The film's message about tolerance and self-affirmation should find an audience with today's youngsters.

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.
