Review: PETER RABBIT / EARLY MAN

Peter Rabbit and his three sisters -- Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail -- enjoy spending their days in Mr. McGregor's vegetable garden. When one of McGregor's relatives suddenly moves in, he's less than thrilled to discover a family of rabbits in his new home. A battle of wills soon breaks out as the new owner hatches scheme after scheme to get rid of Peter -- a resourceful rabbit who proves to be a worthy and wily opponent.

Walt Disney initially considered doing an adaption of the Peter Rabbit books after the release of SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS in 1937, but author Beatrix Potter turned down the offer. (IMDB)

A plucky caveman named Dug, his sidekick Hognob and the rest of their tribe face a grave threat to their simple existence. Lord Nooth plans to take over their land and transform it into a giant mine, forcing Dug and his clan to dig for precious metals. Not ready to go down without a fight, Dug and Hognob must unite their people in an epic quest to defeat a mighty enemy -- the Bronze Age.

One of the commentators at the final match describes Dug's team as "Early Man united," a reference to the Manchester United football team in England. Goona's name is a play on "gooner," a slang term for fans of Arsenal - another English team and a long-standing rival of Manchester United. (IMDB)
