This is really quite adorable. Bolt (the voice of John Travolta) is a little dog and the star of a TV show in which he has superpowers. In order to get the best performance out of the dog, the director goes to great lengths to make sure Bolt believes he really has his powers. When a shipping error places Bolt across the country, he must find his way back to Hollywood and his “person” (the voice of Miley Cyrus). I saw this in 3-D, and it was a blast, but I imagine the movie plays really well in 2-D, too. The story is sweet; the animation is excellent; heck, it might even get you all misty-eyed. If you have kids, watch out: A scene in which the dog and his person were in peril had kids screaming and crying during the screening I attended. If you stick around for the credits, you’ll hear Cyrus and Travolta singing a duet.
