Horrid Henry: The Movie

Synopsis: When Henry fails yet again to hand in his homework for the umpteenth time, he has no idea that this will set off a chain of events which will see him forming an unlikely alliance with Moody Margaret, the infuriating girl next door, and his irritating little brother Perfect Peter, outwitting corrupt School Inspectors and toppling an evil Headmaster, winning a talent contest and facing his ultimate nemesis with no way out - all because he is trying to save the very school which he has always professed to hate!

Down with the boys!

Girls rule! Girls are cool!

Down with the boys!

Girls rule! Girls are cool!

Down with the boys!

Singing Soraya.

Sour Susan.

- Guess who?

- Me!

And Moody Margaret,

my number one enemy.

Be honest, no, don't!

- You were going too fast.

- No, I wasn't.

- You were way too slow.

- I don't care!

What's wrong with you?

But I'm deputy head.

This isn't some kind of game.

This is a sophisticated club

and it's my club and I can do what I like.

I'm deputy head as I've already said.

Shouldn't be just like...

Aagh! Enemy attack!

Na-na-na, na na na!

Mission accomplished!

I hate you, Henry!


Homework, now!


Oh, hi, I'm Henry, and this is my world.

- Firstom, mydad.

- Henry!

He says the same thing to me every day.

Get up those stairs right now

and do your homework

or there'll be no more television for a week.

- Heard it before.

- A month.

- Oh, come on!

- A year.

No way!

Then there's my wormy little brother, Peter,

and his annoying cello.

Hey, Peter. It's not bad...

for a smelly nappy baby.

And then Mum says:

Don't be horrid, Henry!

So then I got to my room and do my homework.

Only joking.

Why'd I want to do my homework?

I'm way too busy.

Wha-ha! Rocking out!

Some day I'm gonna be a rock star.

# Got no time for homework

# Too busy being me

# Singing Zero Zombies

# Eating beans for tea

# Down with wormy worms

# That's what I decree

# I'm the king around here

# The all-time majesty

# They say that I am horrid

# But little do they know

# I'm really, really horrid

# And that's the way it goes

# I'm a hero, I'm a pirate

# Touching close with cool

# A Tyrannosaurus Rex

coming straight at you

# Come on

# Wanna croon it, croon it, croon it

# I just wanna do it

# I just wanna croon it

# Too cool, too cool, for school

# No no no no no

# I'm nobody's fool

# Too cool for school


Henry! Henry!

I said, get up.

I'm getting up, Mum.

Get up and get dressed!

I'm getting dressed, Mum.

Right. That's it.

You're going to make us all late.

I'm not gonna make us all late, Mum.

I've re-stocked the loo rolls,

cleaned my toothbrush holder,

dusted under the bath

and now I'm going to polish my shoes.

That's a good boy, Peter.


Go away, worm!

Aagh! Mum!

And don't forget your homework!


Shoo, Fluffy!

Ooh, there it is.

Oh, no!

Come on, Henry, get your coat on.

It's time for school!


Hey, guys, wait for me!


Look, those are Peter's little miends.

They love school and I really, really hate school.

Anyway, here goes.


That's Ralph.

Better known as Rude Ralph.

And that's Aerobic Al.

Brainy Brian.

And Bee Bert.

- I dunno.

I dunno!

With miends like these,

school's not all bad.

Together, we are The Purple Hand Gang.

Brian, I need a note.

I haven't got my homework.

- So what's new, Henry?

- OK.

Quiet in the classroom.

Settle down. Order in the classroom.

- Margaret?

- Here, Miss.


Yeah? Oh. Here, Miss Battle-Axe.

- Ralph?

- Here, Miss.

- Al?

- Here, Miss.

- Bert?

- Er... I dunno.


Here, Miss.


Oh, Weepy William.

Here, Miss.


Or Lazy Linda.

Here, Miss.


Horrid Henry.

Here, Miss.

Late mark.

Right, get out your homework.

Oh, please, Miss.

What is it, Henry?

I haven't got my homework, Miss.

Why am I not surprised, Henry?

Oh, I've got a note, Miss.

"Dear Miss B.

The cat ate Henry's homework again.

Bad cat.

Signed Henry's mum. "

Something tells me your mother

did not write this note, Henry.

What do you mean, Miss Battle-Axe?

And something tells me you did not write

this note, either, Henry.

How do you spell homework?

H- O-M-E...

Ooh, that's very good, Henry.

The next little bit might be a bit harder,

seeing as you've never done any.

How do you spell work?



R- K?

No, no, no, no.

W- O-R-K.

That is how you spell work.

And that's why I know

you did not write this note, Henry.

Because work is spelt correctly in this note

and I know you'd never be able

to spell it correctly.



Boudicca, I just wanted to remind you

the school inspectors will be here again today

and we don't want any more...


Of course not, Miss Oddbod.

(sigh of relie

Thank you, Boudicca.


where was I?

Oh, yes. Detention.

Single detention

for failing to do your homework.

Double detention

for failing to bring in your homework.

And triple detention for getting somebody else

to write this note

on your behalf about your homework.

- But...

- Silence!

H- O-M-E

W- O-R-K.


Now... is there anybody else

who failed to bring in their homework?


# It's not easy being me

# Wash your face and brush your hair

# Nag, nag, nag it's just not fair

# I'm Horrid Henry

# So tell me school

# Cannot rule

# When I'm king I'll do my thing

# And then my life would be so sweet

# I'm Horrid Henry

# Na na na

# Na na nay

# The Purple Hand Gang rules OK

# It's not easy being me

# I'm Horrid Henry

# Na na na, it's not fair

# Na na nay, I wasn't there

# Why do I get blamed for everything

# Cos I'm Horrid Henry?

# Na na na

# Na na nay

# The Purple Hand Gang rules OK

# It's not easy being me...

Two secs, guys, I'll let you in.

(hums to hersel


The school inspectors are here to see you,

Miss Oddbod.

Thank you, Sidmouth.


Without practice, we won't be ready
