The bird Belzoni never talks, but he is capable to communicate using show-bill. It's a nod for infamous Wile E. Coyote (Looney Tunes' character who prosecuted Road Runner), who either never talked but used show-bill to talk to camera. See more »

Considering the fact that this movie cost only ~9 million euros, Lightbox Animation Studios did a terrific job. Characters are developed with tremendous passion and the charm of Momia could rival even Pixar productions. The story is full of warmth and emotion, while the romance sub-plot has the right balance of superficiality and drama. There is not much depth, but it's expected for an U rated movie.
However, while the main characters are animated with love, the environment feels too empty and unpopulated. Even though the car chase scenes take place in the middle of the day, there are barely any visual dynamics in the background, e.g. people. At times, the movement of distant objects/characters looked quite wonky and unrealistic, breaking the immersion of the scenes.
Overall, Tad 2 is a decent movie for the younger audience.
