OK, we watched this Saturday with Lay’s nephews. We let them come over for a sleepover. They went swimming, then we watched the movie, then we all went to the airshow at MacDill AFB Saturday morning. Then they had to come back and do some more swimming. I don’t know how quick they went to bed, but I couldn’t get there soon enough.
I actually found the movie pretty fun though. There are several aspects of this film that I found to be very enjoyable: Its terrific animation, the delightful vocal performances of all the actors involved, and its irresistible imaginative charm. John Leguizamo shines as the heart of the movie, the sloth that inspires all of us to have a good time and gives us hope that there is still some imagination left in Hollywood. His creation and very talented vocal turn perfectly interacts with the other actors’ styles. Romano’s deadpan delivery this time has found the heart that it sorely missed last time, when it was a just boring attempt to leave his character with no personality. Romano has now found the essence of Manny and has some fun with it. He compliments Queen Latifah’s lovely and goofy Ellie. Leary’s Diego is not the showiest turn, but he also has some great moments.
