A terrific way to welcome the new millennium.

It was worth the wait.

Where else can you see Perlman's hair in such stunning details, find Donald Duck as a major character in a Bible story and experience the distinctive mixture of comfort and grandeur that Disney excels in creating?

more of a collection of musical shorts than a feature film. So, I'll review each short on its own.
