Just a little too cloudy...

I took 5 kids, ages 4-11, to see this movie; all of them were very excited to see it - including me! On the positive side, the messages were good, appropriate and relevant - success shouldn't be measured on what others think of you, be true to yourself and embrace the person you are, and greed is bad and ugly. The only (and big) negative is that this movie was too long - the pace was very slow and the story dragged. I found myself spacing out as the story played out and the kids were getting antsy as well. The movie wasn't holding the attention of anyone in our group - about a half an hour in, the 4 year old started asking me how much longer the movie was going to take. When the kids really enjoy a movie, they go on about it after we leave the theater - with this movie, they all told me they liked it and then never spoke about it again. So, while it was a good story with great messages, I would say this movie is just okay, probably better left for a rainy day video rental.

My daughter loved the movie, especially the scene with the jello. I got a few chuckles myself.

This is a movie the entire family will enjoy. There is quite a bit of humor here for children, teens and adults alike. It would seem to me that the creators of the movie took great care to create a movie that would appeal to a broad audience. I sat in front of a group of teens who loved the movie. Before I saw the movie, I saw an interview where the directors stated that they actually studies how food bounces. It was great to see that not every bit of food fell the same way. Mr. T plays one of our characters and is great. When his son wakes up for his birthday, he wakes up to something magical. I heard everyone in the theater ooh and ahh at the sight of it. It took them back to childhood innocence. This is definitely a must see movie this year. If you haven't already, go see it. You won't regret it.
