I knew nothing about this movie when I picked it, which I did only because it has animals, which my 7 year old daughter loves. It was a bit offbeat, but also quite fun, with great animation (much more attractive than most computer-generated movies made for kids) and surprisingly catchy songs (far better than the saccharine numbers in most straight-to-video fare). The voice cast was excellent also, including Rob Reiner, Sid Caesar, and Chaka Khan (!) Even my 11 year old son, who considers himself way above kid movies like this, got caught up watching it. We all enjoyed it. And I appreciated the message, about being true to your friends and yourself, and I liked the "around-the-world" aspect, because the animals visited several locales that my kids don't know much about. It gets harder and harder to find movies we can watch together as a family, but this one fits the bill very nicely.
