pleasant fluff
10 October 2008 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to believe that this could be anyone's favorite movie. It is a pleasant simplistic comedy that seems to be aimed at about a 12 year old audience. Everybody is a stereotype. The good guys (and gals) are good and the bad guys are bad. Truth and justice triumph. Ho hum. Pass me another peanut butter and fluff sandwich.

The only somewhat more adult and interesting touches are the occasional glimpses into Shinto ritual, and a scene where the male lead tells of his wife's passing due to cancer. Otherwise it's a well made Disney movie that could have been quite a hit for Disney maybe 30 years ago.
