    Part of the reason I love this film is that I have absolutely no idea why Disney decided to produce it, let alone give it a nationwide theatrical release.

    I like to think the filmmakers seriously had their hearts set on simply having the babies go to Japan, but, try as they might, they just couldn't think any landmarks famous enough for Spike to piss on.
