Why they didn't leave Dad's lower half with Mom, I'll never understand.

Also the McElroys should have tried to get cameos in this movie instead.

Was it any good? I love animation and Tom Holland, but I've read this is just ok. Is there anything great about it?

My six year old loved this, I really enjoyed it. As a father of two boys it was effective in making me cry. It is basically your odd couple road trip as per standard Pixar, but it at least makes a bit of an effort to actually have some active female characters, with the mum having a (much smaller) role to play.

The thing that got me is that the central conceit is that magic is hard work so the world switches to technology instead, but honestly it didn't seem that hard, and was able to accomplish lots of things technology couldn't.
