Cloudy has 85% on the Tomatometer, for what it's worth.

Ah, go watch it anyway. If you go during the middle of the day during the middle of the week (as I did with Toy Story) you'll probably even have the theater to yourself, which is interesting.

"the barrage of pop culture references"

I wonder if the writers all grew up watching Rocky and Bullwinkle and thought they could emulate it.

Splendid.

Best line, that all males should mull over: " . . . I think she's . . . smarter than I am."

I remember an old Robert Weber cartoon from The New Yorker. A father is sitting at his son's bedside, saying, "Mike, I have to level with you. I said I liked Disney World, but actually I didn't."

Wallace and Grommit have a new pic...

I wasn't too crazy about Cloudy. It has a familiar pattern - bright, funny beginning, pretty good middle, and then a long drawn-out finale where the hero has to save everyone all by his pretty little self. Cute, but it wasn't Up. And there is some particularly repulsive bathroom imagery toward the end that I assume is why it got a PG. Best thing was Mr. T.

I have two young girls and a few years ago they couldn't get enough of Mary Poppins so I ended up watching it several times with them. About the same time I saw one of the Shrek movies and realized what the difference between them was. In Shrek, and many like it, the adults laugh at the things slipped in there for adults while the kids laugh at something else. But in Mary Poppins my girls and I found the exact same things entertaining. I think the latter is a much harder task for a film maker and it's fair to say the result is a much better movie. Pixar films are clearly in that category.

(Lately the girls can't get enough of Help! and A Hard Days Night which thrills me to no end.)
