Quite an enjoyable movie

Rating: 7/10

I was browsing through IMDb when I stumbled upon the reviews of this
movie. As a matter of fact, 6 months ago, I saw the Dutch dubbed
version with 3 kids (one 6y, 2 10y).

I have to say, everybody enjoyed it. The 6y old even asked me to buy it
on DVD. I wonder if the person who gave this a "1" even bothered to
look at the movie at all…

Because I like Paris, I enjoyed the little details the French animators
put in it. It really captures the Parisian atmosphere. The animation is
in the same league as Megamind, Despicable Me etc. It's not as good as
the Pixar/Dreamworks movies, but it was still very well done.

Some jokes worked, others didn't, but all in all I found it well worth
the money.
