I'd like to kindly thank the filmmakers for creating a movie that's what the first movie should have looked and felt like. This movie's even an improvement over the second book (which spends WAY too much time on the painfully boring love triangle). Solid acting, directing, and writing--this one's got it all.
A cute animated film with a warmhearted message. The film doesn't tie its plot together as neatly as Tangled or Wreck-It Ralph, but it's still a fun experience. And it's got the catchiest music in a Disney film in a long time.
This movie's just all over the place. Unnecessary subsplots, big logic gaps, occasionally janky editing, and oddly juxtaposed humor make this movie feel severely flawed. Easily the biggest letdown I've had at the movie theatres in a very, very long time.
