      The thing about Peanuts is that it's meant to be a comforting, nurturing type of experience while at the same time providing something of a profound simplicity to the themes it desires to tackle. It's kind of like the Pixar movies, but flat instead of three dimensional. With The Peanuts Movie though, director Steve Martino (the last Ice Age movie) looks to bring Charlie Brown and his gang into the twenty-first century as they are presented in computer animated 3D. Fortunately, this doesn't seem to have changed the sweet and simple mentality the comic strip by Charles Schulz always took on. The characters and their world have been updated in no apparent way-they all still play outside by trying to fly kites or ice skating, there is no modern technology and even many of the same story beats we've seen before in the holiday specials that air every year are present. I largely only have those specials to refer to as I'm of the odd generation that was too young to get hip to the comic strip when it was in its newspaper prime (despite still running in syndication today) and am too old to have any genuine interest in this new movie. Still, it seems a childhood in America wouldn't be complete without having seen It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving or the original A Charlie Brown Christmas at least once. Given this was my only frame of reference walking into the 2015 version though, it seemed like little more than a cash grab given it was being presented in 3D and released just as the Holiday season was upon us. Of course, capitalizing on nostalgia has become big business since the social media age took hold and everything is suddenly worth a second look, but given the age and importance that the Peanuts brand carries with it this somehow felt more risky, more greedy, more capable of destroying real childhoods. Given it's mostly more of the same I doubt this will offend anyone, but in fact it will likely do the exact opposite and resurrect all the feels these characters originally inspired regardless of generation-heck, it may even inspire a few children of our newest ones.

      A Classic Approach Is Refreshing

      Let me begin by saying, 'I am a life-long Peanuts fan. I am only in my 30's and wasn't even born when the most famous of Peanuts movies were first aired on TV. But I've read almost every comic created by Charles Schultz.' That said, this update to the world of Charlie Brown & Friends was done right. It manages to blend the perfect amount of nostalgia and familiarity with its new storyline. It's immediately recognizable as a Peanuts movie. Yes, it retreads some of the concepts from the old TV specials, but that only serves as a great introduction to a new generation of viewers (beautifully modern graphics and all). So many "updates" to classic cartoons or tv shows get it wrong. They forget what made the originals great to begin with. In exchange, we get a terrible story or someone else's narrow vision of the old material or some slapped-together consumer sellout project. Hey Hollywood, shiny graphics aren't enough to make a vintage product relevant for a new fan-base. That's what makes the Peanuts story so balanced. Their new movie could have been made 60 years ago or today and it would still work. It beautifully updates an old formula, while honoring what made the original movies so beloved. The creative team should be recognized for getting it right. If you need another recent example where an old formula gets remade correctly; look to the new Star Wars film. A great revisit that connects the original trilogy: It pays homage, yet still stands on its own. I hope there are more Peanuts movies like this one going forward. There are enough movies out there that look great, but have no heart. The new Peanuts has a ton of heart. And might I add: 1) It is SO refreshing to watch a family film that is clean (no crude or rude behavior needed). 2) It's also fortunate that Peanuts is void of the eye-rolling pop-culture references that makes other movies irrelevant two months after their release. The best movies avoid those traps and stand the test of time for it. Peanuts proves both can be done and still entertain. I highly recommend!

      The Peanuts Movie is Perfect

      I was easily one of Snoopy’s biggest fans in the 80’s. I had every Snoopy stuffed animal (Snoopy, Belle, Spike and Woodstock) they made. I also had several of the outfits they sold for Snoopy to wear. Yes, I was a fan, and now I am a 6’4” 230 lb 40 year old man that still has a soft spot for the beagle in my heart! So, when I decided to try out the Peanuts Movie, I was a little leery they might mess up one of my favorite characters of all time. I am happy to say they haven’t! The plotline of the film here is basically following Charlie Brown as he adores a cute little red-head girl. Hijinks and antics ensue as the gang helps or hinders Charlie in that process. That is the plotline that the kids will enjoy. However, that is not what the adults will enjoy. Let’s face it. In order for this movie to be a hit, the movie would have to play well to kids, but more importantly to parents who are coming in hoping for a Charlie Brown Christmas experience. The good news is they get it in spades here. Scene after scene will help parents recall the Peanuts of their youth. There are mentions of Joe cool the red baron, Lucy pulling the football, Linus and his blanket, the great pumpkin etc. etc. This is really a wonderful walk down memory lane for those of us who ever loved the gang! In the end we have been given a gift for the fans of the Peanuts. An actual modern update to an age old cast of characters we love. Now if only we could get the kids to love it as much as the adults

