Paulie is a "feel good" film about the life of an amazing parrot and thelives he touches. He starts out as the friend of a young girl, then liveswith a dying woman, an Hispanic performer and a con man. He finally windsup as the subject of experiments at a laboratory, where he is befriendedbyan introverted Russian immigrant, played by the wonderful Tony Shalhoub.Iwon't give away the end of the film, but it'll bring tears to your eyes.You won't believe you are crying about a parrot! A nice little moviethat'll make you laugh and cry and give you a feeling ofhope!
This is a really heart-warming family movie. It has absolutely brilliantanimal training and "acting" (if you can call it like that) as well (justthink about the dog in "How the Grinch stole Christmas"... it was plain badtraining). The Paulie story is extremely well done, well reproduced and ingeneral the characters are really elaborated too. Not more to say exceptthat this is a GREAT MOVIE!
My ratings: story 8.5/10, acting 7.5/10, animals+fx 8.5/10, cinematography8/10.
My overall rating: 8/10 - BIG FAMILY MOVIE AND VERY WORTHWATCHING!
