LEAP!

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.
Over the holidays my boys and I had the privilege of watching the all new movie Leap!
  Sadly we were not impressed, and I really wanted to be.  This movie lacked a good story line and likeable characters.  Overall it was very lackluster-ed.  The plot was kind of all over the place and even the funny parts just seemed out of place.

About the movie:

Eleven-year-old orphan Félicie (Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend, Victor (Wolff), an imaginative, exuberant boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own — to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But there’s a catch: Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Ziegler). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Jepsen), who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.

Truly we watched this film once and now I will most likely give it away or let it collect dust on a shelf.  I wanted to like this movie, they had the potential to be something really good....  But in the end it all just fell flat
