not bad
21 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

there have been a few bad comments on this movie so far so here is something different, i enjoy the animated films and have been let down by some of the new ones as i think they are losing the plot and kids don't get them (everybody knows that more animated films are directed more to the adults and seems like they are forgetting the kids) This movie to me brings brings back the best a movie that both kids and adults will enjoy, it is funny from start to finish with jokes that kids will understand but adults can laugh at with a story line that will keep you entertained from the first scene to the last , i was not expecting much from this title but i got bored so i watched it and i am so glad i did its a keeper, im not going into detail as i will give story away but my advice is watch this or let the kids watch it either way you will be pleased.
