Storyline

In a place far, far away, illegal genetic experiment #626 is detected: Ruthless scientist Dr. Jumba Jookiba has created a strong, intelligent, nearly indestructible and aggressive being with only one known weakness: The high density of his body makes it impossible for the experiment to swim in water. The scientist is sentenced to jail by the Grand Council of the Galactic Federation. The experiment is supposed to be transported to a prison asteroid, yet manages to escape Captain Gantu, who was supposed to deliver him there. With a stolen police cruiser (the red one), the destructive being races towards a little and already doomed planet: Earth. Stranded on Hawaii, experiment #626 can't actually do much harm: water all around, no big cities and two well-equipped representatives of the Galactic Federation already following close behind to catch him again. But Dr. Jookiba and the Earth expert Pleakley never could have guessed that earth girl Lilo adopts the experiment as dog, gives him ... Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Goofs

The film shows, a few times, how Stitch absorbs or extends his bottom pair of arms. And it is not instantaneous. But in one scene Nani is telling David on the phone about how Stitch is scary, possibly an "evil koala". As she walks into the kitchen, Stitch's shadow falls on her from the refrigerator, with all four arms extended, and she drops the phone as she gasps and opens her eyes wide. The shot switches immediately to Stitch raiding the refrigerator, but he only has the top two arms extended. He has not had enough time to retract the middle arms, and has no reason to; besides, he is trying to carry off food, and the extra arms would have come in handy if Stitch had them extended.

Quotes

[first lines]
Grand Councilwoman: Read the charges.
Gantu: Doctor Jumba Jookiba, you stand before this council accused of illegal genetic experimentation!
Grand Councilwoman: How do you plead?
Jumba: Not guilty! My experiments are only theoretical, and completely within legal boundaries.
Grand Councilwoman: We believe you actually... created something.
Jumba: Created something? Hah! But that would be irresponsible and unethical. I would never, ever...
[Stitch is revealed]
Jumba: ...make... more than one.

Crazy Credits

One of the photos of Nani, Lilo, Stitch, et al. displayed at the end is a parody of (or tribute to) Norman Rockwell's painting "Freedom from Want," one of a set of four paintings inspired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt's January 6, 1941 address to Congress enumerating "Four Freedoms." See more »

Gets Better And Better As The Film Goes On
12 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty entertaining "kids" animated film. It was a little different in that there is some dramatic action you usually don't see in nice animated cartoons and you have heroes who aren't exactly good role models. However, as the film progresses, all those characters (small child, big sister and alien) all become nicer and more caring "people." There also is a good "no one is left behind" family message. You just have to be patient with the human kid and sister in the beginning.

I think the best feature of this film are the brilliant colors. This is a great visual movie. It's also nice to hear a kids movie these days with absolutely no profanity in it. (What a sad statement to have to make.)

In summary: one of the better modern-day animated films. Highly recommended.
