Film Review: Zootopia

One thing about animated films, yes, before even The Lion King, Shrek and The Incredibles, they appeal to little and big kids.

There is a reason films like Lady and the Tramp and Alice in Wonderland are still classics.

Dreamworks, Pixar and Disney all have this gift and it is what has made their films stand the test of time.

Zootopia is no different, plenty of sight gags and lines to amuse the kids and then "sneaky" one liners and cheeky references to make the adults giggle.

Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin voice the two leads, a fox and a rabbit respectively in this world - Zootopia - where all mammals live in relative peace.
Mostly.

Like all films focussed (kind of) on the under twelve sect, it has a underlying message, but it doesn't throw it in your face like the fables that Aesop was so fond of. You enjoy the film, but it has quality to it, which means that it will stand the test of time and in time, become a classic too.

  1. This quote comes from another animated film that appeals to all.

    “Mike: Psst, Fungus. Fungus, you like cars? Because I got a really nice car. You let me go, I'll give you... a ride... in the car.
    Fungus: I'm sorry, Wazowski, but Randall said I'm not allowed to fraternize with victims of his evil plot.”
