REVIEW

We expected Will Smith to carry the movie, but actually found the whole supporting cast to be entertainingly likable. The story is very creative and does not fall into modern narrative cliches. We genuinely laughed out loud a few times. This is the perfect movie for the whole family that is also creatively satisfying. Overall, it’s visually charming, headed by a great cast, with quirky and fun aspects in a very digestible format of animation.
