Turbo

Dreamworks' new animated film Turbo is going to redefine the term "moving at a snail's pace for audiences," when you see this snail that dreams when it comes to how fast he can go. Turbo (voiced by Ryan Reynolds)  spends his evenings watching NASCAR and dreaming of roaring across the finish line first - the only problem? Well, he's a snail, they're not exactly known for their lightning speed. Turbo's obsession with speed gets him kicked out of his village, but when he gets a jolt from a hot rod's turbo booster it gives him the natural talent he needs to zip across any finish line.Taco vendor brothers Tito and Angelo spy his natural talent and pluck him out of obscurity hoping he'll be their ticket to fame and fortune, they set off for the Indy 500 with a set of wacky snails in tow cheering him on.

The Bottom Line

Turbo is being released by Dreamworks right on the heels of their box office smash hit The Croods as a fun summer romp that's guaranteed to make all the slow pokes feel good. As always, Dreamworks animation is unparalleled, and the expressions on the snails faces will be enough to set you off laughing.

Some of the tenderest moments in the film are Turbo's relationship with his brother Chet (Paul Giammatti) who dotes on him, not to mention the hilarious crew that goes with Turbo to the Indy 500 - just trust us when we say that White Shadow (Mike Bell) is one of our fave characters, as well as the super cool Whip Lash (Samuel L. Jackson.) Turbo doesn't have as much punch as some of the other animated films that have been released this year, but it has enough high points and funny moments that it's worth a watch.

My fave book(s) is/are the Dork Diary set. It's about a girl who transfers to a new school on a scholarship but she has lots of drama and excitement along the way. The girl is called Nikki Maxwell and her bet friends are Zoe and Chloe. Her crush is a boy named Brandon and her arch-nemesis is Mackenzie. It's a diary and there are 9 reading books, 1 about how to dork you diary up, 2 about where you write your own diary and 1 about how to be a DORK! [s:sm3/1jw1]
