Fabulous Movie
30 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was, along with "An American Tail" the two favourite animated movies I had ever seen, until it all changed with Toy Story, Shreck, Monsters Inc, Nemo, and all those other new ones. I love the humour in it, and the story line is like out on one of those good ol'e Disney Movies.

I was not to sure in the start of the movie, as there is some singing in it to, and lets be honest here, Rodney Dangerfield does not have the bes voice in the world, The jokes used in the movie might be a little old, at least some of them, but all in all its good jokes.

The quality of the animations in more or less Disney I would say, and I would not say it can match "An American Tail" as that movie is excellent with regards to colours used in the sunset scenes.

The story line rings a bell, and do remind me of another movie, but I am not sure which one, its maybe even a couple of other movies it may remind you of, but it does have its part of sadness, and happiness, love and hate, as a good movie should
