But Dull Execution on Everything Else .

The problem's with this film is that the main character, Nemo, was boring and the story was pretty lame.

The plot in predictable & contrived.

I just finished watching it and I enjoyed it a lot.

It is ironic that I had such a difficult time staying awake during a movie that takes place in Slumberland.

But in order to do that the scenes actually have to be entertaining all the way through.

Zzzzzzzzzzz .

From here, the Nightmares begin to screw around with the dream world as well as the real world, sending Nemo on a mind blowing journey, bouncing him between the real world and the dream world until he ends up marooned in the middle of the dream world ocean.

This boy can come off as rude, unlikable, boring, bratty, or even sexist at one point.

i would recommend Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, and Animaniacsand i would recommend Finding Nemo and its sequel aswellNot that Little Nemo is a terrible choice, i just think that there are better choices out there (those other products being an example) with more intriguing content, better pacing, and more interesting characters too

) Even our main protagonist Nemo is bland.

The animation is stunning.

He's an empty shell.

The Animation in this film is absolutely beautiful and the idea of the Slumberland characters being the people from the circus to give an example on how Nemo doesn't keep his promises is creativeBut, The Story is a mess leading to extremely slow pacing and a structure that feels like the writers were struggling to get this plot to the 90 minute markand none of the characters have any development, some of them are pointless, or are just blandIf you do want better products that were made by TMS or the word Nemo.

Unfortunately my search came up empty.

A lot of what happens in this 90 minute movie is more pointless than an unsharpened pencil.
