The most unrealistic aspect of this film is an Irish team choosing a leprechaun as a mascot. That would never happen.
I didn't enjoy this film as much as I expected. The trailers made it look like it was going to go in a different direction. I thought there'd be more human-human interaction than there was.
Parts of the plot were dragged out too long, in my opinion, and I found myself getting a bit frustrated with that.
I did appreciate the message that sadness is a necessary emotion and that these days we can be too focused on protecting a positive persona at all times. However, I'm not sure a younger audience would feel the same.
I WANT to like this film, given that I'm crazy about guinea pigs, but that very fact made me pretty mad with all the depictions of poor husbandry and generally bad animal care in this film. Yes, I know it isn't real, but I also know that kids copy what they see on screen and I pity the animals that were bought as a result of this film.
