Okay, let's get one thing out of the way: the plot has absolutely nothing original to it. The hero makes out he's the next big thing, and needs to find out if he is or not. Yep. Been there, seen that.

In this case, he's a lizard. It's an animated feature, so of course they can get away with talking animals and the like. And it is very well made from the computer generated side. Even the water is believable. On the other hand, there have been so many animated movies, they'd better be getting it right by now!

But we have our hero, and the obligatory collection of wacky characters, including the love interest. Voiced by a range of stars, such as Johnny Depp (in the lead role), Ned Beatty, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy... everyone puts in a decent effort.

It's an enjoyable movie for what it is. Just try not to hard to think about the plot (because you'll guess it all), sit back, relax and just go with the flow.
