One of the worst movies I've ever seen!
I love animated movies, and even movies made primarily for kids.
However this has to be one of the dumbest ideas for a movie I have ever heard of. I totally get he concept of suspension of disbelief, and I'm all for giving kids the message that their lives have unlimited possibilities, but this movie asks for too much even for a kids movie. A snail that competes directly against cars in the Indy 500? What?? And the fortuitous event that gives the snail this power involves him surviving getting sucked through an automobile engine. Really??
The animation was great, but why would Dreamworks waste so much money putting such an unbelievably awful story on the screen? I recently watched "Planes", and loved it even though there were some pretty far-fetched plot lines in that one (a crop duster winning an air race), because there were still significant attempts at including elements of realism. No such attempts were made in this movie.
