In a place far, far away, illegal genetic experiment #626 is detected: Ruthless scientist Dr. Jumba Jookiba has created a strong, intelligent, nearly indestructible and aggressive being with only one known weakness: The high density of his body makes it impossible for the experiment to swim in water. The scientist is sentenced to jail by the Grand Council of the Galactic Federation. The experiment is supposed to be transported to a prison asteroid, yet manages to escape Captain Gantu, who was supposed to deliver him there. With a stolen police cruiser (the red one), the destructive being races towards a little and already doomed planet: Earth. Stranded on Hawaii, experiment #626 can’t actually do much harm: water all around, no big cities and two well-equipped representatives of the Galactic Federation already following close behind to catch him again. But Dr. Jookiba and the Earth expert Pleakley never could have guessed that earth girl Lilo adopts the experiment as dog, gives him...
I love this movie. I wish I had seen it in the theaters, it would have ben great. I found this movie really fun and well done. My parents had no interest in seeing it :rolleyes: But I got them to watch it, and they loved it :D I went out and bought it the same week in came out on vhs.
This movie was not funny.
LILO & STITCH (2002)


--I liked some of the interaction between Lilo & her sister. It's great to see they're keeping some of the dramatic realism in Disney flicks these days.

--The film has a great send-off, featuring a bravura action finale that never lets up. I was immensely entertained by the ending, if only it hadn't taken so damn long to get there.

--Stitch is a very cool character, the dude just kicks ass! His voice rocks, he's animated very well (it's all about his neat-o colours) and I loved the way his ears pricked up or down to signify the way he was feeling. When he gets the awesome scenes he's deserves, it makes seeing the movie more worthwhile.

--"Ohana means means no one gets left behind or forgotten." A sweet message, important to the world these days I think. I liked the way the ugly duckling picture book was used in conjunction with this moral.


--I think I was just expecting something completely different (and much better) to what I got from "Lilo & Stitch". From the ads, trailers, posters and so on, "Lilo & Stitch" was made out to be a mock of Disney films, including many characters from past films such as "Aladdin" and "Beauty and the Beast". No Disney characters were ever referenced, and it wasn't a spoof. So why the hell did they plaster the Disney characters all over the frickin' poster and have trailers/teasers that had nothing to do with this movie AT ALL? It is the most frustrating thing about this movie.

--To be frank, I was bored in the first half of this film. Just didn't interest me all that much.

--The scenes in space had SO MUCH potential to be funny and entertaining, but they are so dull and there aren't enough of them to warrant interest. These scenes make it a little more obvious that all the producers were really trying to do with "Lilo & Stitch" was make another family movie with a message.

--The movie lacks menacing or funny villains, the one's we got were dull, annoying and uninteresting.


6/10 - Probably the most mammoth disappointment in 2002. It did have its qualities, but it sucks how they were few and far between.

Lilo & Stitch
Cartoon- It has been a while since i saw a kids' movie. The last was A Bug's Life, and I liked it a lot. So the years went by and all I saw coming out were loads of crappy kids' movies like The Country Bears and Spririt: Stallion of the Cimmaron. As I read their apocalyptic reviews (happily I didn't see any of these movies) there were two things that ran through my head: "Wha' happen'?" and "Damn we are going to have a dumb next generation."
Out of all this garbagio only three movies seemed to hold promise in this doomed genre: Spirited Away, Finding Nemo, and Lilo & Stitch. Well, the first two I've yet to see, and unfortunately I was conned into the latter by a friend who thought it was cute beyond measure. It really, by this point didn't look like anything I'd enjoy, and Gigolo Joe, whad'ya know, I hated every torturing, mind-flogging moment of it.
Lilo is like a nugget of poo that you insert into your DVD player and let flatulate out of the screen. I was trapped by its noxious fumes. I closed my eyes, but no matter where I turned my head, its suffocating stupidity flattened my intellect like a monster sized garlic press. Only one other movie ever did that to me (Godzilla vs. Megalon) and I like Godzilla otherwise and was able to make fun of it while I wacthed it. Not so with Lilo. My brain cells were fried.
This turd is 90 minutes of pure mean jokes, dumb accents, cankled little cartoon brats, terrible music, and headache inducing yelling and bitching. How this is considered funny evades me. Seeing a fat alien waving a gun around while blabbing in a bad Russian accent, or hearing a bitchy Hawaiian gal call somebody a "stupid head" and then kicking their car, or watching a Peter Lorre-sounding Stitch demolish a house all seemed to be considered cute among critics and my friends. To me it was just flat out mean. And it nearly gave me deathly spasms of pain.
What really bugs me about all this is that it puts it in little kids' heads that being a brat is OK. What ever happend to the good old Disney?! I don't even want to be around little kids who've seen this movie now. Heck, I don't want to be around any if Lilo & Stitch is the benchmark for other "family movies."
How this got to be such a hit with critics and audiences I don't get. I wish I was conned into Spirited Away. That looked better. (G)

