IT’S THE LIT­TLE THINGS THAT DON’T RE­ALLY COUNT, US, 93 MIN

This mid­dling car­toon for chil­dren is nei­ther good nor bad. It just hap­pens along in an ami­ably bland fash­ion. Con­sid­er­ing the voice tal­ent that signed for the pro­duc­tion – led by names such as Chan­ning Ta­tum, Danny DeVito, Zen­daya, James Cor­den and, umm, Le­Bron James – more ef­fort could have been made to leave a last­ing im­pres­sion. Ta­tum stars as Migo, a mas­sive yeti whose undis­cov­ered com­mu­nity high in the sky is buzzing with ru­mours that the sup­pos­edly imag­i­nary crea­ture known as a “small­foot” – oth­er­wise called a hu­man be­ing – might ac­tu­ally ex­ist. When Migo lets slip he might have met one, he is ban­ished, and won’t ever be let back in un­til he comes up with some ev­i­dence. Af­ter get­ting off to a mildly en­gag­ing start, the vibe ta­pers down to av­er­age. Pre-school­ers and pri­mary school­ers will be best served here by an easy-to-fol­low story and stacks of

Ice Age- style an­tics.
