Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Ground-breaking animation and a delicious twist in the tale make this a family treat.

Dion Scher (27): What a brilliant movie, full of satire and humourous comedy, a treat for all ages. The graphics hit new heights in their realism. The story is well told and the characters lovable. A must see unless you hate animation, in which case my sympathies.

Francois van Vuuren (23): Excellent for both young and old. Definetley one of the better animated movies. Only drawback is the running time. Nonetheless a very interesting and nice ''popcorn'' movie.

Herman v Nokeyman (22): Brilliant animation and even more brilliant humour. Better than a romantic comedy !

Craig Nicholson (24): Excellent animation - better than Disney at least. Very humourous appealing to people in their 20's.

Jaco van der Merwe (32): One of the best movies of the year. An extremely clever and funny script with an hilarious characterization by Eddie Murphy. What a joy to watch!