Apart from the analysis of revenge and identity in The Lion King, Lilo and Stitch is probably Disney's most sopisticated thematic endeavor. Too bad our good friends at Disney had to run out of ideas on this project, and couldn't support with the imagination they used to possess the advanced issues that could have made Lilo and Stitch great.
Anyway, this is the story of the banishment of Experiment 626 from his native world- he is somewhat of a berserker- and the lonely and troubled girl named Lilo- who desires to be understood by friends and her sister- he finds on Earth. They meet at the pound (626 poses as a dog, and, mistaking him for one, Lilo buys him), and the liveliness and restlessness that they share allow them to become quick friends.
It is the backdrop for Lilo's story that makes Lilo and Stitch so interesting, though. She lives with her sister Nani (parents departed) on one of Hawaii's islands, and is facing relocation if their social worker finds enough evidence to release Lilo from Nani's care. This awkward situation is reason enough for Lilo to tear about in fits of rage, but when she is cast out by her friends and distanced from her sister, who is also fighting this harsh reality, she crawls into an even bigger hole. Her only solace is found in Stitch, her ideal counterpart, and, while the little alien manages to make the situation worse for the sisters at certain points throughout the film, they learn together what a family really is: sticking together and looking out for each other. The movie returns to this and the custody issue a lot, contributing to how it is one of the best representations of a broken family being mended that I've seen on screen. Too bad it had to get so silly.
Not saying that silly is bad. There were some hilariously brilliant moments throughout the film ("That's not a real name... in Iceland!" had me rolling). And I'm not meaning to rag on Stitch (the name Lilo affectionately plants on Experiment 626), who really is a star and a genius in physical comedy, but the thing is that, well, he's an alien. And he's being chased through the Hawaiian Islands by other aliens who want to quarantee his uncageable energy and preprogrammed desire for destruction. No, aliens just don't work well in this film. As much as I understand that creating an alien like Stitch could be the only way to come up with the perfect destruction machine, sending a whole fleet of aliens after him just throws the amazing premise into ridiculum. We even get a Star Wars-like spaceship chase. *sigh* Aliens...
*shakes head*
Maybe I don't have any imagination or sense of fantasy, but the way I see it, the absurdity of the antics that transpire throughout this lighthearted alien romp bring down the potential of this film. Too bad, because I was happy to be exposed to something so fresh from Disney...
Coulda been a contender...
A disappointed **1/2 /*****

Another comment to its side, however; the artistry was totally cool and captured the Polynesian and Tropical atmosphere amazingly well.
Robin Hood

Either it was made on the cheap or on the fly, but there were many parts of this movie which were obvious shortcuts, ie. reusing shots or animation. I guess they figured kids wouldn't notice. I think I did when I was younger. Not so sure. But the story is great, songs are great. The movie has a nice whimsy to it, interesting voice acting, and nothing seems overplayed to me.

Lilo & Stitch

Beautiful film. Love the colors, animation of Stitch and Lilo was so well conceived. Everything else moves really interestingly. I like how the big characters, like Stitch's maker, take big, lumbering, round steps. Story was pretty good, touching, I liked the interaction between Lilo and Nani. One thing that potentially bothered me was how easily it went from capturing Stitch to saving Lilo. Stitch's maker just changed his mind, but at least it was played off with a good joke.

Emperor's New Groove

Having seen "The Sweatbox", the behind-the-scenes documentary video chronicling how this movie went through a complete story rewrite, I'd say it came out pretty good. I liked the characters, the comedy was pretty sharp. Simple backgrounds and sets served it well enough.
I loved this movie, many people say it was a little boring but i don't think so at all. Crispin Glover did an amazing job. I've only seen him in this movie and "Back to the Future", and have loved his work so far. "Willard" is a very emotional movie about Willards life and the only friends he has, THE RATS!
Just excellent. I fell in love with the characters.. most of all, Stitch.
ok, first off, I was brought this movie by my girlfriend (ty baby), she said I have to see this film, now I've not brought a disney flick since aladin (I miss that film..) but being a Anime/Manga fan I'm not opposed to cartoons.. (I even watch saturday morning television) but when I first sat down watching this movie I could not stop from laughing, the deadpan humour when lilo tells some guy that pudge controls the weather cracks me up to this day, I can watch this film daily and it still loses none of it's appeal... and I love the fact they clamly state he took the only red police cruiser...
but I gotta fall out or I'll ruin the entire story and quote it to death... *RAWR* ;)
(Mood: Good)
Here's a few in my collection for the rated-movies list.

