    Too bad Reese Witherspoon can't sing. She's the Russell Crowe of the film.

    It's a shame this movie isn't better. Those screen shots are amazing.

    I thought the movie was great. We need more animated movies with more of a musical element to them.

    My wife says that when she took my boy to see this in the theater there was a Minions short with it. It does not appear to be on the disc?

    I second that. Animation and music, good combo.

    I was afraid that this film would turn out to be like
    a reality TV singing competition. That there would
    be multiple rounds of eliminations and contrived
    drama of milking out who advances and wins.
    When the eliminations were resolved within
    minutes, I was pleasantly surprised.

    I didn't quite see that. Buster the koala and Mike the
    mouse, as 2 halves of the same whole? The koala's
    $100,000 deception was truly accidental and he made
    the best of a desperate situation. The mouse was
    more malicious.

    As for "marching towards the inevitable happy
    conclusion where all disasters are easily resolved,"
    if you caught the tail end of Mike the mouse's fate,
    his resolution suggests an unhappy conclusion. It
    couldn't be too emphasized or else the kids might
    get nightmares.

    No mention in the review of what I thought was one
    of the best characters of the film. John C Reilly's
    lamb brought some of the largest laughs. I guess it
    goes without saying, Reilly is always great. Perhaps
    the review didn't need to say it.

    No Minions short that I found on this package.

    Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
    we have very little reason to be interested in them.

    Thanks, sorry... I think my question is actually the reverse (though my wording was very bad and may have indicated otherwise). I have the disc and didn't see the Minion short on it either.

    But is my wife misremembering that there was a Minions short in the theater?

    Thanks!!

    I don't recall a Minions short playing before the movie in the theater. The Minions do appear in the Illumination logo at the start of the movie, though. Perhaps that's what she's thinking of?

    After a little searching, I'm sure this is what she saw, but it was in front of Life of Pets:

    I didn't go to see either film with them.

    Thanks!!

    After rewatching, I'm glad the filmmakers DIDN'T
    easily resolve Mike the mouse's fate with a happy
    conclusion. I'm okay with that occurring off-screen.
