For a movie company that has yet to do an animated feature, they did a very good job with this movie. My two boys laughed throughout the movie, as did I. There were a few places where the humor was aimed towards the adults and the kids didn't get it but that's no different than any other kid's movie these days,

The young ones found this film amusing enough. There were certainly enough pop culture references and valentines to sci-fi and 50s movies to engage adults. Still, overall, the film fell flat. The plot was cliched, hackneyed, contrived, and full of many holes. The characters were way over-caricatured. The animation was decent but certainly not world-class. In many ways, the film seemed to be a Target or Kohls version of an animated movie as compared to a Neiman Marcus. It had the feel of a much older technology (think "Antz") and just wasn't the sort of slick animation we've come to expect. It was all very bargain basement. when you can see this movie at the $1 at all times second-run venue (do they still exist), or buy it from the $5.99 bargain DVD bib, it's worth it. Otherwise, save your hard-earned dollars for something of higher caliber that begs to be seen on an actual move screen.
