Quotes

Kate: What the hell are you doing?
Griffin Keyes: I was cartwheeling.
Kate: What?
Griffin Keyes: Oh, you said... You said eagles mate for life.
Kate: Yes.
Griffin Keyes: Well, when an eagle finds its perfect mate, they cartwheel, right? That's what they do. They... they lock their talons together, and they spin out of control, and just before they hit the ground... they break apart. The only difference between me and an eagle is... I will hit the ground, as you've just seen.

Much better movie then a lot of reviewers give it credit...
29 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After reading some of the unfair reviews this film has received I felt compelled to add my two cents. Yes it's a formula film, yes we've all seen it before, yes you can see the plot coming a mile away.

Honestly, I expected to hate this film... I'm not a big fan of the lead and I normally do not like these types of films, but 30 minutes in I was won over (maybe it was all the animals). This is a light-hearted family film and should be taken for what it is. If you have kids, they will absolutely love it.

The big name actors voicing the animals was a pleasant surprise and the animal animation and "acting" was very believable.

A very enjoyable film.
