This was a fun film to watch and ended the nine-film series on a good note. I felt the storyline was a little lacking but the graphics and fighting were top-notch. The music and sound effects made the whole movie fun to watch. I feel like the people who are criticizing this film were expecting way more than any of the past Star Wars films ever delivered. I was surprised to see Carrie Fisher in the movie since she passed away during the last movie. I found out they used old footage from some previous movies. I felt like they tied that in very well. I will watch this movie again, maybe with a nine movie Star Wars movie binge.

Amazing Pixar film about siblings and an incredible bond they can share. It was very well written with amazing visuals and effects. The adventures the brother takes in hopes to see their dad one last time was something you would see out of a fantasy book. While some storylines were predictable, it was still an amazing story with a wonderful ending. It’s going to be one of those movies that I will probably be watching multiple times.

I went into this movie knowing that it was going to be a stupid comedy, think Happy Gilmore, Anger Management, etc. I found this movie not to be that funny, the main character “Missy” was just over the top ridiculous. I’m pretty sure that was the point but It was just too much for me. Most of the things she did weren’t that funny. I found the HR guy and Tim Morris (played by David Spade) to be pretty funny at times but not enough to save the movie.

I initially watched this movie when it came out back in 2000. My memory was that it was hilarious and had an awesome soundtrack. I remember it being one of the better comedies that I had seen in a while. I even purchased the soundtrack but I can’t seem to locate the CD. Rewatching this, however, gives me a different opinion. The soundtrack is still great, it was funny and witty in places, but the movie itself didn’t live up to my prior expectation. If you have never seen the movie and like witty comedy, I would still recommend it.
