Pixar has had some stumbles in the past, but this one rates as their biggest fall yet. The concept seemed cool: A modern world inhabited by all sorts of mythical creatures has lost its magic. Two brothers (voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) set out to cast a spell that will give them one final day with their departed father, while rekindling the enchantment of their forgotten world. None of the characters are especially memorable and there aren’t any cute sidekicks to add wacky charm. The script is rather bland, never funny and tries way too hard to be sweetly emotional. Finally, the animation is seldom beautiful or even cool. Kids might enjoy the high-energy pacing, but there’s not much else to make this one stand out. To flex Disney’s new Fox muscles, there’s rather dumb (literally and figuratively) Simpsons short before the feature (and I’m a big Simpsons fan).
