The Tale of Despereaux
Small hero. Big heart.
I had seen this all of this in parts over the years, but saw it in its entirety a few weekends ago on a Saturday morning. I don’t think my kids were even in the room anymore, but I didn’t want to get up off of the couch.
Anyway, it’s as pint-sized mouse with elephant-sized ears that shows no fear and gets whisked away into his own little fairy tale to save a princess. How cute. It’s not a bad movie at all, but I didn’t find it very funny, the set was always extremely dull, and the characters were kind of boring and monotone. That’s sounds quite contradictory after reading it aloud. Hmmm.
I guess I’ll just say you can do worse and leave it at that.
