"The animation was “OK” but at times lacked fluidity and seemed “stiff” in comparison to Pixar work or Shrek." I think the animation in Shrek is solid, but nowhere near Pixar's level. Compared to Monsters, Inc., Shrek is like a puppet show. The stiffness you see in SharkTale is par for the course when it comes to PDI/DreamWorks films. The money SharkTale is making is sort of baffling -- I don't know anyone who really likes the movie, and this thing has outgrossed Sky Captain in little more than 48 hours.
