 A Discovery Worth Watching!

With many Children's animated films the stories can be similar and sometimes predictable. The key is to entertain with laughs, a good pace and a good overall style and this film delivers. Its also good to see the British influence to the film. Theres also some good voice overs from some well known names. Overall a fun entertaining film with a few gags for the older audiences!

 An absolute winner.

One of those films that people may pass over, as I did, thinking it didn't look like 'their kind of thing'. It is. Absolutely fantastic. Very few films have caused me to genuinely laugh out loud. Adults will enjoy this every bit as much as the kids, if not more. Imagine Blackadder, mixed with Monty Python, updated, but for kids. The attention to detail gives even more laughs - one of those films that you notice something else with each time you watch it. Aardman Animation and the British Film industry at its very best. Many more like this and Mr Disney better start polishing up his resume - or his busking skills!
