    The remake that Doc Hollywood absolutely did not deserve.

    The best movie musical I've ever seen, and a significant improvement over the stage show. Do not miss this one.

    ★★★★½

    Setting aside the horrifically underwritten and underutilized love interest, this movie becomes the epitome of the mid-budget adventure movie. More of this, please!

    At this point, watch Cars instead.

    The only thing that doesn't land in the spectacular, emotional rollercoaster are a handful of the stylized overlays and editing gags, but I almost wouldn't want it any other way. Just maybe slightly less of it, with a touch more respect to the pacing of critical moments. This movie makes me want to play D&D and hug my dad.

    Better than 12, and possibly better than 13 / as good as 11. Don't skip this one!

    An Italian pig bounty hunter, who didn't always use to be a pig but always was a flying ace, shows down against an American pilot with the backing of all of the seaplane pirates of the Adriatic, this movie has it all and the pig puns to back it up. Also, he's the *only anthropomorphic animal* in the *entire move*, *everyone comments about it* but it's *never explained* and *never really resolved.* This movie is brilliant and wholesome and lovely all at once.

    The only thing holding this film back from greatness is a kinda stiff leading man, but he makes an absolutely convincing military bomb tech so I see what they were going for. This is an excellent disaster film with some really good direction and cinematography, as well as some actually pretty funny sight and editing gags. Best of the MonsterVerse, by far, and damn my Very wrong teenage opinions on this one.
