abominable movie review

When my girls and I saw the first Abominable trailer, we knew it was a movie we wanted to see. Unfortunately it never worked out for us to see it in theaters, so we were thrilled when DreamWorks sent us a copy on Blu-ray. This movie far exceeded my expectations — and I can see us watching it time and time again. 

My daughters are 6 and 8 years old and they LOVED this movie. They were glued to the television screen the entire time. My husband and I were right along with them. Sure, it was a bit predictable, it is a kids movie after all. However, it was very entertaining, and taught some great lifelong lessons.

After reading my spoiler free review, scroll down for my favorite Abominable quotes!

Predictable But Sweet

Abominable is a kids movie, and most kids movies are predictable. This one is too. I promised to keep this spoiler free, so I will, but just know that if you think something is going to happen, it probably will. However, the movie is still very entertaining. I laughed a lot, and even shed a few tears.

Lessons To Be Learned

Abominable is filled with good life lessons. Ones like believe in yourself, adventure is out there, and my personal favorite, family is important. It is a movie that will give you all the feels, and I think that families with younger children will really benefit from watching it.

Stunning To Watch

Probably my favorite thing about this movie is that it is truly stunning to watch. The animation is out of this world. There were several moments where I found myself looking at things in the background simply because they were gorgeous to look at. It is amazing to think how far animation has come.

Overall Thoughts

Abominable is extremely predictable, but still a fun ride for the whole family. It is the heartwarming tale of three kids and a yeti (sounds funny, I know). It reminds me a bit of Coco — but not nearly as good. Even with a predictable plot, Abominable is a movie I recommend families with young children watch at least once. Your kids will likely want to watch it over and over, but don’t worry parents, once will be enough for you.

My 10 Favorite Abominable Quotes

While watching Abominable, so many quotes stuck in my head. I was curled up with my kiddos and I ended up grabbing a piece of paper and writing some down. Yes, they resonated with me that much. 

“When Yi sets her mind on something, nothing is impossible.” – Jin

I love this quote so much. To me, it is really inspirational.

“I’m hit! Tell Nai Nai’s pork buns I loved them!” – Peng

Dying. Dead. Dying.

“I wish dad were here to see this.” – Yi

Cue ALL the tears.

“I will make sure you get home, back to your family.” – Yi

Sniff. Sniff.

“I just want to escape. Dad always wanted me to travel the world. Someday.” – Yi

I think we all feel like we just want to escape every now and then, don’t we?

“I have blueberries in places where blueberries shouldn’t be.” – Jin

Bahahaha…. one of my favorite parts from the trailer — and it holds up in the film!
