Pull the other one, man!

Atheist Philip Pullman's book The Golden Compass got turned into a movie, On Golden Pond or some such.

From the review by Stephanie Zacharek in salon.com:

There's also a giant warrior bear, Iorek Byrnison (his voice belongs to Ian McKellen), the most believable of the movie's fake-looking talking animals: He's a soulful creature who has endured much suffering, although not as much as this movie puts us through.

I just wonder if this one is best left alone, like the rats one of our three dogs occasionally insists on leaving mortally wounded beneath our trampoline.
