On top of that the music is really good, not something you cringe at, and think, oh well, that's Disney. K.D. Lange, Bonnie Raitt, and Tim McGraw are all class acts, and each of the songs here are great! The animation takes a little getting used to, but I've become fond of it.
This is a movie that has scenes, and bits of dialogue that absolutely crack me up. I love the movie more each time I watch it.
A beautifully rendered transfer free of analog or digital blemishes, the 1.66:1 aspect ratio means that this film will look great on both traditional TV sets and widescreen models as well. The bright colors and smooth animation come to life in a carefully wrought DVD. The sound doesn't have any hint of compression errors and comes across with tremendous presence and a nice spread in the surround speakers.
Disney corrals a whole bunch of features for the DVD. We get a very funny animated short "A Diary Tale: The Three Little Pigs" which also played with the movie in theaters. There's also four deleted scenes with introductions by the director/writers. While some of the deleted scenes aren't quite finished, they're quite charming. The directors provide their reasoning behind cutting these scenes. There's a great little music video "Anytime You Need a Friend" incorporating some of the elements from the feature. We also get a 16 minute documentary on the making of the film which provides lots of neat tidbits that even kids will enjoy. Finally we have three games/activities for the kids. The "Yodel Memory Game" and "Yodel Maker DVD-ROM" will provide distraction for a couple of hours. While their not up to the more advanced DVD-ROM games we've seen introduced on movies for tweens and teens, their fun enough where most kids will enjoy them. We also get "The Joke Corral" which features jokes that were deleted from the feature film for one reason or another. A funny and entertaining commentary track from the directors will keep animation buffs entertained. There are moments here that will be over most kids heads though.
If this is, indeed, the last traditional animation feature we see from Disney (the company's Australian unit will continue to produce direct-to-video and TV fare in the traditional hand drawn style), then it's a great farewell that matches some of the best Disney has produced over the years. It may not quite have the appeal of "Aladdin" or "The Lion King" but its atmosphere of Looney Tunes humor crossed with the more traditional witty Disney humor makes it a worthwhile movie to watch with the kids. The extras might make this worth purchasing for most parents as well. The DVD-ROM features will provide a bit of entertainment independent of the feature film and the short cartoon and music video are also fun. Although this didn't do all that well at the box office (it only pulled in roughly $50 million to the $110 million budget), don't let that prevent you from viewing or purchasing this DVD. Unlike some other Disney features that failed to succeed, this one certainly deserved to do so.
if I ask her she will sing it for me. I love it. It takes me back down Memory Lane. She came to the library for our Summer Reading Program and sang many songs to the children this was one of them. They loved it.
