      This film is very educational and humorous. I loved all of the puns and the jokes. I thought that they were very funny. I also thought that it was awesome that everything tied in with learning, so that you could enjoy watching the movie while learning new things about science. Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab is about Angie and her friends who discover Thomas Edison’s secret lab. They go on multiple science adventures to learn how to solve their problems in everyday life. They go back in time, shrink to be super small, go snorkeling, or even go inside animals bodies to learn as much as they can about their situation to help them solve their problem at home. Phillipa Alexander (Angie), has a voice of a child, which is probably why they chose her for the role of Angie. Phillipa Alexander’s voice can sound nerdy and smart or be used to sound enraged and mad. Shash Hira (Kent) can make his voice sound small and awkward. He portrays Kent as an intimidated character. The animation in this movie was not the very good. When they were talking, there mouths mostly just moved up and down. The arm movements they did were also really repetitive. Overall, the movements for the characters and scenery were not very life like. But, I don’t think a child would mind. This movie was animated for younger audiences, but the science they are teaching does not match. They should’ve taught basic science for the young audience instead of getting into evolution right away. My favorite part of the movie is when Angie and her friends shrink and go through the process of pollination. It looks really cool to see how pollination works, when you are super small actually see the inside of the flower and bee hive. The message of this film is to accept yourself for who you are, and to realize that science isn’t lame and can actually be useful. When Angie was building a robot for a competition, the opponents were calling her a geek and science nerd. But Angie wasn’t discouraged and actually liked that she knew a lot of things. She didn’t let them distract her and ended up winning the bot fight in the end. You can learn a lot from this film, if you can understand some of the vocabulary. I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and I recommend this for the ages 8 to 12. The animation and plotline seems like something for younger audiences, but the science and vocabulary is for older children. Younger children would not understand most of what Angie and her friends are talking about. You can learn a lot from this movie, so you should check it out on DVD’s now!
