Toby Morgan is a young boy, but feels the loneliness of his strict grandmother and increasingly distant father. His discovery of the "magic attic" offers a safe haven where he finds a stuffed rabbit his mom left him before she passed away. His tears transform the rabbit into a playful animated Rabbit and his amazing animated adventures begin. Rabbit's one wish is become a real rabbit someday, and Toby's wish is to have a happy, supportive family again. Through lessons learned with the help of a Swan and Horse, and the transforming power of love, both wishes come true.
When I saw this movie, it had been years since I glanced at the kid's book the Velveteen Rabbit, and compared to my great memory of the book, I found the movie a little disappointing. But the movie is cute - and for the kids everyone lives happily everafter.
This movie I think had the absolute WORST line in movie history: "Greater love hath no toy than he than laid down his life for a child." I feel so bad for Tom Skerritt who had to say this line with a straight face. I cracked up hysterically and had to pause the movie to get my giggles out.
Despite being SO CORNY at times, this movie was actually quite touching and well-done.
