Munro Leaf and Robert Law­son’s clas­sic chil­dren’s pic­ture book about a mild-hearted bull who would rather smell the flow­ers than fight the mata­dor be­comes a de­light­ful an­i­mated ad­ven­ture and, save for the odd nar­ra­tive wob­ble, largely re­tains the orig­i­nal’s gen­tle charm and paci­fist mes­sage. Wrestler-turned-ac­tor John Cena makes an ideal big-softy as Fer­di­nand, and he is well paired with Satur­day Night Live’s Kate Mckin­non, who voices the daffy goat who dreams of be­ing his trainer. 2017, U,106MIN

IT WAS A SILLY GOAT WHO’D TAKE A BULL BY THE HORNS
