Awesome, just awesome
2 June 2015 | by buly_boy2007See all my reviews

Awesome, just awesome movie.

I don't know how to say this but it is a while since I've last seen a movie that made me laugh freely.

It is a complete movie from my point of view because it's understandable for children and it has plenty of jokes for grown ups. And I enjoyed a lot the jokes related to celebrities names like: Charlize Theron, Kevin Bacon, Hugh Jackman and others I don't remember right now.

It has plenty of surprises and it is after all a comedy wrapped into an animation movie that totally deserves the time spend watching it. I gave it a 9, maybe a little bit higher that rated but in my opinion you just have to see this :D.
