Here are five things that were correct with this movie and five that weren’t.
1-Snoopy should have Charlie Brown’s back.
2-Linus should always be wise, but have that strong faith that makes him slightly flawed.
3-Peppermint Patty should succeed even when it’s by accident
4-Sally should look up to her brother more often than not (this movie was one of the few times I really liked Sally).
5-Lucy will always pull the ball away and Charlie Brown will always fly up in the air and land hard on the ground
1-Marcie should not be stiff and ultra-serious.
2-Snoopy’s pretending works better when it’s not constantly pointed out that it’s just in his head.
3-Charlie Brown can succeed in small ways, but the little red haired girl becoming his pen pal comes very close to being more than just a small success.
4-When it came time for a classmate to be Charlie Brown’s pen pal I am sure that either Peppermint Patty or Marcie would have said yes before the little red haired girl.
5-Lucy might have thought Charlie Brown was okay, but she wouldn’t say it in front of others.
As a huge fan of Peanuts I actually thought this film was quite good. Perfect? No, but don’t let all of the old negative Nellie’s and their “this isn’t just like Peanuts was for me when I was a kid” garbage influence you. This film manages to catch much of the spirit and humor of Peanuts. Plus oh my goodness a G movie for the whole family? And it’s entertaining. That doesn’t happen too often anymore.
