"As Elvis might put it, you can't help falling in love with LILO & STITCH." -- Claudia Puig, USA TODAY. Out-of-this-world storytelling, stunning Disney animation, and wild and irresistible characters are at the heart of Disney's hilarious new animated adventure. This worldwide box office sensation is a heartwarming comedy about the power of loyalty, friendship, and finding your place in the world. On the lush and tropical Hawaiian Islands, an independent little girl named Lilo adopts what she thinks is an innocent puppy, completely unaware that he is a mischievous creature who has escaped from a faraway planet. Stitch takes Hawaii by storm, wreaking havoc and hanging ten while he evades the alien bounty hunters who are bent on recapturing him. It's an action-packed comedy the whole family will enjoy over and over again.

There are so many reasons why I give Lilo & Stitch a perfect score. For starters, the writers decided to tell a story of a family going through hard times and they do such an excellent job. I found myself caring for Lilo and Nani, hoping for things to end in the usually happy way that Disney movies do.
I also love the character Stitch. He has the friendly looks of ET and some of the most energetic antics I have ever seen in a cartoon character. Stitch is an absolute welcome sight for any die hard Disney fan.
The animation is also spectacular. The use of Hawaii as the setting gives Lilo & Stitch a beautiful looking back drop. The use of water colors being blended in with traditional animation is stunning.
Lilo & Stitch also has a great soundtrack with a perfect selection of Elvis Presley songs that are complemented by the score of Back to the Future composer Alan Silvestri.
The movie also delivers important messages for kids in a very entertaining way. Stitch is the perfect solution for the trouble that Lilo and Nani have been facing, but during the films climax it seems as though they feel like he is not. This tells kids to be careful when searching for the solution to their problems. On top of that there is the theme of ohana. Ohana is Hawaiin for family. Lilo says that family means that nobody gets left behind or forgotten. The use of this theme brings my to tears.
The writing is excellent, the characters are great, the animation is spectacular, and the messages for kids are delivered perfectly. Lilo & Stitch is a rare movie that is as close to perfect entertainment and rightfully deserves my seal of approval.
And the real beauty is that the movie isn't ultimately about the aliens. They're more like window-dressing, set pieces, or mood-setters. What the movie really is, through and through, is the story of two sisters who've lost their parents. They're both dealing with the grief, and moreover, they're learning how to move on. Nani, the older sister, finds herself suddenly having to be a mother. She has to find work, put her own life on hold, try to eke out some small living and make a proper home for her own baby sister.
Meanwhile, someone from child services is watching her every tiniest step, threatening to take the little sister away if Nani can't get a job and get her life into shape, but even he's not the villain. No, he's sympathetic as anyone. He doesn't want to separate the kid from the only family she has left. He sees the tragedy in all this, too, and ultimately, he's just trying to look out for the well-being of a little girl, even if taking her away would break his heart.
This really isn't a movie where you come out thinking, "Oh, that alien. He was so wacky!" Instead, he's really just this outsider who comes into their family and almost ruins everything. He loves them, and they love him, but there are just so many obstacles, so much adversity, and all they really want is to be together, to be a family. But the sisters are already in such a bad place, beaten down by life itself for no good reason, and he just adds so many more complications... But maybe family is worth complications. Maybe they can find a way. And that's really what the movie is about.
