My Take on the Blu-ray
My family loved this movie! It was hilarious and who would not love an overbearing father and a monkey belt that talks (in his own way). The story was fun and touching and has some great messages to share about family in general. I did not know what to expect from the movie as I did not see it in the theater but I have to say that now after seeing it here on Blu-ray, I wish that I had seen it on the big screen. One of the other things that I enjoyed was that the movie was still geared toward kids, and not specifically adults with kids as ancillary (as many cartoons are today). Overall, this was a great movie that all families should watch together and everyone in general should watch for the fun that it will provide and the smiles that will last long into the future!
