|Relied on the Laughs 3/5|
Screenplay writers Ed Decter and John J. Strauss deserve praise for the script. It certainly did not lack pace; with both Izzard and Belushi's wit shining through in a quick-fire comedy. No it isn't the funniest film you'll ever see but believe me, without the hint of gentle comedy, this film would definitely have been one to miss. With it, Disney manages to make another ok family film. It's no 'Lion King', but it will have to do.One point to add; if you watch this you may agree that, at times, it feels like parts are copied from both 'Madagascar' and 'Ice Age'. Just saying.
Overall I would have to describe it as a good kids film, with moments that will occasionally make adult laugh. Nothing overly impressive but its not one to avoid.
Would I recommend it? I guess so.
