So...they've mastered space travel, but they haven't improved on the mop. They can navigate holographic maps, but dishes are still washed by hand. Am I missing something? Yesterday's Wall Street Journal predicts that this will be the first Disney animated feature to not break even. It's a shame in a way because it's more likeable than "Atlantis". Even so...I find myself admiring the backgrounds yet again. Not what the producers hoped for their audience reaction, I'm sure. The characters, yet again, seem as though they're designed for different movies. The most annoying by far being Morph...who looks like renegade plaque from an educational tooth film. If Disney has learned anything, it's that anime has a wide following and therefore, true to some of the best anime, they have stopped drawing noses on the human characters. Jim's nostrils seem to migrate south throughout the entire film. Martin Short does his best C3PO imitation only more effeminate. Silver is nicely handled, but seems strangely familiar in an Oliver and Co. way. The Doppler character and the Captain character are the most disparate characters making the ending all the more implausible and unsatisfying. They bear out Bill Murray's assertion from Ghostbusters that "dogs and cats" lying together is a sure sign of the apocalypse. Enjoy it, folks, this is that last big budget animated film you're likely to see for a long time.
