Lilo & Stitch (2002)

Though a bold step forward for Hawaiian representation in mass-media with fine ohana themes, L&S’ animation feels comparatively-shoddy, lowbrow, and dated – alongside a creature of gross-out gags more juvenile and primitive than the vast majority of other Disney pictures. 4/10.

Plot Synopsis: A tale of a young girl’s close encounter with the galaxy’s most wanted extraterrestrial. Lilo is a lonely Hawaiian girl who adopts a small ugly “dog,” whom she names Stitch. Stitch would be the perfect pet if he weren’t in reality a genetic experiment who has escaped from an alien planet and crash-landed on Earth. Through her love, faith and unwavering belief in ohana, the Hawaiian concept of family, Lilo helps unlock Stitch’s heart and gives him the ability to care for someone else.
