Is there room on the planet for feet of vastly different sizes? More important, will “Smallfoot” succeed in offering at least one song that sounds different from all its other original tunes? (Common gives the movie a much-needed jolt rapping “Let It Lie,” a song with the theme that some lies are good.)
The movie, directed by Karey Kirkpatrick, has just enough wit and visual invention to get by. (The “Bad Santa” team of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra are among those credited with the story.) But for all the hints of darkness around its edges, the film is ultimately like its heroes: cuddly, cute and harmless.
