‘Flora & Ulysses’ Review: A Hero Tale That Lets the Fur Fly

‘Flora & Ulysses’ Review: A Hero Tale That Lets the Fur Fly

Over the last two years Disney taught us that superheroes come in all shapes and sizes, no matter what they are Big hawking or Subtle. And sometimes they are short and sweet.

in Cute movie “Flora and Ulysse” based on Novel of the same name, A young comic book fan escapes in his own paranormal adventure. Flora (a criminally adorable Matilda Lawler) is a 10-year-old self-proclaimed freak. Why? Her parents, the author of Cholly-Damon, who is suffering from writer’s block (Alison Hannigan) and separated from a failed comic book writer (Ben Schwartz). But a fatal accident between an ordinary squirrel and a rogue domestic appliance leads Flora to find her superhero, Uleisses, a bush-tailed wonder with super strength, intelligence and – “Holy unexpected events!” – Ability to fly.

Flora is captivating, as is her world, full of costumes and hats; She sees the hero following her on the street, and in the blink of an eye her world changes from 3-D to whimsical 2-D comic illustration. There is also a lot of laughter; Brad Copeland, who wrote the screenplay, specifically combines quippy banquets and zany bodily comedy (even from a cute CGI rodent). Leena Khan’s direction comes in a good-natured background, but the cast also includes a superhero lineup of comedy powerhouses: Danny Pudi, Bobby Moynihan, Jane Garfalo, Kate Mikusi, and even stage and screen great Anna Devere Smith.

Some are small gaffes. Hannigan and Schwartz have fun as playful parents, but lack chemistry and never seem comfortable in roles. And a British neighbor boy (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) feels too much of a cynical character.

“Flora and Ulysses” is close to falling into the trap of finding children’s movies of this genre often in itself, but miraculously never does. In fact, this hopeful comedy, showing how a twitch-tailed protagonist can transform, fly, and fly a family.
