Storyline

In Jasper National Park, the wolves, Kate and Humphrey, have known each other since puppyhood, but they are on the oppose ends of the Western Pack's social structure with Kate as the energetic Alpha daughter of the pack leader and Humphrey being the good humoured Omega. That social structure forces Kate to accept an arranged marriage with Garth of the Eastern Pack to unite the packs for peace, regardless of Humphrey's hopeless attraction for her. Before that union can occur, Kate and Humphrey are captured by the park's rangers and sent to an Idaho park as part of a wolf repopulation project. Mindful of her duties, Kate is determined to return to Jasper and Humphrey offers to help with the assistance of two odd geese. However, as this disparate pair struggle through the dangers to get home, a growing mutual appreciation of their talents and then a deeper love threatens to disastrously complicate everything if they make it back.

Is not the beginning nor the end of animated movies
1 January 2011 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This movie is nothing more than decent. If you have a chance watch it with the little ones and you will enjoy it even more. I didn't but it's obvious that its charm comes from the affect it creates with children. And while it might feel cheesy to grown-ups and would not have a chance to stand against any Pixar movie (maybe against cars, come to think of it), it still is a nice little movie.

The central story is pretty simple and even if I told you it would not be a real spoiler (I won't do it though). You will see where this is going, but hopefully have the fun this offers you along the ride. Anything but flawless, but a nice movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
