I think this is the best of the CGI Care Bears movies
22 May 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I will be honest in saying I do prefer the 80s Care Bears incarnations over the recent CGI-animated ones. But while I liked Oopsy Does It, had mixed views on Giving Festival and Care Bears to the Rescue and hated Journey to Joke-a-Lot, I found myself really enjoying Big Wish Movie. The dialogue is on the corny and saccharine side, and some of the character designs could have been more fluid and less bloated(even if not as problematic as Journey to Joke-a-Lot. However, the colours and backgrounds are full of vibrant colour, the score is whimsical and the songs are surprisingly good with the best being the hilarious Get a Lot and the touching I Wish. The story has heart, and is charming with good moralising. The characters are cute, and the voice work while not outstanding is solid. All in all, the best of the CGI Care Bears movies if not as good as the outings from the 80s. 8/10 Bethany Cox
