What a cash cow for the movie industry.
Think about it. What percentage of CGI movies released in the last decade do you think feature humanized animals?
I sorta like movies like this, but at this point it's simply become a genuine 00's cliche.
The only CGI movies I can think of that have been released in the past 8 years that do not have animals are Robots and Cars, and both were great.
People even rip each other off over this stuff. The Wild was a shockingly blatant ripoff of Madagascar, Shark Tale was a ripoff of Finding Nemo, and Hoodwinked was a blatant ripoff of Shrek.
Who else is ready for something more original?
