Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This movie does a very good job at modernizing the classic Uncle Remus folktales without sacrificing the original stories that have made them so popular since first being published in 1882. A sense of history comes through in this cartoon feature, and one gets the impression that this was a labor of love for the celebrities who provided the voices of the characters.

There are times when the cartoonish violence veers into classic Warner Brothers-style slapstick, and what's striking is how unnecessary it is. The stories hold up just fine without any of it. Regardless, as an attempt to place these stories in a more modern setting and vernacular, this movie succeeds just fine, and hopefully it will inspire families to seek out the original stories.
