The movie for me ended up being two times better than the waste of space DC League of Super Pets even though I feel the animation lacked some needed excitement draw. The animation will play well with children a little bit older than the Paw Patrol gang that will like DC League of Super Pets but it is a little bit far off the ones that will crave Disney’s type of Encanto. The animation tried in its fantasy-based story and brings us into another side of the world where good luck and bad luck are made. We see how they get dispersed randomly all over the world.

The animation graphics is not so jump at you great – as a matter of fact I believe they could have done way better. When you consider the production cost of $140 million, you wonder how they can make a dance sequence look like something from those B-movie animated Barbie shows.

Also, the story was tamed down to a level where you can lose interest so easily, I do think it beats some of the trash we get thrown at us too often, but for such a budget I expected better. What works for this movie will be the voice acting and the way they show how good luck can make you jump of a cliff knowing something will happen before you hit the ground flat. Then you will like when bad luck tries it and breaks his neck.

The movie shows us a home for girls where we see Sam and Hazel making a dance video. Sam and Hazel are close with Sam now 18-years-old and needs to leave the home as she is now an adult. A social worker was there to give her an apartment and a job as she is now going to be on her own. Sam is sad to leave the home and Hazel behind. Hazel is only like 8-year-old and Sam doesn’t want her to be alone.

Sam siting down on the sidewalk someday after another day of bad luck at work, and almost getting killed, saw a hungry cat. The cat seems to be craving food and sat next to Sam who shared her food with it. The cat runs off and Sam saw undeath where the cat sat a penny. She took it and behold! Her days changed that night and even the next morning. She was amazing at work and went through like a whole day with no mishap or bad luck. She wanted to give the penny to her friend Hazel, so that she can get lucky and be adopted by a great family. But Sam’s bad luck found a way of finding her and she flushed the coin down the toilet. In her beating herself up on her way home she ran into the cat. While talking to herself about what happened the cat gasped and spoke in outrage that Sam flushed the coin down the toilet. The cat runs off when he discovered his mess up for speaking and Sam chased it, soon they were both in the world were good luck and bad luck is being made. They both now come to an understanding, Bob (the cat) will help Sam find a coin so she can take it to Hazel and Sam will leave his world and never come back.

In the end, I enjoyed the movie a bit, but still felt if I had something else to do I will not be watching this on Apple TV+.
