Almost all of the members of the Madrigal family have special powers - the boy can communicate with animals, one of the girls has super strength, another can grow flowers, etc. - with the exception of Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz) who continues to get on her Grandmother's nerves when she starts having visions of doom and has to seek out her Uncle Bruno (John Leguizamo) - who's been banished for being a mad prophet - to find out what to do to save the day.  It's quite colorful and chipper, and while I should be grateful Disney is still making animated movies (instead of just doing a live action version of something in their catalog), it's also pandering, corny and a complete distortion of realismo mágico.  It only acquires a sense of actual "humanity" when Bruno finally shows up, whose hermit-like behavior (he pals around with rats) is pitiable, and it shows what families do when they're not openly bragging about themselves: they're keeping their weirdos stuck in a Tomb Raider-esque labyrinth.
