this movie is the best that I have ever seen. I am a 16 year old woman and I found this superior to anything I have seen. The only poeple that are giving bad reviews to this movie are the ones that are not happy enough to stomach it enough. They are simply mad at themselves, mad at the world, mad at the poeple around them, and mad at their life. They have no wish to suceed in their dreams and life. They have no intuition of dreams, nor do they have any happy thoughts of anybody. This movie had nothing to do with anything those reviewers said. There is very mild sexual stereotyping, that is about it. The only thing with politics was that 10 second scene towards the end of the movie, with maybe two sides fighting on wether there should be any more fishing, so what! They try to put the movie down by setting up a lame excuse to not see it. THEY ARE WRONG!!!!!!!! This movie is a must see for almost any age and will enlighten you. I would recomend ages above 8 years old. THe morons take it to the extremes because they are not always in kids shoes all the time, they pay way to many attention to the news. This movie had many different messages in this alone, and the environmental messages make sense to all of us. We dang all know that this movie is telling us what we are doing to the environment. You all know that you are not being yourself if you hate this movie. Sure the story line is a little hard to follow, but pay attention, and you might just learn something from it. The people that wrote it were just unhappy souls and are jealous that mumble had dreams and they didn't. They did not even persevere enough to get anywhere in life if it ever made their lives change. The poeple that gave them cs nead to pay more attention to the plot, and nead to admit that they indeed liked the story. the graphics looked so real, and you were practically in the avalanche itself. Shame on you if you think that the graphics suck! Mumble is so cool and cute, you just want to give him a big hug! He and his friends were trying to find their way to the forbidden shore, and the reason why they were in one place to the next was because that is what was on the way there. He just ran into those obstacles on his way there. Remember, its far away from home ***** so it really comes down to those people who are just plain angry of everything. I give this movie an A!!!!!!!
