You were a lot kinder to it than I would have been lol! I thought it was pretty bad for a pixar movie. When you put it next to somehting like Finding Nemo it can’t even compare at all.

I thought the kid brothers were funny tho.


I think it was the worst Pixar movie, yea including Cars. I don’t think they know what there doing anymore and I bet the next film flops big time.


All I know is I want a stuffed little brother teddy bear. (0.0)


wrote a post on Ben and his work on the film Wall-E. Now he’s the subject of a new book and a story on NPR about his iconic work. Wall-E is the best.


Its like you read my thoughts! Not great not terrible. Somewhere in the middle.

Finally saw it on DVD. It sucked. Bring on Incredibles 2.


Brave won the Oscar for best animated film so it looks like most people disagree with you about the movie. 😛
