‘Wonder Park’ review: This lazy ride lacks pure imagination

If “Marvel Park” have been a carnival attraction, it might be the merry-go-round. The animated film has animals, relentless positivity and probably the most predictable journey ever. You have to be not more than four ft tall to ride this one.

An amusement park, referred to as Wonderland, comes from the imagination of a lady named June (Brianna Denski) and her mother (Jennifer Garner). The entire neighborhood youngsters obsess over June’s detailed creation (she really builds a minipark) and the imaginary beasts that inhabit it, like Peanut (Norbert Leo Butz), a monkey who builds rides with a magical marker.

Nonetheless, when June’s mother will get sick (her actual sickness is left unsaid) and leaves residence for therapy, the depressed lady abandons her cherished creations for good.

Or does she? On a stroll by way of the forest, June stumbles on the actual brick-and-mortar Wonderland, and the very annoying speaking animals there inform her she wants to save lots of them from imminent destruction.

For a movie extolling the virtues of creativity and imagination, there’s not a lot of both to be discovered right here. The landscapes are lazy, and the voice work from humorous actors reminiscent of John Oliver, Mila Kunis and Kenan Thompson is unmemorable. Name it Six Flags Meh Journey.