      My son loved it

      I buy a lot of these types of movies for my 2 year old son, he enjoyed it quite a bit. What I didn't enjoy is my recent experience at Best Buy, unfortunately due to this experience it has me thinking about never going back. On black Thursday I went in to return an item to buy some other stuff. I presented the return to the guy at the front, which put a sticker on it. After a while waiting I find out that they don't have customer service open during this Black Thursday/Friday event which the guy at the front forgot to mention. I went to leave Best Buy and showed my bag to the guy checking receipts and such at the front entrance, I had my receipt but the guy looks at the sticker and says it has the wrong date on it and takes away my merchandise and didn't want to give it back to me accusing me of stealing apparently. I tried to to get my merchandise and told him they put the sticker on it and he said that they werent even doing that since customer service was closed then he hailed some police officers over who looked at me the same way, like if I was a criminal or something. I finally got them to look at the stickers in the sticker gun, they had the same date as mine, the guy who put it on wasn't even there anymore. THE rude guy gave me my bag back, not even apologizing and him along with the 2 officers walked out behind me like I was the problem. I have been a loyal best buy customer/elite member buy I think it's time to switch to only ordering from Amazon. This was at the Kendall location around 5:50pm.

      A Unique Film

      First let me say this: The animation is beautiful. It really captures the look of the old Peanuts cartoons the comic strip spawned. It's extremely impressive how the film manages to capture even the little details and movements just right. A real visual treat, truly. That said, the plot itself is a very mild affair. This is probably to be expected, but the story feels more like a bunch of loosely connected events in the life of Charlie Brown rather than any grand adventure. There's also several fantasy scenes that interweave with the main plot showing the adventures of Snoopy fighting the Red Baron. These scenes allow the film to take on a different, more action-oriented style, in both plot and animation. I felt like there was probably a bit too much Red Baron in there, but in the end they did (sort of) manage to bring the two stories together, so at least has a purpose. Now with all that said, I wouldn't exactly call this movie a laugh riot. It's more charming than anything. It would have probably worked better as a series of shorts or a TV show than a film, but then we wouldn't have got this gorgeous animation, so maybe it's a worthy trade-off. But in any case, it's definitely worth at least one viewing, if for no reason at all than to see how the impossible was done and they brought Peanuts to life using modern CGI while somehow managing to stay completely true to the spirit and style of the original.

      Charming and True to the Peanuts Spirit

      The Peanuts Movie is that rare film that's not only appropriate for everyone, but almost guaranteed to raise your spirits. Both an homage to the simpler entertainment of a bygone age, and a beautiful showcase of animation's latest techniques, the film is as charming as the classic Peanuts TV specials and is an excellent introduction for a new generation of fans. Deftly guided to the screen by the son and grandson of Charles Schulz, the film has a timeless feel that is wholesome, winsome and pure, and which perfectly encapsulates everything that makes Peanuts timeless. Animated with panache by Blue Sky, the film's evocative colors and appealing designs sparkle and are even better in this 3D presentation. While the film isn't big on action, the 3D subtly enhances every scene, from Charlie Brown's fumbling interactions to Snoopy's grandiose fantasies; combined with the excellent animation, it really puts you in the Peanuts world. This is Blue Sky's top film to date, and it stands with the very best of contemporary American animation. Though ideal for the young (in body or heart), The Peanuts Movie might be best for those who've grown up a bit too much. For the adults out there, if you find yourself getting world-weary or sounding a bit too much like an out-of-tune trombone, this movie may just be the pick-me-up you need.

      Fantastic love-letter to the source material

      Like so many approximately my age, I was raised on the Charlie Brown animated specials and fondly remember "Peanuts" being among the strips I enjoyed the most while flipping through the "funnies" at my grandmother's house. "The Peanuts Movie" makes so many loving references to the half-century of source material while still feeling fresh in and of itself. When I first heard it was going to be computer-animated, I was a bit worried ... then I saw the first footage/trailer and my fears were lessened ... then I saw the film and my fears went away completely. Everything about the animation still "feels" like Charlie Brown, and Snoopy's World War I Flying Ace sequences would never have been so grand otherwise. I'm only sorry this film didn't get more attention during its theatrical run, as it's a beautiful, heartfelt, nostalgic look at beloved characters. Simple it may be, but simplistic it is not. The bonus features are a fantastic testament to the painstaking lengths to which the creative team went to preserve Schulz's vision ... plus, I was fortunate enough to get the edition with the stuffed Snoopy which was certainly an added bonus. I highly recommend this film to everyone, from 1 to 111.
