Clint Says: Wait until after opening weekend, but see this in theaters
This is a great film for the whole family. If you have young girls around the age of 8, this is the kind of film that they will love and it might even inspire them. For parents, the story is fast-paced enough and compelling to keep your interest as well.
I saw this in a theater full of kids and they all seemed to really enjoy the movie. There was a lot of laughter and applause throughout, and a nice reception as the end credits rolled.
The plot is simple and formulaic, but for the target audience that won't be an issue. Adults will find it predictable, but the kids will feel the tension.
What makes the movie even better is the beautiful animation and the catchy songs. This is the kind of film that will have you smiling and tapping your feet for the full 90 minutes.
The animated films offered in theaters lately have been terrible, finally LEAP! gives us something worthy of seeing. Grab the kids and the popcorn, candy, and drinks and enjoy this fantastic film!
