Real (and Good),
This review is from: Lilo & Stitch (DVD)
Get this DVD and watch it, twice. It's worth it. The story is charming, emotional, and real to life. People find that they can change, that they have a place in life, even if it's not the same place as everyone else.
It's real Hawaii, the wonderful, traditional, somewhat anti-tourist place that I remember.
It's scientific fantasy without the endless laser blasts, a family story without the so-called "traditional" family, a love story that includes arguing... In short, it mirrors the lives we lead, but the mirror is forgiving.
Quite a lot for an animation!
And of course, it's full of the King of Rock and Roll, and that ain't bad.
You will read some review here that pan the movie because it features a less than idyllic family scene. My response is, thank goodness! I want the audience to raise it's hands if they've never EVER argued with a sibling...Good, no hands.
Great movie. A keeper.
