There is an Animal Crossing film that was never released outside of Japan. Fan translations are available on the internet, but anyone who's ever played an Animal Crossing game could make sense of it even without the dialogue. To give this article a hint of authenticity, I've been watching it with the subtitles off.
I'm not sure whether I'd reccomend it or not. It's very much a film of the game - a young girl moves into The Village of Doctor Moreau, is indentured by Tom Nook, makes friends with her wacky neighbours and eats some fruit. It's really lovely to see all the furry little goons going about their daily lives, but I feel your time might be better spent playing the game.
I suppose people have made similar comments about many terrible game films. The difference here is that Animal Crossing is a good film, but its characters have such unusually strong charm and personality in the game that the film doesn't really add much to them. All of the characters and stories explored in this film can emerge from within the game, with the added touch that you are personally responsible for upsetting Mr. Resetti, or paying off that bloody mortgage. That said, if you're a fan of the games then you'd probably get a kick out of the film, obviously.
The Animal Crossing games are all really lovely and brilliant and the 3DS one is out next year and now you can build your own paths, guy! 10/10
