All Shook Up

A little Hawaiian girl and her sister adopt a destructive mutant in Lilo & Stitch

Somewhere outside the Magic Kingdom, there are bored people. Blissfully unaware of the suits who design the multiplex fodder they'll be mentally munching, these people discover a movie about a pug-nosed and pugnacious little Hawaiian girl bearing the boy's name of Lilo (voiced by Daveigh Chase) and her barely adult sister and guardian, Nani (Tia Carrere), who accidentally adopt a massively destructive galactic mutant named Experiment 626 (co-director Christopher Michael Sanders), which they assume to be a weird dog and name Stitch. As the sisters' parentless home is threatened by a determined social worker named Cobra Bubbles (Ving Rhames) and Stitch is hunted by his literally four-eyed alien maker, Jumba Jookiba (Disney fave David Ogden Stiers), we get copious giggles and insistent messages about the importance of family--or, in Hawaiian, ohana. As if it weren't already weird enough, the movie also proudly wears an Elvis fetish. When the chuckles subside, this slyly packaged show's all about integrity, identity and community--the goals of anyone who's all shook up.
