Monsters vs Aliens (2009)

Dreamworks animated flicks, while they possess impressive artwork and creativity, lack the heart and dramatic story-telling that flows from Pixar studios. Monsters vs Aliens supports this.

A codependent bride gets zapped by some freak radioactive beam and becomes a giant (really, really big) amazonian woman. She is taken captive by a secret government agency and then used with other "monsters" to fight an alien invasion. She finds inner strength through this process rather than finding her identity in her weather man groom.

The other monsters were funny and Ginomica (the big chick) will certainly cause some girls to fret about body image, but the story lacked resonance.
