Theo is an ordinary garden snail. He works 24/7 at the garden and dreams of someday racing in the Indianapolis 500, like his idol, Guy Gagne. One day, he gets into a freak accident when he gets sucked up into the supercharger of a street race car, fusing his DNA with Nitrous Oxide. Theo now has super-speed and calls himself Turbo. He makes friends with some more snails, a taco driver named Tito, and Tito’s friends, and together they go to Indianapolis so Turbo can compete in the Indy 500 and live his dream.

This movie, distributed by Dreamworks Animation, is filled with laughs and a lot of heart. I also think the storyline was very well-written. All of the film’s character’s were very funny, even though the minions from Despicable Me 2 are 10 times funnier. The film’s amazing cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luiz Guzman, Bill Hader, Michelle Rodriguez, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Maya Rudolph, Snoop Dogg, and Samuel L. Jackson. I would recommend this movie for kids 6 and up, because there are some things little kids might not understand. Overall the movie was funny and cute, but it was a little too short and is very predictable, too.

Here is the film’s site.

  1. Dearest Gal,
    I liked your review a lot. The movie seems like a great original idea! after all, words like ‘snail’ on the one hand and ‘racing’ and ‘turbo’ on the other seem like two grotesque opposites and, by themselves, may create extremely funny situations. I also saw the trailer and found the animation totally appealing. I am sure that you enjoyed the movie. Did you see it with Amit and Tom? even though you recommend it for kids over 6, I believe that Tomy would also enjoy it!
    Lots and lots of love,
