I am looking forward to seeing the movie, but I am hoping it doesn't turn into a Finding Nemo or 101 Dalmatians where everyone runs out and buys sugar gliders.

I have edited a fact sheet (it's at the printers now) that I am dropping off at the movie theaters in my area.

Hopefully they will find my news paper articles and my small piece in Madison Magazine and do their homework.

My fact sheet sends them to research here and on Facebook at ABC'S and 123's pus the Wisconsin Sugar Glider Group.

My small column.

I saw the preview to the movie and thought it would be cool to have a sugar glider. lets hope the little guy gets more then one scene.

Is it me, or did the animators kind of change the looks of the glider?

They are difficult to draw especially if done from pictures and not from first hand observation.

So I haven't seen this yet. Was it any good? And how many times did the sugar glider show up?

Mary and I liked it, but I guess you have to be young or old to like it. The reviews for it are poor.

Yes you see the sugar glider. The first scene it has isn't accurate at all and I will not spoil it for you. Go see the movie.

I'll wait till it's out on DVD. I'm not a fan of movie theaters.

Saw this yesterday and it was delightful. Not as good as the original Rex Harrison movie (although the CGI was a welcome upgrade from the obvious costumes and puppets in the original) but much better than the Eddie Murphy versions. Mimi the sugar glider isn't seen a lot and her movements/gliding are modeled incorrectly but she does have a rather critical role. Downey's attempt at an accent is abysmal but he does a great job conveying the doctor's eccentricities. Banderas is fantastic as the pirate captain/king.

The showing I went to was lightly attended and attendees were quiet/respectful so it was an enjoyable experience (sometimes a movie audience can be so loud or obnoxious that I'd rather wait and watch at home).

I loved Mimi's scene where she is wet,even though it was very inaccurate, it was cute.
