Animator Mark Flood credits this film with helping him achieve some of the success that he has had in his animation career - when looking up this film one day, he read that it had won a prize at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival, prompting him to take a look, and several months later, his film The Freak Next Door (2012) was accepted and screened at the festival after he submitted it upon reading about it.

[after swimming through the potion, the two transform and gain the ability to speak]
[realizing he can talk]
Whoa! What's that sound?
[stammering before realizing he can also talk]
Mmm. I believe we have acquired the power of speech, my voracious friend.
[slurping up potion]
I can talk. I can think.
Mmm, what a delicious beverage. Can you feel the power? Can you... taste it?

While I thought many aspects of the movie were OK, I was a little disturbed by the large amount of blood and death portrayed throughout the movie. It's fairly unusual as far as I can remember to see a main character suffer so graphically in a G rated film. I won't warn people away from it, but I wouldn't recommend it for younger children or those who are sensitive or scare easily. The songs are generally good, but if you're used to the Pixar trend of no singing, you may find it a little jarring. Alan Rickman does a lovely voice-over, but it was so soft at times I had a bit of a hard time hearing it. Other voices ranged from decent to non-offensive -- there were no other real standouts, although the little girl doing Stella was awfully cute. Overall I only give this a six because compared to many other fine children's animated tales, it really has very little to put it above any of the others.
