With such luminaries as Rick Moranis, Jamie Lee Curtis and Richard Dreyfuss, I expected something with a bit of style. Instead what we get is a shallow storyline, dreadful songs and poor animation.
* The storyline plods along, with no real cohesion and the final 'shocker' is a direct rip-off of a scene in Toy Story 2.
* The songs are atrocious, just stuck randomly in the story, and whoever told Rick Moranis that he could sing was obviously tone deaf.
* I know it's not feasible for everybody to match the Disney/Pixar animations stables, but they at least should be able to spot where bit's of the image just disappear.
My son. aged 2 1/2, loves this sort of thing, and if he likes a film will want to sit through it again and again (and again, ad infinitum :). Even he got bored halfway through and wandered of, which given his current love of deers is quite telling.
If you've already got Toy Story 2, just watch it again, if you haven't - buy it, it's far superior (in every way).
