A sunny, family-friendly adventure that will appeal to most kids and tweens.
A feel good piece of cinematic fluff for those who know the everyday joy of spending their lives with a companion animal that’s as pleasant as it is forgettable.
This is a perfectly passable example of what I call ‘cotton candy’ entertainment. It’s light, fluffy, and makes you feel good until you get the inevitable too-sweet tummy ache later.
The script is balanced by earnest performances and an engaging look into a culture that’s grossly underrepresented onscreen.
