An amusing movie, with some really stupid moments.
28 April 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Stars: Whoopie Goldberg.

This attraction at Disney's California Adventure is a movie hosted by Whoopie Goldberg giving some Calfornia history. The movie has some interesting facts about what's happened in California, but I have to say, Whoopie ruined it. Not because of her acting or presence, but because of her role. She plays the spirit of California, and during each time period she comes and gives the people some hope. For me, that was a laughable thing, to have her play the state of California, but whatever. The first 20 minutes of this are a bunch of stories, and the last 5 are a musical montage of great people in California (including Ice Cube((?)). I recommend you see this if you are tired, because its pretty long and easy to sleep through.

My rating: ** 1/2 out of ****. 25 mins.
