Under The Same Moon Review


Terrible
"Somewhere Out There," the maudlin theme song to Disney's animated An American Tail, is audio torture. It's not just Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram's warbling.

After an especially nasty argument with Elena, Alejandro leaves his estate to get some space and to save some more peasant families. Several days later, he's handed divorce papers and a reason to start drinking.
