Just a fantastic movie.
Without giving too much away, when an "accident" seems to name Po as the dragon warrior (much to the horror of Master Shifu (voiced perfectly by Dustin Hoffman) and the disappointment of Furious Five: Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Viper (Lucy Liu), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Crane (David Cross) and Monkey (Jackie Chan). Shifu must find a way to train him. One hilarious moment after another continues until Shifu recognizes Po's true driving force. This is just in time as the villain Tai Lung (Ian McShane), a snow leopard has returned as he believe is the true Dragon Warrior.
I can not recommend this movie enough. Certainly this is marketed for the kids but the whole family will enjoy it.
As for the dedication at the end it is for Nicole De Huff Nicole De Huff was the beautiful woman who played the wife of the battering husband in episode Underground Railroad. Her death was so tragic as she was so young and it was so unnecessary as it was such a simple mistake. she died after two doctors allegedly misdiagnosed her pneumonia, recognizing it only after it became untreatable.
She was also in CSI Miami and Monk. She was most known for her role in "Meet the Parents"
see her page here at IMDb http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0215015/
If you get a chance see this movie.
From the first minute you can not help but love "Mary and Joe". Mary is so fresh, young, full of life... Joe is so in love with her.. The casting of the two lovebirds is what makes this film so great and the story is so powerful. It makes you consider - how did the real "Mary and Joe" feel going thought everything leading up to that awesome night.
More than anything this movie really makes you think.. which is what I consider the ear mark of a great film.
