Critic Reviews

  1. The underwhelming, only fitfully amusing movie left me hungry for more.
  2. The animation is deft but the screenplay is stilted, the voice-performances are unimaginative, and the whole project is surprisingly clumsy in its efforts to please young and old alike. A major disappointment.

I would recommend this film for kids, but for adults, it would be alright but you'll probably forget it in a couple of days. Full Review »
