Worst voice direction, ever!
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only thing that would have made this film worse would have been using CGI to make the animals mouths move. Listening to the horrible dialog performances was bad enough, without having to watch them speak as well.

After seeing the previews for most of Disney's live-action films, I'm convinced that we need to add an amendment to the Constitution banning Disney from making any more.

Sober writers might have been a plus, as well.

How can one studio make so many bad films--one after another. I mean, seriously, these things wreak.
