The general consensus about Disney/Pixar’s latest film, The Good Dinosaur, is that it isn’t great. But the other consensus is that kids will enjoy it. So where does that leave adult viewers? Dragged to the movie theaters to watch a kids movie, for kids.
Directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream (“Cars 2”), Disney•Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur” opens in theaters on Nov. 25, 2015. The film is rated PG.
My brief opinion:
– The “scary” moments of this story may be considered too scary for little ones (weather is a terrifying force) If your young one was afraid of the bears in Brave, this may not be for them yet.
– Altough it runs only an hour and 40 minutes, it feels at least 2.
– The best character is a human who acts like a dog. Why is he the best character? Because who doesn’t love dogs?
– If you’re a crier, then you’ll tear up at least once. If you’re a big softy, there are a few moments in there for you.
– Some of the funnier jokes are definitely poop humor (this is not a complaint)
– There were multiple parts of this movie where I wondered about other character’s lives more than our main protagonist, Arlo (for example, the fireflies he disturbs with his tail)

“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.
