If you’ve seen the trailer, you sort of know what it’s about. And you’re not wrong if you’re thinking it’s the typical story about traditions which by the end are no longer a thing. That on its own is pretty boring. Been there, done that.
But it’s Pixar. They use a setting and let their imagination run free. They have shown again what they can do with a simple and timely premise.
They succeeded in making their animation compelling enough to engage the audience. There were a few who shed a tear. That says a lot, if you ask me.
Scottish accents are funny on their own. Add a couple of weird looking characters, throw in some contemporary (and not so contemporary) cultural references, and you’ve got yourself a hit. Mix in some cuteness and you’ve definitely got the ladies in the bag.
Pixar created a wonderful environment, made the right plot twists, mixed it all together into a film for all ages to enjoy. Although there are those who seem to have a need for looking for things that aren’t really there…
I would recommend you go see it. It’s great fun!
