Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

It may have been produced by Studio Ghibli and animated with their usual attention to detail, but this isn't a Hiyao Miyazaki film, for better and worse. It tells a lightweight story lacking the emotional punch of Miyazaki's productions, but it has a silly, carefree spirit with real charm. Go in expecting the usual tropes of children's movies (including an endless series of farewells) and you might find yourself grinning at the film's goofiness.
