Love is blind to the rules of tradition, opposites attract, and both clichés apply quite nicely to the wolves inAlpha and Omega. In the wolf world, the pack values the omega wolves' skill of defusing tense situations with humor just as much as they value the keen leadership skills of the alpha wolves, but tradition dictates that alpha wolves don't mate with omega wolves. So, when the all-business alpha wolf Kate (Hayden Panettiere) and the fun-seeking omega wolf Humphrey (Justin Long) find themselves attracted to one another, the pair resign themselves to a life apart, and Kate agrees to a match with alpha male Garth (Chris Carmack) from a rival pack in order to peacefully merge the two packs into one. But when Humphrey and Kate are tranquilized in their home in Jasper National Forest, Canada, and relocated to Sawtooth Forest far away in Idaho, the two discover that not only can opposites work very well together, but that neither of them can continue to ignore their attraction for the other. The question is, will working together, combined with a little help from a golf-playing goose and his duck caddy, be enough to get the pair all the way back to Jasper National Park before the rival wolf packs tear one another apart at the next full moon? And what will become of their relationship if they do return in time? This animated 3-D film is amusing and entertaining, if not particularly outstanding. A lot of the humor is pretty corny and the plot has been done many times before (thinkOpen Season 2), but the characters are likable, the action is pretty good, and who can resist chuckling at images like a retired, golf-playing French-Canadian goose or the distractive powers of a good cupcake?

Howl, my love, howl!
Predictable!   The love stories between 2 pairs of wolves, Humphrey & Kate + Garth & Lilly.            It's action packed and the themes are love, territorial rights, leadership, responsibility, friendship and being transported to foreign lands. What is interesting is how music is being infused effectively into the film. In fact, many animation films rely on this medium to leave a lasting impression and to generate different kinds of …

"Alpha and Omega" is a cute, harmless, disposable animated film, something the kids may enjoy during its ninety-minute run but then forget about as soon as they get home. I appreciated it from a technical standpoint - the animation is decent, the color scheme is vivid, the vocal performances are competent - but I didn't get all that much out of the story or the characterizations, both of which are a little too innocuous for my taste. Not to sound presumptuous, but I suspect I speak …
