The Snail and the Whale ★★★

A road movie with pratfalls and chase scenes, this short basically skews close to what the movies have been good at for about a century. That’s ideal for the 10-and-under audience who’ll most appreciate this. 

There are some vibrant visuals as the whale introduces the snail to new worlds. But when he starts to explain the sky to a creature raised on the beach, you have to wonder how much they thought this script through.
