The Care Bears live in a faraway place up in the clouds called Care-a-Lot. They travel around the world on Missions in Caring, whilst evil villains such as Professor Coldheart and Lord No Heart, try to thwart their plans.
I am not a huge Care Bears fan, but I do love the TV show and the original movie, and enjoyed New Generation, Wonderland and Nutcracker, so I admit I was eager to see Oopsy Does It! I was a little dubious as well, because it was in CGI, not because I don't like CGI, but because Journey to Joke-a-Lot was in CGI and I disliked that movie personally. However I was surprised. The movie is not perfect, with too-short a length, corny dialogue and moments where the character designs lacked finesse(though not as bad as Journey to Joke-a-Lot). Despite the flaws, I found myself enjoying the movie. The animation is colourful and vibrant on the movie, and there is enough whimsy in the music to make it listenable. The basic plot is nothing new, but the heart and enthusiasm of the storytelling does help to overlook that. The care bears characters are infectious enough and generous in attitude, a little on the saccharine side perhaps(they always were but that was part of their charm) but not the wimpy and bullying characters of Journey to Joke-a-Lot. Grizzle was a decent villain, but I personally never found him scary in the way I found the book(from the original movie) and DarkHeart(from New Generation) scary. The voice acting is solid from all involved, especially Scott McNeil. All in all, not a great movie but a surprising one. 7/10 Bethany Cox
