Lilo and Stitch (2002)

- by Valentina Alexander

Valentina & Gizmo & StitchL ilo and Stitch is actually sort of funny. The moral of the movie is that you shouldn't judge people by their appearance. Even if you look bad you can still be part of a family. I like the part where Stitch tries to be Elvis and dresses up like Elvis. The movie takes place in Hawaii and it is sort of funny at the beginning when Lilo feeds the fish a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Lilo and Stitch is about a alien and a little girl. They get into a lot of trouble because of Stitch even though he tries to be good. The trouble that they get into is actually funny. Like when Stitch tries to act like Elvis and everybody loves him when he plays the music and then they get too close and Stitch goes AAAHHGG and scares them and all the people run back home. Its really funny when the sister talks on the phone to some guy about Stitch and says "I think it's a Koala, an evil Koala". But he isn't evil.

Sort of at the end the guy that made Stitch kidnaps Lilo and Stitch. Stitch gets away but Lilo is stuck. The guy who made Stitch turns out to be good. That's All Folks.Elvis & Lilo & Stitch

Lilo and Stitch is a delightful departure for a Disney animated movie. Mostly hand drawn (with just a little computer help), it’s full of warm colors and preciously beautiful points of view. However, old Walt is probably spinning in his grave with Lilo being a little girl with anger management problems and Stitch an illegal, inter-galactic genetic experiment gone awry. But Walt would have been pleased with the moral embodiment of the Hawaiian concept of ohana, or family, often summed up with the promise “nobody gets left behind”. Valentina nailed it: “Even if you look bad, you can still be part of a family”.
