It's a winner
26 May 2015 | by rshultz212See all my reviews

My determination of whether or not an animated movie made for children is a good movie is based on how much my children enjoy it. I'm not looking for a complicated, layered plot or cutting edge animation, or anything else that adults use to judge a movie. My 12 and 9 year old daughters liked it and my 8 year old son liked it a lot. They enjoyed the recognizable songs weaved into the plot. Today, with the internet, everybody wants to sound like an intelligent movie critic, or food critic, or travel critic... but to me the measure of quality of a product is simple: did the intended audience get value out of it (for entertainment, enjoyment vs cost)? In this case, definitely.
