In the midst of my last days before giving birth to my second child, I found that being super-hormonal and/or emotionally weak, I had a lot of tears in the beginning. Yes, it is animated but I am going to, once again, chalk it up to the raging hormones!
LOVED this film! It was very charming, sweet, with a great story and some very relatable and funny moments between many of the adorable characters.
Primarily, it tells the story of Mr. Frederickson and a little boy named Russell, who enter into an adventure together to fulfill a lifelong wish of Mr. Frederickson's Ellie Mae. They meet some very interesting, colorful characters along the way that ad humor and charm to the whole movie, beginning to end. There is also a villain that ads excitement to the film and the film ends on a wonderfully high note.
I definitely recommend seeing this film and I would definitely say this is suitable for children as young as 3 (hopefully with an attention span to sit through the previews and movie) and adults alike!
Two thumbs up from the pregnant mumma!!!!
