Big Hero 6

is an absolute delight, a movie that will make you laugh, applaud, and maybe even tear up now and again.  It's the story of a young genius, his brother, and a group of friends who become much more than just another collection of college students.  It's silly and serious, sometimes in the same scene, but it makes the combination work.  It dances on the edge of sentimentality quite frequently, and every now and again it falls over that edge, but I didn't mind at all.  For a change, both audiences and critics agree with me on this one. 

If you've seen the trailers, you might be tempted to believe the film is simply a silly animated robot comedy, but don't succumb to that temptation; this movie is much more.  It has genuine heart, but it also boasts plenty of action and humor.  The plot is nothing you haven't seen before, but as always, that's not what matters; it's the singer, not the song, and this film sings beautifully. 

Don't read more about Big Hero 6.  Just go see it.

I loved Aunt Cass's angry rant near the beginning.
