A Warm and Genuinely Entertaining Family Movie.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The story, albeit implausible, was well crafted, fun to watch and emotionally moving. I see literally hundreds of movies each on screens all around the world. It's what I do. Rarely, do all the right things come together to make a solid family film without special effects, elaborate animation or some other manufactured stimulant to keep the audience sensationalized. In other words, it's the rare movie that can capture the imagination, entertain and actually make you feel good, and do all of those things with a good play, well photographed and executed with solid talent. This is one of those films. In my opinion, given the sophistication of today's kids, I say it's kid safe and family friendly but it does have a PG rating (not sure why) so keep that in mind. Otherwise, see it. You definitely won't be disappointed.
