Animator Mark Flood had been looking forward to seeing this film, but was rushed to hospital in the early hours of the day of its UK release after suffering a stroke. After recovering a couple of months later, he did see the film at a local cinema and enjoyed it. See more »
The kangaroo in the movie is male, yet has a pouch. Only females have pouches in reality. See more »
It's OK. Nothing great. My little two year old likes it.
Seeing all of the right wingers here up in arms about the movie is what made me curious about it in the first place. I can't help but wonder if Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck said to go out and smear the name of this movie; It's gonna turn your kid into someone who cares about the environment and we can't be having that now! Next thing you know they'll be commies (some leap eh?) :)
Anyhow, back to reality. It's nothing great but I don't see the harm in watching a movie that presents a fantastical, hyperbolic tale of some of the harmful effects of what mankind does. I mean, if we're gonna have all of these war movies, may as well have an animals united movie. My boy has seen Bambi too, doesn't make us socialists. Watching Sci-Fi doesn't make people atheists either (even though heaven sounds like an eternal totalitarian socialist regime to me, but I digress). Gosh. People need to lighten up.
