While an agreeable enough effort in most respects, pic is a bit dark and sombre to be terrifically appealing to kids, and could have used bigger doses of humour and music.

In this likable fable about growing up, learning teamwork and developing courage, three small creatures who dwell in Dapplewood, an idyllic forest, go on a far-flung quest for healing herbs to save the life of a dying friend.

Once Upon a Forest has a good heart - I liked the way it treated its themes - but the movie is kind of dumb.

Sounds good in practice but with a plot where very little happens and songs that really shouldn't have been included, sticking the kids in front of David Attenborough sounds much more appealing.
