In this Bel­gian- made com­puter an­i­ma­tion, a kit­ten, a rab­bit, a mouse, and a bunch of liv­ing toys unite to scare off po­ten­tial house buy­ers after the el­derly ma­gi­cian who owns their home is hos­pi­talised. There are el­e­ments of Beetle­juice, a hefty por­tion of Home Alone, and the sapi­ent toys in­evitably evoke Toy Story. We said: “The most im­pres­sive thing about it is how good it looks, with a hand­some de­sign and an ap­peal­ingly cute fe­line. The ac­tion rushes about the house, of­ten at cat height. It’s just a shame the story’s so un­ad­ven­tur­ous, and only re­ally picks up for the wreck­ing ball fi­nale.”
