It's shallow and kind of dumb, and the animation is routine, and the story isn't much, and the stakes are a lot higher these days in the featurelength animation game.

We're Back is an exercise in endurance -- not only is it dull, but it has such an overwhelming sense of sweetness that it threatens to become nauseating.

If creating a non-offensive movie filled with sweet dinosaurs who have had a lot of time on their hands and not much to do is a measure of success, then the movie accomplishes what it set out to do.

Mercifully, this feature is only about 80 minutes long. It probably won't frighten kids, but it might bore them instead.

The screenplay, by John Patrick Shanley, who won an Oscar for his "Moonstruck" script, panders to the kiddie audience and is weak and plodding.

It's vividly animated, it's friendly -- and it's not too long.

In spite of narrative problems... the film's chief appeal is its central conceit -- that giant monsters... can be transformed into [ceatures] who like to play with children.
