Your enjoyment will depend a lot on your tolerance for morality plays and a generous heaping of sentimentality. This is the kind of piece that hammers you on the head with the message of helping those in need, yet makes you feel hardhearted for rolling your eyes at it. In fact, the best word I can use to sum it up is “sweet.” It is the kind of show I think would be great for kids — teaching them the importance of selflessness and empathy.

For the discerning adult, however, this candy-coated shell can feel tiresome and a bit dishonest.
