I haven't seen it yet - though we are going to the first show today. So I thought I'd make a discussion here for it.
I've heard it is great - it seems like my fellow GeekMoms have really enjoyed it :) I'll come back with my thoughts once we've seen it.
Pixar and Disney have once again out done themselves!
If you haven't seen it yet, I have one suggestion....make sure and stay THROUGH the end of the credits. :)
It was great - I loved that at it's heart it was a story about a mom and her daughter. Especially since Disney has killed off so many moms in the past.
I agree! I went to see it with my wife and two daughters. The crazy thing is, we can't come up with very many films that that deal with a positive mother/daughter relationship.
We're hoping to catch it at the local drive-in theater this weekend. It's a double feature with The Avengers, so I'll get to see that again. Which I'm fine with. :)
Craig Ferguson cracked me up as the voice of the dad. It is on my wife's list to buy when it comes to Blu-Ray (she is a redhead too)
All of our family liked it a lot. The "Southern Exposure" scene made me cringe just a bit, but another thoroughly enjoyable Pixar flick.
Did you guys catch the Easter Egg in the film? The Toy Story Pizza Planet truck as one of the woodcarvings? I didn't, but read about it later on IMDB.
It's just come out here in the UK, and I must say I wasn't that impressed. I love Pixar films generally, but I think this is one of the least interesting ones they've made, marginally above Ratatouille in my list. Which of course means it's still a million time better than the likes of Ice Age etc.
Meridia's hair was incredible, Billy Conolly was good and I liked the kilt gags. Much had been made of Meridia's archery skills in the trailers, but it was such a minimal part of the film in the end. And for a film that was supposed to big up the female role model angel, I found it disappointing that there were really only 4 female characters in the whole film and, apart from Meridia herself, they were pretty stereotypical - the skinny, prim and uptight mother, the fat cook and the crazy witch.
Not a patch on the likes of Nemo, Incredibles, Toy Story or even A Bug's Life
