Painfully awful, this is probably the worst big-budget animated feature ever made. It features, for your enjoyment, bad voice acting, lame animation (sometimes the characters lag, as if the animators’ computers crashed halfway through their work and they never noticed), and a senseless story concerning a wronged woman out to restore her family’s claim to the legendary throne of Camelot. David Foster’s one song ‘The Prayer’ (made famous by  and Andrea Boccelli) is the film’s only saving grace, but even it sticks out like a sore thumb considering Celine Dion’s French-accented singing voice doesn’t even closely match portraying the character’s speaking voice. Best to buy the lovely theme on CD, but not on this film’s soundtrack, as the rest of the songs are about as abysmal as the film itself. Even kids will turn away from this stinker.

Academy Award Nomination:  Best Original Song (“The Prayer”)
