We had the chance to see this movie in the theater before it came out
on DVD (it had a limited theatrical run the month before it was
released). We weren't sure what to expect, but I have to say that we
loved it! The movie is bright, colorful and FUN! The animation is
surprisingly good, and the voice acting top-notch. Usually, movies for
younger kids can drag, but this one moved along at a perfect pace,
keeping all the kids in the audience enthralled. And I was pleasantly
surprised at how FUNNY it was, keeping the adults entertained, too.
Patrick Warburton as the Caboose is hilarious and Hudson the sock
monkey is now one of my favorite animated characters! The filmmakers
really did a nice job of making sure all ages can enjoy this.
I also love the fact that this movie was done in conjunction with the Starlight Children's Foundation. Part of the proceeds from the ticket sales went to benefit that charity... and 50 cents from the sale of every DVD and digital download also go to help them. So not only are you purchasing a great movie, but you're also helping a good cause. And the theme of this movie is not only perfect for the children who benefit from the Starlight Foundation, but for kids everywhere: "I think I can!"
All in all, if you have young kids, or are a kid-at-heart, this is a must watch! It's a beautifully made, POSITIVE movie with a great message and entertaining characters. I hope they make toys to go along with this!! :)
