Movie Lilo & Stitch (2002)

20140206:
A movie about family and friendship, Lilo & Stitch is a fun and thrilling Disney movie. I would easily recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys films made by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

"Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten."

Thinking my little cousin would enjoy the film, I put it on for her while I worked. Of course, what mainly ended up happening was I got distracted and watched most of the movie while she mainly watched YouTube videos on her mom's iPad.

Although I didn't get to fully watch the film, I'd say Lilo & Stitch has some of the best moments, but as a whole falls short of competing with some of the best.

Stitch, Nani, and Lilo
Plus, as I've mentioned time and time again, I'll have a bias towards the Disney musicals (e.g., The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin).

I've certainly seen this movie once before, but my guess is I've seen it at least twice before due to my familiarity with the essential lines.
