    Talking with Dinosaurs?

    The theatrical version of 'Walking with Dinosaurs' is simply unwatchable. After only ten minutes I wanted to use the mute button. If you thought one voice-over can be distracting when it's all over the place, imagine three or four annoying voices giving you the most unfunny and dumbest lines in movie history.
