Gloriously entertaining although at times it does drag a tad bit. Really wish I had seen this on the big screen. Can't believe this is my FIRST Matt Damon movie. Ever.
Weird hearing the voice of Joaquin Phoenix in such a wholesome and sweet children's film.
Now that is out of the way, this was a very pleasant film with very beautiful animation. Heartwarming and at times funny. However... Jesus Christ Phil Collins sure went ham with the songs didn't he?
"They just want to see a little misery out there so they can feel a little better maybe. They're entitled to that."
This film just puts your through the emotional wringer. Best way to describe it would be Battle Royale and The Hunger Games set in the Great Depression but instead of teenagers forcing to fight to the death we get a group of people from different fields of life simply wanting to win some money taking part…
