Wowie! It's been a while!
|Oh yeah. The character design department must've had fun!|
|Mike's wisely at the forefront this time around.|
|Oh shit...just look at him! Something bad's gonna happen to this guy...|

So is this Pixar's deepest film? Definitely not. Even with a very poignant 3rd act and a surprisingly dramatic monologue from Billy Crystal's Mike, its themes don't nearly resonate as deeply as something like Wall-E, Up, Ratatouille, the Toy Story franchise, or even Monsters, Inc. But is it one of Pixar's funniest films? Well... actually, probably. It's up there! Director Dan Scanlon doesn't have many productions under his belt, but he really managed to make this a creatively fun feature with some genuinely hilarious visual humour and even some much needed heart to this story. So if you want a fun time, something to just take your mind off and watch some enjoyable animation, this is definitely a good one to see. And while it's not as great as Pixar in it's heyday it's definitely a step up from what they've been producing in recent years.
And at the very least, hey! At least it's not another Cars sequel!
