My wife and I had to decide between this and "Forever My Girl". It was the toss of a coin for her, but I really don't like anything country. We were both so glad we chose this one. Great story, drama, love story, funny all at one time. With the exception of Daisy Ridley, I had not heard of any of the actors. I was not that impressed with Ridley in Star Wars, and this movie is no exception. The other actors were great, especially the actor who played Thomas McGregor and the one who voiced Peter. The animation was so good we had a hard time telling the difference between animation and live action. There was also a mix of jokes that were obviously written for animation, others for live action and still others that would work for either. They were all mixed throughout the movie. All the music seemed to be original, great and fit with the action on the screen perfect. I hope this is not the last thing we see from this creative team.
