Desperate for entertainment at your place? How about a little Despereaux? I like to save up a nice stash of good quality children’s movies for special Friday nights. The Tale of Despereaux certainly caught my attention with its colorful computer animation and a darling little mouse (Matthew Broderick). Finding a rated G movie was an added bonus! There don’t seem to be many of those these days. And although this one gets a little intense at times for the very young, overall it’s a fantastic tale that lets kids get a look at the world of castles, knights, and – uh – mousedom.
Parents will enjoy special jokes placed throughout just for them, and the animation is enough to fascinate all ages. I’m such a sucker for computer animation, and The Tale of Despereaux has quite a showcase. The faces are remarkable, and you’ll love trying to guess which famous actors are the voices behind both mice and men (and starlets too).
