A corporate stork and a young woman have to deliver a baby. Though intermittently hilarious (the wolves are good, and there are some beautifully random jokes) this is an odd beast with a complicated set-up that has little inner logic. The usual heartwarming lessons learned, though.
A Polynesian clan-leader’s daughter escapes her island home to prevent a terrible prophecy. Supremely confident quest narrative; a focused and involving animation with huge attention to story, action, and character detail. Recommended.
Three children journey with Peter Pan to battle Captain Hook in Neverland. Okay minor Disney cartoon with one unfortunately dated song and dance sequence. A greatest-hits version of the story.
A rookie rabbit cop and a con-artist fox team up to solve a mystery. Excellent Disney ‘toon, with some smart gags and a progressive social message, let down only by slight over-length and an uninvolving resolution.
A frankfurter finds out that there is no hereafter. Relentlessly sweary food-based riff on the Buzz Lightyear and Pizza Planet alien characters’ delusions from Toy Story, which just about holds itself together.
Forgetful Dory goes on an epic journey when she remembers her parents. Gorgeous visuals and packed with gags, even if the short-term amnesia jokes are overloaded. A decent though unsurprising sequel with a scene-stealing octopus and Sigourney Weaver.
Some sharp moments, but on the whole a little flat. The story is more off key than the usual efforts, but it’s a melody you’ll be all too familiar with.
