My Thoughts:

This past Friday when my family was trying to decide on a movie to watch for our weekly family movie night, I suggested this upcoming animated movie.  My husband, like always, had never heard about this movie, so he was skeptical if it would be any good.  My girls, on the other hand, were eager to watch it just based on the cute cover art which featured a handful of animals including a beaver and rabbit.  I didn't tell my husband that Sir Sean Connery was voicing the veterinarian, as I wanted to see if he could tell once he heard this main character talk.

Of all the actors out there, I never would have thought to see Sir Sean Connery lending his voice to an animated movie like this. But, I have to say that after watching this cute family friendly flick with the my family this past weekend, that Connery did a great job and really brought life to the skateboard loving veterinarian hero. :-)

Here is a quick trailer of the movie, to let you heard Connery lending his voice, as well as see why my family loved this movie so much...



I know you will love this heartwarming and at time hilarious family friendly movie.  The movie was enjoyable from start to finish, and never lagged in between.  Even the girls stayed interested in, and were rooting Bessie Boo the Beaver to be saved.  When you are not enjoyable the breathtaking scenery in this animated movie, you will enjoy see teamwork and the importance of community in this movie that the whole family will enjoy, and want to watch over and over again.
