Movie Review: Life of Pi

The movie, Life of Pi, is an excellent movie about  the adventures of a young man, Pi Patel, whose family owned a zoo.  When the zoo needed to be shut down, his family sold the animals and left India to move to Canada to start a new life.  The ship that he and the animals were sailing in went down, and it is the story of his survival on the ocean along with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.  I thought the animals in this movie were delightful.  That is the story Pi tells, but the real story is a bit more complicated.  Pi was really a chocolate cream pie who was trying to avoid being eaten.  He hooked up with the gingerbread man, and they sailed on a ship to avoid the humans who thought they looked "delicious".  There was a shipwreck and the pie and the gingerbread man had quite an adventure trying to keep from being eaten by sharks and, of course, the possibility of spoiling in the hot sun.  I can't tell you if they made it or not, but you can watch the movie and see for yourself.  I give this movie 4 paws up, a tail wag, some kisses, and some doggy slobber--those desserts did look good!  It is a 10 out of 10 on the human movie scale.  Be sure and have some snacks available when you watch this movie if watching food makes you hungry!
