  • Lilo & Stitch - Honest Opinions...

    I'm just curious, what do people think of this movie? I've never seen it, but have heard lots of different things. What are the opinions of you, my fellow Disney fans?

        It's a very cute an entertaining movie. There is an emotional attachment to characters, but children will find this movie more entertaining than adults, i think. If disney would/could make more movies like Lilo and Stitch, Pixar content wouldn't seem quite so superior.

          It was just hilarious, we laughed from beginning to end with a couple of teary eyed moments thrown in. In fact, when we saw it at the theater the first time(my boys and I) we enjoyed it so much that we went back the following week, we rarely do that. Rent it and check it out!

                Both Lilo and Stitch, as characters, have a depth that many other Disney characters lack. Lilo, in particular, is not simply a strong princess-type, but a child from a damaged family with problems all her own. Stitch, of course, is a great mischief maker, something that Disney seems to have been lacking for some time.

                The story itself is simple, but the emphasis is on what it takes to make and hold a family together.

                The animation is some of the best in many years, I think. I am particularly a fan of the lush watercolor backgrounds.

                  It's okay. Disney falls into the trap of being childish instead of childlike too often these days. It's nice to see them portraying Lilo's sister as something other than a bimbo, as their formula would normally be.

                  The "villians" are more annoying than entertaining.

                  And Elvis is dead, people. Let his noise die, too.

                    I think that, aside from The Emperor's New Groove, that this is quite possibly Disney's most hilarious and touching traditionally animated film. The humor is straight out of the old school Warner Bros cartoons that made Bugs Bunny a star, and the look itself is absolutely a magnificent landscape of watercolor and Hawaiian splendor.

                    The writing is wittier than you'd normally find in an animated feature and the voice performances are superb as well. The content is probably a little on the provocative side given that it's a Disney film (a very broken family), but the lesson is a valuable one.

                    Stitch.....Stitch, Stitch, Stitch. The second I saw him in one of the trailers (where he whisks Princess Jasmine away from Aladdin just by his sheer charm) I just knew I was gonna like this little guy. Stitch is the bad boy of the Disney lineup. He's got an attitude and a party sensibility that some parents may not agree with, but like many of the Disney elite, he's got a heart of gold and can be your bestest buddy in the end. Trust me....you want him on your side. He's tough as nails and can play a guitar.
                    (I was determined to master his voice after seeing it, and have finally succeeded! )

                    I couldn't find anything to dislike about this movie. In the dictionary under 'fun', it'll say "see this if Emperor's New Groove is rented out". The Elvis soundtrack fits like a glove, the characters are the most unique you'll ever see, and the colors are soothing rather than shocking and garish. Ths film was definitely a labor of love. See it. You'll have a blast.
                    "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

                    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

                      To be honest, I didn't like it the first time I saw it, but because Stitch immediatly became my husbands favorite charactor we bought it...and the more I watch it, the more I LOVE it!
                      As said before Lilo & Stitch have a level of depth that most charactors are lacking lately. It deals with a different family dianamic than we are used to seeing, but it's very nice that we see how the sisters interact and help eachother even under such interesting circumstances.

                      and I love Mr. Bubbles, he's just perfect!

                      so to begin with I didn't like it but after being subject to watching it and listening to it far too many times, It is now one of my favorite disney movies.

                        They really nailed the Hawaiian culture. The houses, the plants, the accents, everything... Except when one opens a plate lunch to eat at the park or beach, there ain't going to be no sandwiches in that container. Two scoops rice, a scoop of macaroni salad and a piece of teriyaki beef maybe, but no sandwich.

                        The alien stuff aside, the songs and everything about this movie hooked me. Loved it.

                        I also like the way Nani and Lilo weren't Barbies.

                        And Nani saying "Stupidhead" that is sooo Hawai'i. I can't explain it, but it's a very popular cut down.

                          I resisted watching it for quite a while because I just thought it looked stupid, mainly because of the ads featuring Stitch invading other classic films. When I did finally give in, I fell completely in love with it. It has that timeless charm which the films that Walt made all had, which has been lacking in many of Disney's later films, and the characters themselves have a depth to them that has also sadly been missing. I also felt a real sense of being drawn in to the environments, as if I were in Hawai'i along with everyone in the story. The humorous sequences are all knee slapping funny, the sweet parts are touching and just-mushy-enough, and it has unforgettable music. Overall, the thing I loved most about the film was that it made me forget who and where I was and I felt, for the first time in many years, exactly the way I felt when I was a little kid watching Disney films for the first time. Definitely one of the best Disney films ever.

                                  I didn't like it. Stitch reminded me more of a "docile" attack dog. "Sure, he's friendly, just don't stare him in the eye."
                                  Lilo's older sister is worth watching, though. Alooooooo-ha!

                                    I love the movie. It is funny, charming and very moving movie. The watercolor backgrounds are so pretty. I also love the music especially the two hawaiian songs.

                                      I don't like the story. The animation is great, the colors are beautiful, and the attention to detail is immaculate, however, the characters are very annoying. Lilo is so bratty, and I HATE bratty kids. Stitch is ok towards the end, but he just seems so rabid and over the top. I think the movie is childish, but then again, I am a fan of the older stories that touched you rather than slap stick Warner Bros. type stuff. If I wanted that, I go to Warner Bros.!

                                      Cool movie though if you like contemporary Disney.

                                        Love love LOVE it! I have a number of favorite scenes: where she and Nani are yelling at each other ("Why don't you get a rabbit?! It would smell like you!"), when she's playing Elvis and says "Leave me alone to die," and when she's shaking up the pickle jar and says "My friends need to be punished."

                                        I disagree with Soulquarian about Lilo being bratty, in the sense that I interpreted his statement to be simply that she's bratty for no reason (I could be wrong). She lost her parents at a young age and her sister is struggling to be a sister and parental figure to her. Lilo is a mixture of childish and adult characteristics. I think that maybe I liked her a lot not only because she was drawn cutely, but there's a loneliness and isolation in her. She tries to fit in with the majority but winds up kind of freakish to them. That's how I felt all through my school years.

                                        And if you want bratty, you must DETEST those little girls Lilo tried to be friends with!
