Academy Award winner for Best Animated Feature in 2011 and the first-ever animated film made by George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic, this family-friendly installment of the Briscoe’s Comedic West film series stars Johnny Depp as a pet chameleon who gets stranded in a small Mojave Desert town where water is scarce and danger lurks around every corner. When it first came out, I dubbed the film, which includes a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas reference, as a kind of imaginative tribute to a movie genre from which kids would benefit.
