Mulan (1998)

by Chris Parry

"If I was eleven years old, I'd see it again. I would."
4 stars

Some people thought Hercules was awesome. I didn't. If you did, you'll fart bubbles at Mulan.

Mulan is the story of a cross-dressing asian girl (hey, it's Disney, they can do that) who decides to honor her father by pretending to be a warrior and helping the Chinese defend against the Mongols.

The film looks gorgeous. Well animated, beautifully drawn, some of the shots are Imax-ish in the extreme. It's funny and it includes the voices of Donnie Osmond, Pat Morita and Eddie Murphy.

Yes, yes, the same Eddie Murphy who likes cross-dressing whores to suck his.. toes.. only to have them die a month later in a bizarre window-falling accident, wants to entertain your kiddies. Again, this is a Disney film, they can do that kind of thing. And surprise, surprise, Eddie doesn't stink.

Mulan is a good date flick. Heck, I got some when I saw it.
It has enough suspense and humor to entertain the kids, yet also enough to keep adults busy (when they aren't... otherwise occupied).

Grab some popcorn, grab your date and enjoy.
