The Peanuts Movie is a warm Linus blanket, with a Snoopy wrapped inside, ready for his big day.
Review by Matt CummingsIt's been a tough two months at the box office: for every Martian, Bridge of Spies, and Goosebumps, there's been three duds to take each of their places. Thankfully, The Peanuts Movie will not suffer the same fate: it's the best children's film since Paddington and could be the top animated film of 2015. Set amongst the deep history of the franchise, The Peanuts Movie reintroduces us to Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder and of course Snoopy, the beagle with a huge imagination and a healthy dislike for his nemesis, The Red Baron. When Charlie Brown gets a new neighbor - the enigmatic Little Red-Haired Girl - he takes steps to win her affection But, bad luck isn't far behind as a series of guffaws and bad timing leave Charlie Brown wondering if he'll ever meet his one true love. Faced with a book report deadline, the end of the school year, and a tree that's taken every one of his kites, Charlie Brown must persevere, while Snoopy tries desperately to defeat The Red Baron before he shoots down his dreams of finding love as well.
