    I feel so bad for those elephants, it seems like such a tedious time they’re having. I think the pace and rhythm of Pratchett’s dialogue works brilliantly on the page but can come across kind of flat and self-conscious when it’s spoken. I’ll still watch this animated adaptation one day, just because, but from this it looks pretty unconvincing. He’s got a great voice for that kind of joke though.
