Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
The animation is fairly unexciting though serviceable, and the overall mystification of class difference would probably have made Dickens shudder, but kids should find this tolerable enough.
Even as a cartoon poodle, Bette Midler stops the show.
Much cornball adventure ensues, punctuated by healthy helpings of singing, dancing and general merriment.
The film offers a fanciful, lush urban setting, unusual for Disney animated features, and a couple of good songs.
| Original Score: 3/4
Despite three screenwriters and 13 names credited for the story, the script quickly sinks into a predictable 'girl-meets-pet, girl-loses-pet, girl-and -pet-reunite' sap-trap.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Take the kids. Have fun.
