Flick Friday-Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

***Disclosure-Sample copy was received to review.  All opinions stated are my own based on personal experience.

The weather has dropped.  Today Friday is suppose to be the coldest day for us here in Houston.  What do you love to do when the weather drops?  We like to curl up in the bed or on the couch.  We like to watch movies with the family.  You don't have to be out in this weather just grab a new movie and make it a movie night today.

Here is my Friday Flick pick:

This fall, step inside the imaginative story book world of the highly popular French novel La Mécanique du Cœur (The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart) and beguiled by  the wildly inventive adventures of Jack and Miss Acacia as they leap from page to the screen. Release last month by Shout! Factory, in collaboration with EuropaCorp.  

It was released in DVD, two-disc Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital) and Digital HD
  This movie is so cute.  There a lot of great animation.  A love story of adventure.  It was funny and sad.  It is a little Frenchy.  I won't ruin the movie for you.  

 JACK AND THE CUCKOO-CLOCK HEART is set in the late 19th century Edinburgh, where little Jack is born on a day so cold that his heart remains frozen. Madeleine the midwife saves his life by inserting a cuckoo clock in place of his defective heart. It will work, she warns him, as long as Jack observes three golden rules. First of all, he must never touch the hands of the clock. Secondly, he must control his anger. And last, but certainly not least, he must never, ever fall in love. The moment Jack sets eyes on a young girl singing on a street corner, the hands of his clock-heart begin to race. Desperate to find her again, Jack launches himself into a romantic quest that will lead him from the lochs of Scotland, to the city of Paris and all the way to Andalusia.

 I recommend for a family night with the older kiddos.
