Great inventive quirky funny movie for all ages

I'm 50 years old and went to this movie with my 14 year old and 18 year old, and we all loved it. It's got a creative sense of humor refreshing in these days of tired animated movies that mostly...

Great movie, even if it is really a 1 hour and 40 minute commercial.

By Alex_Devas17
For the most part, this movie was hilarious. A lot of current pop culture jokes, which can get kinda stale, but a lot of the voice acting is hilarious. I saw this movie because I find Chris Pratt...
