"I" think you should skip this.
`The King And I' It's weird to me that Warner Brothers, after seeing competitors like Disney and Dreamworks raise the bar of animation so high, would sit there and be content that their films look like Saturday morning cartoon rejects. The drawing is so choppy and unfinished that it takes you right out of any contact high you might receive from the wonderful Rodgers and Hammerstein music.

This, like the WB's last offering `Quest For Camelot', is just another drab excuse to sell some coloring books and bad cd-roms.--------- 3
