Charlie Brown is back, along with his best pal Snoopy, and they are bigger than ever. Well, mostly bigger. THE PEANUTS MOVIE is an old fashioned children’s animated feature drenched in nostalgia. It is a movie that is so true to what creator Charles M. Schulz brought us that it sometimes feels a bit too familiar. Charlie Brown is still the lovable loser that tends to make a mess of everything. His dog Snoopy, as per usual, pals around with a little yellow bird named Woodstock, and they have their own adventures. The biggest difference this time is the use of 3D, and it utilizes this technology better than most animated films. The youthful exuberance of Charlie and friends comes off the screen in a surprisngly effecive way.
