There are three reasons you need to watch this movie:
1) Sloths work at the DMV
2) Shakira is a famous singing Gazelle
3) SLOTHS WORK AT THE DMV
This movie is super witty, really funny, but more than anything teaches a great lesson on how not to judge a book by its cover (or not to judge an animal by its “wild” past). Don’t worry, I’m not gonna get all high and mighty on you, but the underlying message of throwing away stereotypes makes this movie pretty awesome.
The two main characters are a fox and a bunny – the fox is trying to prove that he can be trustworthy even though “everyone knows foxes are sly”, and the bunny is trying to be a cop even though “bunnies are cute and can’t be seen as authoritative figures”. (Spoiler alert) As the fox and bunny start to become friends and solve a major criminal case together, they learn to wash away all the preconceived notions they had of other animals. HANDS DOWN, my favorite “going against the norm” moment in this movie was when the little sheep became the mastermind villain. Totally brilliant.
Popcorn Rating: 4 popped corns
If you have kids, make them watch this movie with you because you’ll all enjoy it together. If you don’t have kids, then I suggest you get in your jammies, pop some corn and watch it anyway because you don’t have kids and you can watch whatever you like! And you’ll like this, trust me.
