Review:
Blast off to a land of colorful shapes and whimsical characters in Polieville, home of Rolie Polie Olie and his family, the creation of acclaimed children's author and illustrator William Joyce. In this full length Disney feature, it's little sister Zowie's birthday, but plans are dampened by the menacing Gloomius Maxiumus, a spider-like, pirate-like mean guy who makes our heroes feel blue and snoozy. He threatens to "unfuneate" everything in sight. Rolie and friends must defend the fun, reminding Gloomius and everyone else that tickling and laughter are the best gifts we can give each other.
