The Peanuts Movie


Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the whole gang are back in a heartwarming story. While Charlie Brown is trying to accomplish something, a new girl with red hair arrives, and Charlie Brown falls in love. Now he tries to impress the red haired girl to make her feel like he’s a winner, but Charlie Brown just can’t do anything right. At the same time, Snoopy is writing a love story about a beautiful dog. Then Charlie Brown gets a perfect score on his standardized test, but there has been a mistake. Should he tell the truth or get the love of his love to like him? Can Charlie Brown get the girl to love her or will he remain a nothing?

I really enjoyed the hell out of his movie.

Having grown up with the Peanuts Gang, I was really hoping for a great modern interpretation of the classic comic strip, and I got what I was asking for. Now, that’s not to say that it didn’t have faults.. for instance, I think they used way too much Snoopy vs the Red Baron scenes to fill time – but that can be overlooked for the good story and wonder voice casting.

All of the gang’s voices were spot on, just as I remember them from the old holiday specials. I also really liked the fact that it was rendered in 3d, but shot with a single perspective, to make it resemble the 2d comic strip. Focusing only on center frame. The only real deviations from this are the Red Baron scenes.

Good old fashioned family fun. Show it to the kids!
