One Potato Review

Told in crummy, sometimes coffee-stained snapshots, with more than enough heart and modest humor to compensate for its appearance. There’s a spoiled little girl with too many stuffed toys at the beginning, and a bloomin’ big boss man toward the end, but it’s the completely believable companionship between Dougal, his fellow discards, and the guys who run the dump, that makes for a little piece of paradise in even the unlikeliest of places. Featuring a shaggy thing with one eye who turns out to be a really good surfer, and a message – “Sometimes bad things happen so that good things can happen” – that feels finally less expected than earned.
