Ratings & Reviews

  • Thanks to myriad animators, the characters cavort, laugh and struggle against stunning backdrops, from lush jungles to cascading waterfalls. Groovy? Absolutely.

  • Picks up speed as it goes along and the finale is frenzied and, well, cartoonish.

  • This joyous romp is no mere new groove, it's a live wire -- 110 volts of pure holiday cheer.
