The Point Photos

Movie Info

The creatures who live in the Land of Point all have pointy features, except Oblio (Ringo Starr), whose circular head is unusual. Singled out because of his appearance, Oblio is exiled to the Pointless Forest. In the process, he learns that it doesn't matter what you look like -- it's who you are on the inside that counts. Narrated by former Beatle Ringo Starr and featuring music by late folk-rocker Harry Nilsson, this animated children's fable is about one of life's important lessons.

Critic Reviews for The Point

  • There may be better family films, but few that are more personal and less condescending to young people.

    April 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The Point is exceptional enough in its charm, its whimsy, its animated style, and its musical lyricism to draw favorable comparisons to The Beatles' classic Yellow Submarine as well as the earliest of the beloved Peanuts TV specials.

    February 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film's message about tolerance and self-affirmation should find an audience with today's youngsters.

    December 24, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5

Audience Reviews for The Point

    Good songs ("Me and My Arrow" repeats in my brain), sketchy stylized animation, and lots of characters without a point. A nice movie for children-of-hippies to sit down and enjoy.

    Definitely shows it age, but if you get caught up in this then you're missing "the point". I wouldn't say this is necessarily on the same level as Pixar for family movies, but my daughter certainly enjoyed it for its entertainment value, while I appreciated the soundtrack and theme.

    Wonderfuly animated, in the style of YELLOW SUBMARINE.
