The characters were fun, the story is great, and the animation is beautiful; so what brings this movie down? why the music of course. I remember people hated the songs of last year's "Princess & the Frog" mostly because Alan Menken wasn't the one writing them, but to be truthful they were actually fun to watch and listen to. What does that have to do with this, well Alan Menken actually wrote the songs in this and for the most part the songs sucked. The only exceptions being "Mother Knows Best" both fun to watch and listen to, as well as "I've got a dream" which was mostly just fun to watch. I highly recommend watching this whether or not you have kids.
The verdict:Great film but poorly written music.
