Lilo is a little girl in Hawaii who adopts a dog who is actually... an alien, a quite evil alien to be precise. You see, Stitch is a criminal who was being transported to an intergalactic prison whose ship crashed on Earth, and he is posing as a dog to escape detection from the alien police who are now looking for him...

One of the most highly anticipated Disney animated films in years and possibly the one that can save traditional animation at Disney, Lilo & Stitch enters theaters after a lot of buzz. But will that buzz help bring in the kids and beat out Tom Cruise's Minority Report?

The story tells of the escape of Experiment 626 from the Galactic Federation and how he lands on the Hawaiian islands. Mistaken for a dog, a misunderstood girl named Lilo adopts him and dubs him Stitch. But the Galactic Federation is out to get Experiment 626 before he destroys everything in site, which is what he is programmed to do. The story is very well done though it is kind of slow at the beginning. Lilo & Stitch is different from most Disney animated films and that is what makes it unique. The story holds up much better then Disney's last animated attempt Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Stitch may look ugly but he isn't. He's "just cute and fluffy!" At least that is what he says. Stitch is certainly more different then any Disney character before him but that is why he is so loveable. Lilo is one of the most down to Earth animated characters ever. She is a typical six year old who is cute and weird but also has a sort of dark side. The aliens are the main character problem since they are a variety of them but not a lot are unique to the audience but with films like Men In Black and Evolution, it is becoming harder to come up with unique aliens.

Overall, Lilo & Stitch is a pure Disney gem and should be up there with the classics. It has tons of humor that mixes well with heart-warming storytelling and delightful characters. This has to be one of the most different Disney animated films but Disney needs change to keep up with its ever changing audience. There were some problems with the story starting off sort of slow and some moments probably being too intense for some smaller children. But parents should be aware that the film is rated PG and shold be trusted to take precautions. This is definitely one of the best comedy's of the year and should definitely be considered for next year's Oscar for Best Animated Film of the Year.

My Rating: ****1/2 out of 5

Disney's answer to Warner Brothers' the Tansmainan Devil is a wacky alien named Stitch, and in the movie "Lilo and Stitch," he is a lab experiment gone wrong, who escaped to Earth, only to befriended by a little girl named Lilo, who lives with her sister.

Watching Stitch is half the fun of this movie. Disney has created another memorable character who is fun to watch. The film is both funny and touching. The film also pays tribute to Elvis Presley. This is Disney's way of saying they're sorry for that awful 1988 film "Heartbreak Hotel."

If I were to tell you anything, it would be to see the movie on the big screen.
I just love to see movies that are larger than life.

I read one review complaning about the art work of the film was weak. He said that this film proved that the golden age of disney was over, as an artist myself (a good one at that) this review is wrong.

The only proplem with the movie, that is not being believable is that, lilo is not scared when first meeting stitch and wants him to be her dog. this though you can get past quickly. the end result is that you will laugh, cry and simply injoy the movie, the end.
