The Best
30 July 2001 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen, forget that it's a cartoon. It was wonderful, and nothing other than animation could have captured this story so well. Some things have to be cartoons, and this is one of them, it doesn't make it bad, it makes it good. This is something that anyone could watch, and I could watch this movie again and again.
