Digital monsters (Digimon) that befriend humans are the subject of this three-segment animated film. In the first segment, a cute creature is hatched from a large egg that emerges from a computer and surprises its young owners by morphing into a spectacular creature. Segment two finds the owners, or the Digidestined, in a race to save the world when an evil Digimon morphs and takes over the Internet and telephone lines, eats the data pertinent to major cities, and even infiltrates the United States' nuclear weapons system. The Digidestined and their respective Digimon--who can change shape and morph into fantastic creatures capable of great speed and destruction--must determine the best way to defeat this killer virus. Part three finds the Digidestined working together again to defeat a virus that has turned a Digimon to the dark side. Ultimately, DIGIMON: THE MOVIE, which is based on the popular Animé television show, promotes teamwork and reminds children that they can make a difference in the world. The contemporary soundtrack is an added bonus, featuring Barenaked Ladies, Smashmouth, Fatboy Slim, Len, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
