It is brisk and entertaining, with just enough jokes going over the heads of the youngsters for us to catch.
This is a fantastic film about family, friends, sacrifice, and finding yourself as well as your place in the world.
This is a movie with very high expectations, and it manages to meet most or all of them.
It’s cute, funny, well-animated and has some deeper themes than I expected going in.
There are days as a parent you find yourself muttering “Sometimes I just want to…” and this film is here to finish your sentence.

It’s stunning, at times, and quite the achievement. But it’s Spielberg, and at this point that’s a baseline expectation.
