    Take my word for it, or better yet go find out for yourself: Big Hero 6 is a treat.

    With a film this funny, exciting and visually stimulating, who cares if you know exactly what's going to happen next, and when.

    After "Frozen," Disney delivers a heart-melter. The sweet, witty main pairing focuses a potentially busy, derivative super-group tale. Stay for the sting: Big Hero 7 is practically a given.

    Without making a big deal out of it, Big Hero 6 features a shrewdly balanced and engaging group of male and female characters of various ethnic backgrounds. It'd be nice to live in a world where this wasn't worth a mention, but it is. And yet the movie belongs to the big guy.

    The most endearing character in Disney's animated superhero animated movie is a one-man Affordable Care Act. (Make that a one-robot ACA.)

    Big Hero 6 is easier to admire than to love. It veers from chipper to noisy to dark stretches where it grapples with adult-sized grief.

    Big Hero 6 even has a title that sounds like a product ordered off the takeout menu of the type of restaurant that recombines a few elements in many ways. That could work fine, if any of the ingredients were particularly flavorful.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie was amazing. I went and saw it on a whim, because I had nothing better to do. Now I pity the alternate-universe me that didn't see it. The movie had me laughing the entire way through, and I'll admit, I cried when Baymax "died". Expand

    This, in my opinion, one of the best animated movies of 2015. Let's see what this year will bring us next...

    Who doesn't love a good team-up flick? This movie was visually stunning, heartwarming and overall just really fricking cool. Did the fact thatWho doesn't love a good team-up flick? This movie was visually stunning, heartwarming and overall just really fricking cool. Did the fact that a 4 year-old behind my row gave a full length commentary detract from the film...pshhh, not at all! I digress.

    When people say a movie is "fun for the family", this is the kind of movie they are talking about. Disney animation is flawless as ever and the characters feel like a perfect blend of Toy Story and Spiderman, just like San Fransokyo.

    The story is one filled with sadness, but ultimately triumph and really at its core, friendship. People should stop saying time heals all wounds and really say friends and family heal all wounds. This leads me to the best friend anyone could ask for, Baymax! Anyone who knew anything about this movie knew Baymax was going to be the main draw and rightfully so. You find me someone who wouldn't love a giant marshmallow golden retriever nurse?!

    I'm a 28 year-old manchild and my 22 year old female cousin both truly enjoyed this flick, terrible parents aside. If you are looking for a movie to check out, give this one a go.
