Hardly a classic, but diverting
12 September 2010 | by jakehadleeSee all my reviews

Very run-of-the-mill - something for the kids to watch on a rainy Sunday when there's nothing else on.

You get the feeling they weren't really trying very hard with the translation - something that seems common to almost all dubbed cartoons.

Storyline is derivative, and - OK it's a film about talking animals - but even so, suspension of disbelief is strained to breaking point at times.

Just to correct a review from earlier - he says "come back stupid ice floe", not "Come back stupid ass fool".
