Don’t you hate it when unnecessary characters like this are added just for the sake of saving the “damsel in distress” at dramatic junctures?

Foil to the main character, love interest, etc —I understand the reasons, but they were all uncalled for. Coraline did well by herself in the novel, she wasn’t in need of some head-tilted-to-one-side scruffy boy to complement her snappish self. Then again, Coraline in the book wasn’t at all bossy and irritating to begin with.

Animation-wise, Coraline was definitely a feast for the eyes but I just felt that the heart of the original story went missing in the translation to moving pictures. Maybe I had expected too much..
