Fun. Smiles all around. I was damned impressed by the visuals in "Ratatouille", but this far surpassed them. In fact, some really obvious, welcome inspiration from the good folks who did the special effects for "Firefly" -- the camera jitter, unsteady zooms, finding of focus that made the "Firefly"/"Serenity" CGI work seem so real.

Gets a 10 from me. Almost lost a point due to excessive "Hello Dolly", but gained it back thanks to smart use of Sigourney Weaver.
