++ I’m middle-aged so I love this era of Disney animation the most. I don’t have any beef with Pixar’s sleek computerized variety but this hand-drawn stuff is just plain gorgeous. I also have a very personal association with the movie that really doesn’t impact this review but it just makes it stand out in my mind more. But I don’t think Robin Williams has ever been funnier in any movie role (though Good Morning Vietnam comes close). The movie is fast-paced and fun, too.
