Quotes

[last lines]
Narrator: And so, as it turned out, the dinosaurs traveled from green spot to green spot eating their fill. Each finding a way to help others find what they needed. Each learning the special kind of joy, which comes from giving to others. And in the years to come, this story of sharing was told over and over again until it became known as the time of the great giving.

best movie ever
23 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is the best movie ever. i love the dinosaur, Hip (he is the cutest bully <3) "When You're Big" is the best song it's to the point, great for a sing along, and even somewhat obnoxious. what more in a groovy tune could you possibly need?? the movie, i of course bought the soundtrack me that Ms. Britney Spears. u cant gulp and slurp and swig. i also loved Standing Tough sung by Daddy Tops, it was just such a powerful song, it just made me wanna jump around the room and holler I'm tough.(after watching ck, and shared it with all my friends who just simply adored it as much as i did!) Back to the movie: it was about the dinosaurs running out of water in the great valley. it also shows how Littlefoot and the gang deal with big kids (aka bullies.)(i know, i know, yes its so awful, but don't worry, they make it into the perfect movie for the family or for just relaxing at home with your root beer and sunflower seeds)
