Storyline

In Jasper National Park, the wolves, Kate and Humphrey, have known each other since puppyhood, but they are on the oppose ends of the Western Pack's social structure with Kate as the energetic Alpha daughter of the pack leader and Humphrey being the good humoured Omega. That social structure forces Kate to accept an arranged marriage with Garth of the Eastern Pack to unite the packs for peace, regardless of Humphrey's hopeless attraction for her. Before that union can occur, Kate and Humphrey are captured by the park's rangers and sent to an Idaho park as part of a wolf repopulation project. Mindful of her duties, Kate is determined to return to Jasper and Humphrey offers to help with the assistance of two odd geese. However, as this disparate pair struggle through the dangers to get home, a growing mutual appreciation of their talents and then a deeper love threatens to disastrously complicate everything if they make it back.

Goofs

The wolf packs in the movie are not structured the way real packs are. The movie packs have several alphas and omegas. In a real pack, there are two alphas, the alpha male and alpha female - they are the pack leaders and the pack's only breeding pair. The rest of the pack is made up of their siblings and offspring. There is only one omega - that is the name for the lowest-ranked wolf in the pack. (But of course, real wolves don't have arranged marriages either.) See more »

Quotes

Kate: I think it's about time you should learn how to hunt.
Humphrey: You know i'm not a hunter, but i got some pretty cool moves.
Kate: Oh really?
Humphrey: Yeah, really.
[playfully tackles her]
Humphrey: Ha ha! What did i tell ya?
Kate: To tell you the truth, i'm impressed.

Lovely Family animation movie
2 January 2011 | by (Planet Earth) – See all my reviews

Saw this lovely animation movie with family during my vacations. Had not heard much about it as there was not much TV promotions and publicity before the release, but was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of animation, character building, the story and many other aspects. For my family it turned out to be a perfect vacation movie. The soundtrack of the movie is also worth mentioning here. Referring to another review here criticizing the movie for beyond understandable reasons, I believe movies are made for having fun, and criticizing them for stupid reasons like this movie was inspired by whatever is nonsense, because at the end of the day most of the animation movies including by all top studios follow the fun, family, adventure, thrills, some moral/ethics at the end of the story themes and this one's no exception. We enjoyed it throughly until it lasted plan to buy the Blu Ray disc for the kids as they loved it as much.
