I don't blame you for being so angered, Angered. I get upset when the Hollywood tooth fairy decides to play the revisionist. I haven't seen the film yet, but fart jokes in something as charming as this movie is supposed to be is a manifestation of the unsophisticated, pre-pubescent sense of humor and lack of imagination that many producers in the business of family entertainment embrace. They think that if it works in South Park, it'll work in Stuart Little.

The point I'm trying to get across, regardless of what one thinks of the film, is that another movie featuring animation is at the top of the heap. The medium has extraordinary power and influence in entertainment. James Bond movies and Schwartzenegar action films are taking the box office back seat to animation.

Does anyone recall what the word on animated features was in the 70s? The motion picture industry had written animation off. Look at what's happening now.
