| Massively Underrated!
It's the Care Bears in their newest CGI movie, "Big Wish Movie." Think it's lame? Think it's cheesy? You couldn't be more wrong! This movie has a bit of something for everyone --- top-notch vocal performances and songs, great humor, a well-written story and some neat new characters.

The basic premise of the movie is that Wish Bear loves helping her friends by making wishes on her wishing star, Twinkers. However, some of the Care Bears are concerned that her wishes are creating problems rather than helping things out. Wish Bear, upset, makes a wish for some new friends that like wishing as much as she does --- and prepare to be shocked and amazed by the results! There are lots of great jokes in this movie and even a nice reference to the previous CGI Care Bears feature, "Journey to Joke-a-Lot." Viewers will also probably be pleased that there are a lot more Care Bears shown and speaking in this one than in "Journey to Joke-a-Lot." There are a total of five songs in the movie. Each are fun and different from the simple opening theme (which features a chorus repeating "Care Bears in a Big Wish" many times --- very simple, but works with the music) to the drop-down riotous "Get a Lot." And the "Power of Wishing" song played during the closing credits feels like a fun blast from the past.

Some have complained that the animation is cheesy, but I rather like it. It's 3D, colorful and fun to watch.

The DVD production of this movie is well up to the great standard that the movie set. The menus feature many of the 3D scenes from the movie, including the Care-a-Lot conference room and Wish Bear narrates all the menus. There a few neat games and the Care-o-Meter is woven into the DVD, so each time you complete a "Caring Activity," you're one step closer to unlocking some additional bonus features.
