The third of the week's films with voice-overs . are 'live' actors slowly being replaced by clay and computer figures?

That said, this is the weakest of the trio; a film that comes across as charmless and poorly realised, with no originality.

At opposite ends of the wolf pack's social scale, Humphrey (Long) and Kate (Panettiere) are moved from their natural habitat - she, meanwhile, having been promised in 'marriage' to the leader of another pack - and must team up to find their way home . and discover love along the way.

But all of this doesn't even manage to be sweetly twee, merely annoying. Even the kiddies will find it all rather boring.

Star Rating: 2/5
