So we saw The Italian Job and Little Nemo In Underwaterland (okay, Finding Nemo, whatever) today.
I was pleasantly suprised buy The Italian Job. It's not the world's best movie, but it's a solid heist flick, with some textbook scriptwriting (the way the main characters are introduced and established in the first ten minutes or so is masterful), but someone--probably at the studio level, I'm guessing--didn't have enough faith in the audience to be intelligent and figure things out from being shown them--so instead we get told things we were already shown. Repeatedly.
Well, it was there. It was cute and all, and it had some great moments, and the animation was gorgeous... but mostly it was there.
