Disney manages to not pounce on every single cliché available in every scene, and even manages a fresh line or two. The characters espouse decent values, and no one is composed of 100% Pure Evil. Their machinery for tear extraction is as honed as ever. It’s enough progress that I didn’t regret watching, but I’m also not craving more anytime soon. If only Disney could poke a little fun at themselves here and there, movies like this could be worth the Cheese Factor 9. Granted, this is a kid’s movie, and I’d probably beg to see it again if I had to sit through a few others.
