Just what you'd expect, and then some!
24 November 2017 | by bree_twsSee all my reviews

Went with the family...my 10 and 7 year old loved it! And so did my husband and I. It was just what you want in a movie like this...laugh out loud moments, excitement, and a great reminder about Jesus. It was surprisingly moving for a cartoon, as well. I heard a lady behind me in the theater say that she actually cried! Great fun!
