look like random things with weird borders.
  3. Terrible sound effects and voice acting.
  4. The transitions are absolutely ridiculous and unpredictable.
  5. Non-existent and predictable plot.
  6. Copyrighted images appear throughout the film, due to the animation being outsourced from China. There is also a picture of Pikmin on a photo frame model, and mind if we tell you that the creators of this film did not have permission from Nintendo to sneak that image in??
  7. It permanently killed all plans for a movie franchise based on Silly Bandz.
  8. False Advertising: On the back of the DVD cover, you may see the screenshots (from the movie) were drawed, and you think it's from the movie, and you're wrong, it's not the screenshots from the movie, those are hand drawn screenshots that are not from the movie.
  9. It has no association with Silly Bandz whatsoever.
  10. Error: The baby in one scene is bigger than the shopping cart. The baby shouldn't be bigger than the cart.

The ONLY Redeeming Quality

  1. The concept art shown in the credits is okay. Sadly, it was executed poorly.
