This is a very cute movie, and while it might not be a huge award winner, the animation is really cool from an adult perspective. There is a whole lot of attention to detail and the lighting, and the many small gizmos that Lawrence has made over the years to assist him, and be part of his magic act. Miss Grace was glued to the movie, and rooted for the madcap conglomerate to keep the house from being sold while Lawrence was in the hospital. It's a cute movie for family movie night and we highly recommend it!
