    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

    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.

    I've been an avid Peanuts fan since the 1970's, and before I had seen this new full length movie, I wasn't sure if it was going to capture the same nostalgic feeling as the classics. However, I'm very glad I bought this (despite not seeing in the theater first). Despite being "modern" with 3D effects, it's very much still done in the same style we are all used to. We're fans of 3D anyway, as it adds another depth experience to movie watching. It's still 'cartoon' but exceptionally detailed in just the right ways. Seemingly "simple" details like a classic peanuts snow fall tends to really pop out nicely on the screen. As far as the movie plot itself, general story, gags and jokes are still very much the same and a great way, very nostalgic, yet a great way to introduce a new generation to the Peanuts gang. Nothing really strays from it's origins here. Even the voices are very true to the originals. I do also like very much that we get a lot more Woodstock and Snoopy airtime (literally!) than usual with this movie. They are great!

    Remains true to form, wholesome for entire family

    When I heard that a Peanuts CGI movie was being made, I wondered if the adaptation was going to take away from the Peanuts nostalgia that I grew up with...the Christmas and Halloween specials, the various cartoons, and the comic strip that everyone has come to know and love. This adaptation remains true to form, and is indeed a wholesome movie for the entire family. Without giving anything away, there are lessons to be learned in this adaptation, such as the power of friendship, the importance of maintaining integrity, and to encourage the ability to see the good in others. And unlike many of the recent Peanuts cartoons where it is just animated snip-its of comic strips, this is an actual movie that is new and entertaining. I am a father of two young children and my wife is a elementary teacher. We both would highly recommend this movie...but not only to children, but to anyone of all ages who enjoy quality entertainment and any fan of the Peanuts franchise.

    I have been looking forward to this movie every since I saw the previews. The characters have all been redone in 3D modeling so they have depth and look more real then the 2D flat animations. The story line was cute and enjoyable. Snoopy as always steals the show. Children should love it, and Adults also. But wait there's more. The disk extras. Has a lot of back story, interviews with Schultz family members, how to draw the characters, and much more. I even got the special Blu Ray package with a small stuffed Snoopy, but even without the special package like all Peanut's Movies they are timeless and a great addition to your movie collection.
