If you are looking for a heartwarming movie the whole family can watch then you have found it in DreamWorks Abominable. When a teenage girl, Yi (Chloe Bennet), finds a hurt young Yeti on her roof it sets her off on a magical adventure of a lifetime. Naming him Everest (Joseph Izzo), Yi decides to help get him home even though there are people, Mr. Burnish (Eddie Izzard) and Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) looking to capture him at all costs. Joining her quest to get Everest home are her neighbors Peng (Albert Tsai) and Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainer). Their wild adventure teaches them about each other, the importance of family, and that maybe Everest wasn’t the only one who was lost. The story, music, and animation of Abominable are beautiful. While it does have a couple of slightly tense scenes humor is placed just right to relieve any tension almost immediately. The characters of Peng, Jin, and Nai Nai (Tzai Chin) are the standouts for this film and will have you laughing till the end. Abominable is rated PG, but it is a movie for all ages. I give Abominable a B+. Opens 9/27/2019. Whoop! (R. Barry)
