If you happened upon my thirteen year old son, you'd think he was around fifteen- maybe sixteen. He's wide like a line backer and about as tall as one too, towering at six feet in height. But he's my baby and wanted to go see Peter Rabbit, the movie.
I'm one of those people who despises movies like The Smurfs (with live action) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, but I happily went to see it as soon as I heard their accents and all the most amazing shots of London and English countryside! How could I say no?
So the story is about that rascally rabbit, Peter. He manages to win the heart of a young woman who reminds him of his mother. But when the old farmer on the next lot, with a plentiful garden, dies away, they come across a new foe. One who not only keeps the garden fruits and vegetables to himself, but also wins the heart of Peter's surrogate mum. So the man has to go!
Peter Rabbit carried a few qualities I enjoyed, even though I dislike cartoons and people in movies. One was- it was amazingly beautiful! (Location! Location! Location!) The country is lush and definitely a place I'd love to live. That alone gives the movies a thumbs up from me. Secondly, it was fun to see London again, and all the gorgeous sites I'd visited, as well as missed during my extended visit. Anything that shares views like the ones in Peter Rabbit, I'm always going to enjoy.
If I had to be honest, yes there are parts that were very funny. I laughed, but none were side-splitting. It was funny. But there were parts that I fought sleep on as well. I don't know why, but I just don't do well with real people and digitally added creatures. They did look better than the surfs had, so that was a plus. I'm going to rate it slightly overr the halfway mark out of ten, but exactly where, I'm not sure.
If you've got little ones and they love watching animals get the best over a grown man, then they'll love this! If they love seeing a digitized bunny make the most meanest of faces and laugh out loud at them, this is their movie! Oh, just go see Peter Rabbit! LOL I'm off to the next review!
