'The Peanuts Movie' Review

If you've seen (and loved) A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, then you've seen The Peanuts Movie, and that's what bummed me out. Undeniably sweet, the feature-length movie is also practically a Charles Schulz revue, recycling all the familiar tropes, catch phrases and best bits from the old television series. The Peanuts Movie will probably make a mint, but it feels so safe that it's pretty disposable. I reviewed the film for Screen International.
