Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

With conventional animation, a simple story, and a few intriguing characters, this modern twist on an old folk-hero story is pleasant enough but far from memorable. Made several years before its release, Bunyan and Babe will successfully introduce kids to an American legend. Some voice performances are noteworthy. Kelsey Grammer has a fine time with two stellar villains. Dorien Davies shares a wonderfully comic interpretation of a ditzy secretary with more to her than meets the eye. There's enough cartoon violence to make it iffy for kids who aren't able to separate real and pretend violence. Otherwise, the movie is fine for most kids.
