If you know me, follow my blog, or watch my TV spots, you know by now I'm generally down on animated comedies.  Yet PIXAR is my exception to the rule.  They just do them so well.  And this one is particularly good, even for PIXAR.  Perhaps it was their collaboration with Disney.  Like all great Disney classics, it really captures the magic with great characters you actually care about, great casting, a great story, and a great score.  And there's just something about setting a fantasy film in Scotland that enhances the experience.  And, of course, if your story takes place in Scotland, you make sure and get Billy Connolly, Kelly MacDonald, and Craig Ferguson.  You just do.  And they did.  Well done, PIXAR, well done.
