After the third attempt to watch this film, I finally got through the first 15 minutes and am glad I did. There always seemed to be something to stop me from getting too far in. So, what did I think?

"Is it entertaining?" Yes. For the most part, the songs were enjoyable and the animation was fine. The pacing could be improved somewhat, mostly by eliminated 2-3 songs. 2 out of 3

"Is it interesting?" Yes. The character backgrounds and the story development were easily above the average kids movie. The plot was a tad predictable and the moral seemed to meander some. 2 out of 3

"Is it memorable?" Somewhat. The most unique thing were the character types. While the animation was fine, some of the human facial expressions were just off enough to be slightly creepy. I am glad most of the movie had some of the main characters as animals. 1.5 out of 3

Start with 1.
1+2+2+1.5=6.5
I will round up for the overall enjoyment of the time spent.
7 stars.
