Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (9 ):

This low-budget, unoriginal undersea adventure movie has so many flaws it's almost painful to watch. Preschoolers may not be bothered by the eerily lifeless eyes, stilted animation, and dull or downright confusing backgrounds of Izzie's Way Home, but with so many other choices out there that are beautiful, engaging, and enriching, there's absolutely no reason to spend any time with this movie.

The story and dialogue repeat themselves over and over until randomly moving on to something else that may or may not have any logic to it. Animated mouth movement is so poor it's often difficult to tell who's talking when more than one character is on the screen. It's a poor, pale imitation of Finding Nemo that'll just make you wish that's what you were watching instead.
