This was one of my favorite books growing up, and I hate when the movie is nothing like the book, but I actually enjoyed this movie. I took my 4 year old to see it opening day (his first time going to a movie too!). The only similarity between the book and the movie is that there's food falling from the sky. I think the animation quality was awesome, the flow of the story was good enough that you don't get bored, and there was some pretty good humor too. I loved Steve and I couldn't believe when I saw that Neil Patrick Harris did his voice! If you have kids, I think it's worth taking them to see.

Great movie, better than I expected. My 2 kids (9 and 11) loved it.

I liked the overall movie, however, the two curse words used, I thought could have been omitted all together. It's a kids movie, they just seemed unnecessary.

Took our three grandchildren ages 4, 8, 11 to see the movie. Even though it didn't really follow the book too closely all three grandkids were enthralled. The youngest even forgot to eat his candy.
This is a must go for kids.
