If you are looking for a cute, fun, and funny movie to watch with the whole family this weekend, look no further than Flora and Ulysses. This is an adorable tale that will keep you smiling and laughing the whole time.
Matilda Lawler (Flora) is a delight to watch. She does a great job of moving the story forward in a compelling and entertaining way. She also has great chemistry with the rest of the cast. The other characters are all interesting and unique, even if a couple of them are a bit hokey.
While this isn't a big-budget Disney film, it isn't some cheesy, thrown-together-on-a-shoestring-budget flick either. It's a solid, middle-of-the-pack movie that looks and feels slightly better than "made for TV."
If you have children under 10, they are going to get a kick out of this movie. Tweens and teens, not so much. This story is a bit below their grade level. But it is interesting and cute enough to keep the parents engaged and entertained. So get ready to have a night of fun in your own living room.
