This movie was funny and endearing. I recently had to rewatch a powerful scene in the movie (yes, there is a powerful scene in this movie).

This was a wild ride. It was funny and crazy and way more weird than I had anticipated.

I think this just became my new favorite movie ever! My brothers and I had a sibling hangout night, and this was the movie we chose to watch, and we all loved it! Ferdinand is such a lovable, big-hearted guy, and all the background characters are interesting and funny in their own way. (Though admittedly, Lupe took some getting used to.) And the dance-off between the bulls and the horses was HILARIOUS. We had to back it up and re-watch it before moving on with the rest of the film. I was crying, I was laughing so hard.

As far as the story goes, it doesn't exactly follow the book (but what movie does?). However, one of my brothers noted that it was unusual in that there wasn't a "character arc" as such for Ferdinand. Instead of having to overcome a personal flaw, he starts out the movie with very strong convictions, and the rest of the film is about him living up to those ideals even as the bullfighting culture around him tries to convince him to abandon them. So it had a very powerful message, I think, and one well worth learning in today's society.

All in all, I give it five stars and two thumbs up!

Cutest movie ever!

This animated film features the world of bull fighting. We see it from the perspective of the farm animals. The main character is a bull named Ferdinand. The plot is good and there is a message. The animals have cute personalities and humor.

This movie was a big miss for me. I have always loved the book "The Story of Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf and this movie completely failed to capture the message of peace, gentleness and tolerance celebrated in the slim, picture book classic. Because the original story is so slight, the movie is chock-full of padding, slapstick filler, and random extraneous and unlikeable characters. Some of this extra padding is downright painful to watch, such as the dance-off scenes and the slaughterhouse scenes. Ugh! I also found it infuriating that one of the few characters from the book, Ferdinand's understanding mother, is removed completely from the movie and never mentioned! This seems like an insult to all women since she is one of the main characters in the book! Instead his father is in the movie and turned into Ferdinand's hero. I found the movie pretty loathsome and I would rather read the gentle, charming, delightful book over and over than ever watch this loud travesty again.

Great animation movie (underrated). Definitely recommend for kids & families alike. Entertaining, fun, and comedic. Good takeaways from this movie as well (ie. teamwork, pursuing dreams, etc.).
