  • The splashy animation is well-executed but again a bit monotonous for a full-length feature. show more

  • Ends with a big action sequence, turning into Raiders of the Lost Arby's when you wish it would serve up something less conventional. But by that time, the filmmakers have also served up a little food for thought, along with a lot of laughs. show more

  • A joyful romp, devoid of the tiresome pop-culture references. show more
