I know, \"How could that be?\" Anyway, For my money, this movie was better than Shrek, (especially the last one!). It bogs down a couple of places on the 2nd or 3rd viewing, but the first viewing is gold! It is a truly great and entertaining film. How can you say no to those begging eyes?\nAs far as Disc 2, you be the judge whether 11 minutes of kittens is worth extra $$ for you. Their almost as cute as Papa.
One of the small but valuable gems of Australian cinema, Lonely Hearts is a gently ascerbic film, if there is such a thing, exploring an Australia from a rather different perspective than was the usual case in the 70s and 80s
Some humor gets past the younger viewers but gets a laugh from parents. Would recommend this for 8 yrs. and up since it does have a plot. Teaches lessons about loyalty and choosing wisely. Did have a curvy slightly under dressed female pirate (minor role) and a brief reference to visiting an island with scantily clad women. Overall we liked the movie.
Take away the ethnic/pregnancy angles, and we've seen this premise countless times -- all the way back to the spate of post-World War II romances about returning veterans and the mates they married in a blink.
