Beautiful! Not perfect, but certainly entertaining
First - this is beautiful animation. Major kudos to the studio - it's impressive, especially the "sand" effects. Second - OMG, the voice cast!!! Chris Pine is perfect for Jack Frost, I had NO idea it was Alex Baldwin voicing North (Santa), and Hugh Jackman as the Aussie Easter Bunny cracked me up over and over. Add Jude Law as Pitch Black (the Boogey Man), who really made the character creepy and elegant, in the best tradition of a Disney villain. Excellent. I must say, even stuck in a theatre PACKED with children, very little distracted me from the screen. The film has moments of treacle, but kids tend to eat that up. There's plenty here for adults to enjoy (obviously, since the dad behind me refused to go out during the movie to get soda for his whiny son, who insisted that HE didn't want to miss any of the movie. Neither did your dad, kiddo!!). If you want to spend 1.5 hours being charmed and reminded of the days when you were a child and believed in magic, GO.
