Nat Wolff replaces Dane DeHaan as Victor in the American release of the film. DeHaan voices Victor in the original version of the film. See more »
In the movie, it shows both (in Paris) a nearly completed Statue of Liberty and the start of the construction of the Eiffel Tower. In reality, these two world'famous landmarks were never in the same continent at the same time. The Statue of Liberty was given to the United States in 1886, before the start of the Eiffel Tower's construction, which commenced in 1887 (and was completed in 1889). Both were constructed by Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel. But Eiffel only started construction work on the tower bearing his name after the Statue of Liberty has been shipped to the United States.

Uh, no, no, no, no, no. Sorry. I'm... friendly, ever so friendly. And my name is Camille.
Okay. I'm Nora, but everyone calls me... Nora. That's... the name that goes with MY face.
Hey, you should warm up.

I saw this just few days ago in a local theater. In brief:
The good: + Great visuals + Nice music + Cool story
The bad: - Teen pop in a music about classical ballet! - Daisy Dukes-like pants in a 1900 France?
So generally I enjoyed the movie. It is sort of Cinderella story. My little one did not wanted to see it, so I went alone. However, this is a movie about classical ballet. There are few moments, where they actually are supposed to dance on a classical music background, so in the beginning of the movie there is a scene with the music from Swan Lake, in the middle of the movie there is a ballet school with classical music background and in the end, the final scene is supposed to be showing The Nutcracker, however on this one they play (*drumroll please*) ... CHEESY TEEN POP!!! Yep, that's right - we get ballerinas dancing ballet, supposedly on the music of the Nutcracker, but instead there is some cheesy teen pop! This is the major fail I talk about. Seriously, you cannot ruin a movie in such a bad way normally. No idea what talent you need to come up with such a stupid idea. Instead play the Nutcracker music for a minute until the credits start to flow, then transition to the teen pop. Would be much better, but no - they failed it. Also - in 1900 France they show us a girl wearing leggings and something similar to daisy dukes on top. Hellooooo? Reality check here? There is no such a girl, even in Paris in 1900s which would wear such a thing.
But again - in general the movie is fun and amusing, despite the few horrible moments I mentioned. It is also little surreal, as they show some pretty cool flying, but it's a cartoon after all, so I don't mind the daisy dukes so much (but I seriously do mind the music!).
Bring your kids, enjoy!
