Storyline

Owen Huntington's life is one continuous loop of work, eat, and sleep. A loop that keeps him from ever seeing his wife Zoe, or his three year old daughter MacKenzie. A loop that is sure to kill him. Then, one day, Owen discovers a long lost Uncle passed away - and left his Circus to Owen. What could have been a blessing - soon unfolds into a curse. The circus is broke. The animals are all gone. And most of the crew are too old to be of any use. It's a disaster. But something magical happens. Owen discovers Buffalo Bob's secret. A box of Animal Crackers that gives the bearer the ability to become any animal in the box. Suddenly - there's hope. If Owen can use the box to become these animals and perform people will come. He'll be rich. But Owen forgot one thing. Buffalo Bob had a brother. Horatio P. Huntington. Owner of the largest chain of circuses in the world. And Horatio would stop at nothing to get his hands on the Magical Animal Crackers. Written by Scott Christian Sava

Disappointing..
29 August 2018 | by BatmanFunReviews2018See all my reviews

A family must use a magical box of Animal Crackers to save a run-down circus from being taken over by their evil uncle Horatio P. Huntington. Animal Crackers has an amazing and talented cast of actors such as Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Ian McKellen, Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito and Tara Strong and yet somehow? it fails to deliver actually. The characters were very boring, the storyline was really dull and the overall animation although good? It seems like the director does not understand what the word "animation" truly means. (3/10)
