Product Overview

Rustle up the clan and sit down for a night of laughs with The Best of Blu-ray Disc: Family! This incredible collection includes some of your all-time favorite family films in stunning high definition: HAPPY FEET, TIM BURTON'S CORPSE BRIDE, THE ANT BULLY, and SCOOBY-DOO!

HAPPY FEET: The joyous Academy Award-winning Best Animated Feature (2006) about the dancing emperor penguin Mumble, who embarks on an epic journey and ultimately proves that by being true to yourself, you can make all the difference in the world!

CORPSE BRIDE: This stylish stop-motion animated feature follows the story of a young man whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride while his real bride waits bereft in the land of the living. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter star.

THE ANT BULLY: When you're as small as an ant, the world is big - and adventure is bigger - as a boy discovers after he consumes a secret potion that shrinks him to insect size. Julia Roberts, Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep and Paul Giamatti head the voice cast of this rollicking, warm-hearted family treat.

SCOOBY-DOO: Zoinks! Two years after a clash of egos forced Mystery Inc. to close, Scooby-Doo and his clever crime-solving cohorts Fred (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Velma (Linda Cardellini) are individually summoned to investigate paranormal incidents at an ultra-hip hotspot.

Review [Scooby-Doo] One of the most resilient pieces of late-'60s pop culture, the Saturday-morning cartoon show Scooby-Doo featured a blond surfer type, a hottie in go-go boots, a goateed stoner, a dykey know-it-all with glasses, and the eponymous big dumb dog traveling the country in a sockadelic painted minivan called the Mystery Machine, exposing the fake ghosts of capitalist greed...The movie has Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard), Velma (Linda Cardellini), and a creepily digital Scooby reconstituting their commune to solve the mystery of Spooky Island...There's even more leaping through glass windows than in The Bourne Identity, but as this movie knows what it is, Scooby-Doo's a relatively painless 85 minutes.

Review [Happy] Happy Feet is a weird movie. No one can accuse director George Miller and his co-writers of playing it safe, but there are some genres - such as family-friendly animation - where adherence to conventions can be viewed as a positive trait. 75 minutes into the 105-minute movie, I thought I was watching the first great animated film since The Incredibles. The final half-hour disabused me of that notion. Taken in total, Happy Feet contains enough solid entertainment to be worth the price of admission, but the production's last act self-inflicted wounds do irreparable damage to what is an otherwise fine motion picture...It's fair to note that many of the elements that bothered me about the film aren't going to be noticed by the under-10 target audience, and there are plenty of things sprinkled throughout for adults to enjoy.

Review [Ant] Following the mindset of so many recent CG kidpics -- the gabbier the script, the better -- "The Ant Bully" is lovely to look at but a headache to listen to. Visually dazzling cross between "Antz" and "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" follows a boy forced to live among insects, with extremely noisy and (there's no other word for it) antic results...Davis fluidly orchestrates the pic's games with perception and dynamic shifts in scale (an exploding firecracker, seen and heard first at ground level, then from a human's perspective, supplies more wit than anything in the screenplay). Project reteams the helmer with a number of his "Jimmy Neutron" collaborators, including editor Jon Price and composer John Debney, who wrote the memorably tuneful score.

Review [Corpse] The Oscar for this year's Best Animated Feature Film belongs right here, even though the ravishing goth romance that Tim Burton has conjured up in Corpse Bride isn't strictly animated in the computer-generated sense. Burton and his co-director, Mike Johnson, use the stop-motion technique, which means taking puppets -- about a foot tall -- and painstakingly moving them half a millimeter at a time to achieve a subtlety of expression beyond the range of CGI. It takes a twelve-hour work day to produce even a second or two of usable footage. Burton used stop-motion in 1993's The Nightmare Before Christmas, but the digital improvements at his disposal now really make it sing.
