A teenage girl finds herself transported to a secret universe where she must join forces with a team of whimsical creatures to battle the forces of evil that are trying to destroy their world in this adventure comedy based on author William Joyce's illustrated children's book The Leaf Men.~Jason Buchanan
The plot line and story are so well done that it is easy to forget that your are watching a cartoon movie instead of live action. It is important to have contrasting characters for good and bad to play off of each other, and this movie does a very good job of elevating both the good and the bad without sacrificing either side's story line.
The DVD extras were a bit simplistic, but it is only a cartoon. I wish that it did have more features - I'm just not sure what I would recommend to see more of in the Extras. The DVD case itself is a bit flimsy, and bends while trying to remove the DVD from the case. Both complaints are very minor and really do not take anything away from my decision to purchase this movie, or the enjoyment of watching it.
Overall - I really did enjoy the movie, and feel that you should add this one to your library.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Gets the kids to go outside
Watch the extra contents to get the kids interested in the outdoors and get some fresh air. The animation and detail of the forest was very well done to a point that it look real. Have plenty of characters to choose from, the slug and snail where my favorite. After the film had the kids explore the back yard and a park near by, just keep an eye out for them or supervised.
