My children dragged me to see this movie and I guess I am glad that they did ... sorta kinda. It is about a teenager, MK, who after losing her mother has to live with her eccentric father in the forest. He is a little out of touch because he is preoccupied with proving that there are tiny people living in the forest. She wants him to change so they can have a relationship. When MK realizes that he is too obsessed with the crazy idea, she decides to leave him but not before somehow getting mixed up with them and shrinking herself.
The movie was cute. It had its chuckle moments. I was so glad when I did not have to listen to Beyonce anymore. I am a fan of hers but the girl needs to give up acting. She played Queen Tara in the movie and I could not take her. I figure if you are horrible in CG, you just need to give it up all together. How could a cartoon character give a horrible acting performance? I have never witnessed such a thing in my life until Beyonce. Sorry boo, but please do not do that again. Other than that it was a cute movie. The animation and visual affects were beautifully done. My kids enjoyed it but they were not crazy about it.
Rating: C+ (plus for the aesthetics)
