I like film. I also like to sit. Around those things I do have a life...somewhere!
Ok...so this is a Christmas film built around a Wham song with an entirely Wham soundtrack. From that synopsis this film shouldnt work.

I think that this is because Pixar made a movie for a different audience. This is a film made for kids, and made for kids to enjoy with parents. Previous Pixar outings had nods to an adult audience. This didn't and I think that is why it has so much criticism levelled at it...unjustly if I may add.…
