SCREW THE AMAZON REVIEW!!!
on 11 August 2003
Okay, now that I have that anger somewhat out of my system... Contrary to what some ill-educated, closed-minded people may believe, this movie was not simply a ploy to encourage people to buy Care Bears and/or Care Bear Cousins merchandise. Like the story books and the television series, this movie was -- and continues to be -- a way to encourage children to share their feelings and to help other people out, and not to contribute to the cruelty that is still overwhelmingly present today. Just as other TV series have made appearances on the big screen, so did the Care Bears. The movie was made to bring joy to those caring people who did and do like the Care Bears.
Artistically, I would give this movie a 4. The animation is great for the time when it was made, the songs are well done (I especially enjoy that the songs are sung by people who aren't 'professionals'), and the characters' voices are fitting. The story line is typical of the Care Bears -- not too interesting to people over the age of about 7, but more than enough to keep younger children enthralled for hours on end.
