Me and the wife watched this recently. She pretty much cries at any Disney film so was expecting the worst after all the build up.
All I can say is 'meh'... pretty average. The wife says she only got a lump in her throat at one point, but other than that just thought it was an 'ok' film, which pretty much echoed my thoughts.
I really don't see why people are getting so emotionally affected by this film.
