  • Manages to squeak by with enough charming set-pieces and amusing sight gags to compensate for a stalling storyline. show more

  • When writers find it necessary to beef up a screenplay with that tiredest of factory-farmed animated trope, the comedy dance off, one wonders whether a more organic approach to script husbandry might have been preferable. show more

  • If you can get through the excess of characters, and the requisite butt jokes, car chase and tween pop songs, the film does keep both the physical and the verbal comedy coming at a steady pace. show more
