The film centers on a poor girl named Angelica who works for her stepmother and step-sisters. They travel the RMS Titanic along with other passengers, such as a detective, two clumsy burglars, a family of mice, and a rapping dog. She then meets a rich man named William, who is traveling with his nanny to America. Angelica and William meet in the hallway the fall in love instantly. As their relationship grows, the Titanic meets its fate and strikes an iceberg.
The ship starts to sink, and Angelica is separated from William during the evacuation. She makes it to a lifeboat and watches the sinking of the Titanic, fearing that William did not survive the sinking. It is then reveled that William's nanny is Angelica's mother, and they find William alive. An epilogue shows that Angelica and William married and lived "happily ever after"; although Molly (the Singer), Captain Smith, Jeremy McFlannel, and Winnie die in the sinking.
The film was released in 2001 in Italy and Canada, making copies of the movie hard to find. In 2009, the whole movie was released on YouTube, recieving a large amount of critisism.
Reasons for criticism EditThe movie has been called offensive because of the so-called "happily ever after" ending, making people think that the maker of the film missed the tragic event of the setting of the film. There are many rip-offs of Disney movies, including: the Cinderella-like story and the fact that the dalmatians in the film have almost the same appearance as the dalmatians in 101 Dalmatians and poor animation and recycling of audio and animation are also issues.
The poor animation can be seen throughout the movie, but especially seen in the scene where the gate to third class is opened during the sinking and two women are seen moving in place, but not walking.
The American cut has been very notorious amongst filmgoers for how different it was compared to the Italian cut. One example is the scene where Fritz, instead of telling Maxie to check with him when he decides to go off on his own, immediately sings his song, which has been infamously changed to a song called "Party Time", which had not been featured in the Italian dub.
