Uppers: The zebra was really, really cute. And no matter how annoying the Kentucky accents were, I didn't get a headache. Also, I loved how they seriously made it seem like the guy was gonna lose. Don't see that every day.
Downers: The flies were gross, Whoopie Goldberg didn't play the part right, the dog was completely un called for. I would also like to add that it's too bad that, no matter how great of actors they are, Frankie Munez and Mandy Moore (you know I love Mandy Moore) did not match their characters. Disney probably chose them right off the bat because they're famous and would bring in more money than new people -- but in my opinion, they just didn't fit. Stripes' voice should have been a little bit deeper and less scratchy, and Sandy's voice should have been just a little less airy. She is a jumper, after all, and to be a jumper you have to be tough.
That being said, I'd give this movie a 2 and a half out of five stars, because it was pretty.
Oh. And how do you like my new layout? I'm still tweaking some things, and I may use another background entirely, soon enough, because as much as I hate to admit it, Winter's almost over.
