Kinda tired plot and elements. Aimed at a younger audience that I should have predicted, so my adult opinion may not matter much.

As I mentioned in a comment about Onward, I managed to watch two animated movies in one week with a missing father figure. The difference in Abominable is that the protagonist daughter, Yi, longs for her father but the message is much stronger of maintaining a family unit than of moving on from longing.

I think Yi was a young teen, but driven and naive and maybe the most atypical young teen you could meet today. The best audience age might be pre-young teen, appealing to kids looking forward to a future where they have more personal freedom and parental trust. There's definitely some Chinese culture burned into the story that might seem odd to a NA viewer, but it didn't strike me as idiosyncratic or peculiar; it's just a family with an absent father. The quest was straightforward while interesting, a road trip to return Everest to its home while baddies chase and relationships evolve. One notable detail was some obvious bad guy deaths at the end, which weren't shown in a Peckinpah way but still came as a shock when I was expecting everybody to live happily every after. I think Dr.Zara's badness should have been a tad more obvious so you could accept her particular fate.

So, the daughter grew by coming to understand family is what she has, not what she lost, with hugs and pork buns all around. Worked for me while a little more cartoonish than expected, avoiding real physics and realities like eating and sleeping as superfluous, offset by some slow gaps and emotion themes that I don't think would outpace a 10yr old. An unimportant aside; I couldn't get past Everest's vocalizing and expressions reminding me of Hiccup's dragon Toothless, different but similar.

This is a very enjoyable family movie. Kids 10 and below will laugh very hard to the corny and silly jokes in the movie, so be prepared for those loud laughs. The story, action, and dialogue is very enjoyable to adults as well.

Wow. I really enjoyed this movie. Animation, dialogue and story....all great. It's a family movie, not just for kids. Do watch it with your family or friends...or if not, you'll enjoy watching it on your own too.

It may be in the same category as buying an albumn for the cover art, but I am so charmed by the included animated short I recommend the borrowing of the film to see *Marooned*. Please honour the filmmakers enough to watch through to the end of the credits. Delightful.
