The animation for this film is really very well done. The characters have a certain amount of reality about them. The story is just plain ridiculous.
This isn't, oddly enough. I was bored very quickly, and the young audience I was sharing the film with, were equally un-enthralled. I also remember several of the kids at my home continued to play up throughout the whole film - a rather telling symptom of disinterest. This contrasted very sharply with the audience for “UP” who were very attentive as soon as the action started.
I suspect the problem with Cloudy is the adult, relationship based story, Ideal for girls and Guardian reading adults.
I wouldn't recommend this film and don't want to see it again, unlike much superior animations like Shrek, Up etc.
Rating: 2 / 5
