Animation
She looks like Mr. Potato Head with glasses, buckteeth, Pippi Longstocking braids and freckles symmetrically placed on her 12-year-old face. She has Dr. Doolittle powers that a shaman granted her after she freed his imprisoned soul from a warthog’s body. She has a wild-child little brother known for his wedgie dance, a pretentious would-be prom queen older sister and parents who are the Crocodile Hunters of Africa. She is the cute, quirky and captivating Eliza Thornberry of Nickelodeon’s popular animated TV series who finally has been given her long-awaited 80-minute Crayola-colored feature film with a mission to save cheetah cubs, rhinos and elephants from evil poachers. Because of the talented co-directors Jeff McGrath and Cathy Malkasian, the lack of kids’ flicks in theaters this holiday season and the star-studded cast of voices of Rupert Everett, Marisa Tomei and Alfre Woodard, the lives of the African animals and American audiences are in good hands.
