User Reviews

Great and emotional
18 July 2018 | by stevovicvukSee all my reviews

I watched many Disney movies and series, this was so good! It made my childhood better. I am sick of fake humor in some Disney series and movies, and all pathetics and so on. But, this was so emotional and good, I gave 9 stars because I don't like being scared hahaha. In general, in Hollywood there is a lot of junk but for me this was different, especially while watching from Europe, where we want to say for almost every movie "ah,American junk". For me this was different, sorry but this is my opinion, I respect other opinions. And it has also a good humor that wasn't forced and it is truly GOOD, no bad language, no saying bad about the others, no bad confrontations etc. A REAL CHILDREN MOVIE.
