My reaction
Concept:1/4 (Bad)
Story:1/4 (Bad)
Characters:2/4 (Indifferent) This must hold the record for the highest percentage of characters that are ethnic stereotypes. So damn lazy.
Dialog:1/4 (Bad)
Pacing:2/4 (Indifferent)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:3/4 (Good)
Acting:3/4 (Good) I love Lady’s voice casting.
Music:2/4 (Indifferent) I like Peggy Lee, but these songs all feel like filler.
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, 2/4 (Indifferent)). Meh. It’s cute enough to make me smile or chuckle in places. Bad storytelling, though.
Objective Rating (Average):1.9/4 (Eh)
