      Rosana B É bonitinho, na verdade é chatinho, mas gostei da parte do Halloween, são várias histórias dentro de uma só, vários acontecimentos, o que o torna menos entediante, legalzinho... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/11/22 Full Review Audience Member I loved it as a kid, but I don't know if I would as much now. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review r 9 Thankfully better than 'Recess: All Growed Down', but 'Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade' is still a bit of a chore to watch. This again features a couple of different stories, though to be fair their integration into the film is much improved if still a bit messy. The cast are as they've always been, solid but not exactly memorable. Animation-wise it's decent. This is more on the level of 'Recess Christmas: Miracle On Third Street', yet still miles off 'Recess: School's Out'. I simply don't understand why they didn't create three unique stories for these sequels, as they did for the original production. Compiled stories are, in my opinion, lazy. Not a series of films that I'll be revisiting, but they are ones that have pretty respectable ratings across a few platforms so it seems I'm in the minority. Each to their own, as always! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Recess: Taking the fifth grade is a Disney film based on the Disney animated serise Recess directed by Howy Parkins. Very good voice acting from the main cast. Very good and fun characters. Steady cinematography. Good animation with a unique style. Good setting with the school. Good style with the colour scheme to the character design. Steady sound design. Good and funny dialogue. Steady editing. Steady background music. A good story that can be relatable to some people. Really good comedy that has me laughing out loud especially toward the beginning. The film is also very enjoyable. There are a couple of things but there mainly just nit picks. Over all I give it a 6/10 - worth a watch Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The charming kids from the Third Street School graduate to the fifth grade in the final chapter of the "Recess" series. TJ and his buddies protest changes at the school when the curmudgeonly Miss Finster is promoted to fifth grade as their teacher and the Board of Education plans to pave over their beloved playground. Voices include Rickey D'Shon Collins, Jason Davis, Myles Jeffrey. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member As I all ways say The TV show Rhesus rocks!
