Oh my! This is definitely my favorite film I've seen all week! Brilliantly animated, great characters. I particularly love the rap song with awesome animation about Galileo. The evil character Naomi Money is just evil enough to make you shrug your shoulder as her caretakers step in to make sure she can do no harm. My only complaint is that the ending doesn't really do the film justice. It just sort of fizzles out at the end of the song and we don't see any true conclusion to Ms. Money's plan or the intervention by her team. I would love to see more work by Mike McCraw because I think he is simply brilliant. Definitely give this 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. Younger kids wouldn't get the irony of the evil Ms. Money. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST! juror.
Boxer, Verve, Campbell and Herman teach Naomi Money that the Sun revolves around the Earth, foiling her quasi-evil plan, and schooling her about Ptolemy, Galileo and Copernicus in the process.
