Twitter Capsule: Clever conceits and creative potential of first half-hour explode into eyesores, excess, and sticky sentimentality.

VOR:   I have a hard time accounting for the popularity of this film. Theoretically interesting to see Disney leave fairy tales so far behind. Then again, they don't. Sub-sub-Toy Story.
