Who the hell knew they were making a live action version of “The Fairly Oddparents”? This must have slipped under our radar, because there’s no way we would have let something this horrendous go unnoticed. Apparently, there is a film in production and it stars Jason Alexander and Cheryl Hines as the title characters. Over at Frederator, they posted a photo of both actors in hair and make up as Cosmo and Wanda and it’s, it’s,……just look for yourself…
Hines sort of has the fairy face down but Alexander just looks like an Oompa-Loompa.
The movie is entitled, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow up Timmy Turner and besides Alexander and Hines stars Drake Bell as Timmy. In the film he’s no longer a kid but a twenty-something who still lives at home with his parents and is still in the 5th grade (if Jack and Billy Madison can do it why not him?). According to the rules, when kids grow up they lose their fairy godparents, a stipulation that comes to ahead when Timmy falls in love and starts having adult feelings for nerd-turned-goddess, Tootie (Daniella Monet).
The film is said to be a straight to TV movie for the Nickelodeon scheduled to air sometime in 2011.
What do you think of your first look at the live action versions of The Fairly OddParents?
