The Tale of Despereaux
Inoffensive, intermittently imaginative, occasionally charming, adequately animated.
Nothing really to argue against seeing this story of a fearless little mouse who lives in the big palace, but there isn't a lot going FOR it, either. Despereaux is plucky short of courageous and cute short of endearing. Since the movie was based on a children's book that's been around since 2003, it's probably unfair to say that the kitchen scenes seem derivative of Ratatouille, the gloom cast over the kingdom looks borrowed from Igor, and the underground rat city could have been lifted from Flushed Away, but it's hard not to think "Gee, haven't I already seen this?".
