This was surprisingly good. Recently Disney+ hasn’t had the best catalog but I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. This movie had some pretty good exploration of its themes, a couple fun moments, good use of CGI, unique characters, interesting shots, and surprisingly good pacing. This movie had my attention the entire time even if it’s bogged down with a cringe script, sub bar animation, and bad voice acting. At the end of the day, this succeeded in being what it wanted to be: an entertaining, cheesy, and digestible movie. Also cmon It has Danny Devito of course I’m gonna watch it. 

Favorite Scene: Ivan’s painting
