I agree with Kevin on this one. I don't think the movie is supposed to be escapist, but I do believe very whole-heartedly that Disney entertainment is at its worst when it is self-aware, self-referential and "hip and edgy". They need to return to childlike charm and humor. That's the magic that drew us into the Disney world in the first place.Short kicks out the voice and tells him to "go to the France pavilion, where they still like invisible narrators." This lame attempt at humor is risky because someday, presumably soon, France will update its own movie. But even more so than that, the movie tries to be "hip and edgy" by pronouncing itself self-aware. "I'm a movie in Epcot" it seemingly cries, "so I'll make jokes aboutbeing in Epcot!" Self-referential jokes work on Saturday Night Live or late night talk shows, but they have no place in Disney theme parks, where the whole point is escapism, not Brechtian alienation effects. We don't want to ripped out of the illusion, we want the illusion to be complete, the transformation and the transportation to another place and time to be earnest. Not ironic.
