Dreamworks’ family-oriented "Joseph" is a class act: both respectful and entertaining, with a gentle heart. Inspired by the Book of Genesis, not Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s ubiquitous rock ‘n roll Broadway extravaganza, Dreamworks’ new direct-to-video animated feature, "Joseph," is the saga of Jacob’s favored son—he of the coat of many colors—who became the most powerful man in Egypt, second only to Pharaoh. Ear-pleasing soft, pop-style songs blend seamlessly into the well-written script; the quality animation and 3-D imagery are fluid and at times, eye-popping; and the vocal talent, headed by Ben Affleck as Joseph, is aces.