Lilo & Stitch (2002)
Superb and unique Disney animated feature with a fresh storyline and an awesome main character. I saw this a few times in the theater. A high 9/10 which would work out to a very high ***.5/**** or just into the ****/**** range.

Stitch! The Movie (2003)
Direct-to-DVD sequel that doubled as the pilot to the Lilo & Stitch TV series (which I've seen only one episode of, despite my interest in the franchise), and geared toward the kids. Pretty weak compared to the movie, but still worth taking a look at if you're a fan of the series. The closing-credits song gets a major :down: from me, but more Stitch is always a good thing. I'm a bit biased because of my interest in the franchise, so maybe a 7/10 or a low ***/****.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
One word: incredible. These along with ROTK have become some of my all-time favorites. Both get 10/10 or ****/****.
Best in Show: Lilo
One for the future: (Unfortunately) inferior straight to DVD sequels from Disney
Stand-out scene: Hammock schmaltz
Brainer or no-brainer: No brainer
Stands up to one viewing or repeated?: Repeated
DVD commentary any good?: n/a

The meaningful storylining and constant invention of both Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke has , I'm afraid, rendered all non-Japanese animation (other than The Iron Giant/Titan AE to think of two) below par for me. As enjoyable as this was it's not in the same stratosphere as the two aforementioned classics. Even its Presley-tinged soundtrack and 'no hard edges' animation policy fails to make this special, and it came as no surprise yesterday when I came across a newspaper article saying that Disney is looking East for inspiration. With Dreamworks also making advancements in the medium on their home soil, Disney have been caught resting on their laurels when they should have been moving with the times. Here, instead of getting a story that challenges and surprises, once again we get a strictly formulaic version of the now worn-out stock Disney screenplay. Stitch, the result of alien genetic experimentation, escapes his creators and commandeers a spaceship which he crashlands on Earth. Hawaii to be precise. There, he narrowly avoids ending up as roadkill and winds up in an animal rescue centre. There he is chosen by orphan Lilo as a pet. Lilo, on the verge of being taken into care away from her Aunt, proceeds to win over the tantrum-prone A.L.F. with a little bit of help from Elvis. While the presence of The King's music can only be a plus point, the plot is as predictable as it is tame and the array of comedy sidekicks has you longing for a Hawaiian spirit to materialise and do away with the lot of them. Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch is being released this year. Disney, you really can do better.

Lilo & Stitch is the story of a little girl, Lilo, who is coping with the loss of both parents due to a car accident. She must adjust to a life where her older sister now handles the dual responsibility of parent and sister. Nani, Lilo's older sister, is struggling with the duties of being Lilo's guardian, disciplinarian, and maintaining a steady job. This is further complicated when an alien, Stitch, is adopted by Lilo as the family pet. Stitch is a genetic experiment. The purpose of his creation, destroy all things, especially large cities. He is indestructible by all but water, as his mass is too dense for water. Nevertheless, when you have a "broken family" that is struggling to keep the social worker from taking Lilo away and you add the recipe for disaster in Stitch, the stage is set for what is left of a family to be torn apart once again.

"She likes your butt and fancy hair. I know, I read her diary."

Dean DeBlois, writer of Mulan, and Chris Sanders, worked in the art department for Beauty and the Beast, and worked in production department of The Lion King, codirect Lilo & Stitch. I believe they did a fantastic job of creating a real life situation of what can happen to a family in Nani and Lilo's situation. They create a real life scenario, but still make the film enjoyable to children. This must have been a tough balancing act, but it was brilliantly on display. The characters were also real. Lilo was a child who was happy sometimes, sad sometimes, depressed, frustrated, irritable, and displayed a full range of emotions, which does not usually happen in cartoons.

"You are being charged with illegal genetic experimenting."

Lilo & Stitch is an underrated film in my opinion. The films that make the most noise in today's society are the Pixar films with three dimension art, which I also love. The fact Lilo & Stitch is a cartoon vs. the Pixar art of The Incredibles does not make it a lesser film, just a different type of cartoon. Lilo & Stitch still depicts real life situations, and many of lifes important lessons. I believe this is a must have film, and a better, more entertaining cartoon then the more popular Finding Nemo and Monster's Inc.

"He will be drawn to large cities where he will back-up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone's left shoe."

Grade: A
very cute
All the film's elements are very good and combine well to make a fun movie to watch. The plot is interesting, funny, and has a nice lesson in it about family and accepting those who are different. The soundtrack is good, combining classical overtures with Elvis Presley tunes. Good animation and voice work.
