The Unicorn Store


Rating: TV-PG

Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yes.

Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Yeah.

Language: Not much. Really just a few uses of s**t.

Sex/Romance: Nope!

Violence/Gore: No.

Music: The music really took this movie to another level. It was ethereal and magical and reminded me of a carnival/circus for some reason...

Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterwards? : No.

Was there a food pairing? : Yes, Kraft mac n cheese that did not live up to expectations.

Thoughts: When I started this movie I guess I was expecting something kind of in the vein of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." This was not in that vein. It was cute, and the music was magical, but in the end the movie just...left me wanting. And not in the way Walter Mitty left me wanting to take off and travel the world, it just left me wanting more from the film? After it ended I probably looked a little like this -

And I'm sure there was probably some deeper meaning that I was missing, but if I missed it then did the film really do its job? The movie often was a 1/8 step off from reality and it gave me a weird feeling like I couldn't tell if they were trying to caricaturize reality, mock reality, poke fun at reality, or what.

Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Eh. Sure, I guess.

In the End: 2 out of 5 stars, the music was magical and the friendship was sweet, but I wish there had been a bit more of a point/resolution.
