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.

A Must See!

To put it bluntly, my girlfriend and I are now fighting over the rights to call this our favorite movie. When it come to animated films, people tend to flock to the Disney-Pixar conglomerate productions; however, Sony Pictures has really outdone itself. This delightful menagerie of creative and artistic prowess has something to provide for viewers of all ages. For the young child, there is some good old sillyness, colorful swirls, as well as a virtuous message. For the pre-teen, there is action, and a whole lot of humor. For the young adult, as well as those past their prime, there are subtle parodies of well-known disaster and science fiction films such as Twister and Star Wars, as well as a genius blend of philosophical and social nuance. Furthermore, it transports us back to the rainy days as a child when we first read the book, and imagined ourselves in the magical world of raining food. Just a note of caution: don't watch this movie when you're hungry!
