Goofs

At the Disney Brother's Studio, animator Hugh Harman says: ¡Ándale! ¡Ándale! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba! (which would become Speedy Gonzales' signature expression), hinting that he had originated the phrase and would later use it for the character of Speedy when Harman left Disney to work for Warner Bros. However, the originator of the expression was voice actor Mel Blanc. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the opening credits, we are told that the story is "based on the book by Timothy Susanin, forward by Diane Disney Miller." It's supposed to be "foreword," not "forward." This error is one of the most common in English and does not speak highly of the technical team's literacy level. See more »

So much potential..
26 March 2017 | by husby-91See all my reviews

After watching this movie, I have very mixed feelings. A part of me loved the movie for its story and the atmosphere. The other part of me is disappointed because I don't feel like it fulfilled its true potential. Many of the characters felt shallow and without depth, and the actors were just acting. There wasn't too much feeling in their performances, and the dialogue never felt natural or relaxed.

But to be honest, I'd easily watch it again. I don't know why, I just didn't think it was THAT bad. Many people put a lot of hours and hard work behind this movie, the least I can do is try to appreciate it for what it is and see the positive sides of it.
