This may not be one of Disney’s more artistic outings, but it’s certainly one of its funniest! The voice work by David Spade, John Goodman, Eartha Kitt and especially Patrick Warburton as Kronk is superb. The plot is pretty simple, but at a brisk 79 minutes long it needed to be. This is purely played for laughs, and at times the comedic timing reminded of the older Warner Brothers animated shorts. I expect both adults and children are going to enjoy this.
This isn’t your typical Disney animated movie. No one starts singing, and this doesn’t get as dramatic as say, The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast. This is a light fun movie with lots of fast paced action and some hilarious jokes that the whole family should be able to enjoy.
Best viewing format:
The animation isn’t ground breaking. A regular DVD or streaming show at home should do the trick.
Best element for me:
I think Kronk is hilarious in this!
