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 died, 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

Where did THIS lucky find come from??
30 June 2020 | by panicmoseSee all my reviews

I dug this up a little while back and now that I heard the great news that Netflix is adding it this month, I figured I'd leave my review. Despite its obscure release and generally insignificant existence, this movie was particularly impressive. The voice cast was perfect, animation nicely fluid and colorful with an entertaining story. Of course, there were the couple random scenes where you felt, 'What are they thinking?' Or 'Why didn't they just do this?' But all in all, it was a delightfully amusing film that I enjoyed watching (along with my nephews/niece ranging from 12 to 5 yrs). They thought the hamster bit was hilarious!
