screenplay by John Logan
directed by Patrick Gilmore & Tim Johnson
by Walter Chaw Making almost no impression at all, DreamWorks' latest animated flick is a lot like their last animated flick, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron: an endlessly-reproducible light romantic cartoon heavy on the derring-do and gender slapstick, and light on anything that could possibly be construed as memorable. The most noteworthy thing about the picture, in fact, is that it exposes the surprising quickness with which DreamWorks' has become that which it most disdains: Disney redux--its sixth animated feature satisfying the maxim of joining what can't be beaten and getting as entrenched and boring as Treasure Planet in the process. As soon as it's declared that the quest of the film is for the "Book of Peace," it's already past time to let the eye-rolling commence.
