Review: ‘Zootopia’ Is A Perfect Example Of Why We Should Take Kids’ Movies Seriously

Zootopia possesses all the wit and charm of The Flinstones and Monsters Inc — films that built worlds adjacent to our own but delightfully adapted to fit a crazy range of citizens. Scale is used as a punch line and provocateur — the whip-snap of the camera as it jumps to include both elephants and mice continually raises a laugh, while begging the question — why is our expectation of perspective always set to the middle-sized majority? Typical animal behaviours play for gags while tugging at our assumptions. Why can’t a bunny be tough? Really, all foxes are untrustworthy? “Are you saying because he’s a sloth he can’t be fast?”
