Is there a conspiracy against this film
17 October 2003 | by jimcantwellSee all my reviews

I found it incredible that 7% of those who rated this film gave it a "1". This is an adorable animation with a positive message for all who watch it. The dialogue is clever and uplifting and the characters are excellent. The music is beautiful. This is a movie that can be enjoyed by adults as well as children. My three year old was terrified by the nasty rats. Isn't it nice to have an alternative to the exact same rehashed characters (who look and act like cartoon versions of "Friends' actors") portrayed by Disney and Dreamworks in all their animations? Don't listen to those who gave this animation a low score; it is a beautiful film for all.
