As opposed to what, "Pokemon 3: The Dinner Theater?" This installment of the interminable franchise has a young girl, who's father has disappeared, turning her surroundings into a land of icy crystal. Ash, Pikachu and the other Pokemon (Pokemen?) show up to save the day with various pocket monster battles. Lessons are learned, battles are fought and won or lost, and days are saved, except for the days wasted by parents who have to sit throught it all.
