"The best thing is Earl's ears" - a review by pearly

Show and Tell is about shy, nerdy Earl. Today is his day for show and tell. He is sure that he's going to a big failure with all the kids, but he pulls item after item from his bag and the kids are more and more on his side - he has become king of show and tell!

The computer-generated animation techniques for this little story are quite sophisticated. The story is narrated with a Dr Seuss style poem, with it beginning:

Earl's day began with the old school bell
He groaned: "there's nothing worse than show and tell"
He slouched low in his chair and tried to hide
When his name was called he felt sick inside

This film is very slick and a lot of fun - it would be bound to appeal to kids, as its content appears to be aimed at them.

pearly gives this movie 6 out of 10.

If I won 11 Best Director Oscars but Jack Palance accidentally read out Marisa Tomei's name when I won 4 of those Best Director Oscars, how many Best Director Oscars did I actually take home?
