Oh dear.  Um...yes, well...I think that sort of stuff has been run past us before, and the Talking Animals are getting almost as ...cutsie-poo doesn't REALLY express it...as the Sidekicks of Saturday morning in the 70's.
      This isn't to say that with an effort towards good animation, MUCH better timing; say, between Shrek 1 and 2, and taking out the cute loser animals and some probable script tightening...it might have been adequate.

What makes or breaks this genre is familiarity with the original tales and apreciation of the effort that it took to make the film.

    No effort from them, no apreciation from us
   
I wanted a trendy signature, but I wasn't fast enough.

What distinguishes a movie like Shrek is that they've managed the trick of taking a story that's entertaining for kids, and overlaying it with a veneer of irony and pop-culture references that adults can enjoy [I'm not sure what movie started down this path of two-level sophistication, but the Shrek franchise has managed it quite well so far].

It's actually possible this movie will entertain kids, while alienating adults whose expectations are higher than they used to be.  I showed the trailer to my kids, and they were interested...we'll just have to figure out who has to take them to see it.
