Richard’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was so amazing! I loved everything about this film but I've gotta start somewhere...
The animation was spectacular, I loved the creativity, the odd flares and the way they really utilised the medium. The colours were so vibrant and it looked so great.
The characters felt so realistic and I liked each of the family members because they weren't stereotypical, they all had more to them and seeing them interact was one of the many shining qualities.
Lord & Miller are amazing and once again knock it out of the park with the script. As I said, the characters feel real and the jokes were really funny - I laughed a lot! It wasn't just for kids but a film for everyone which I always love.
I also really appreciate that Sony had the balls to do what Disney won't and had a gay lead in an animated film! Great to see representation like that.
If you have Netflix, I can't recommend this film enough! It's so much fun and one I really want to show my family.
