went with so-so expectations from yet another kids movie. Seriously one of the best
animated films ever. Very good. I might even go see it in 3D. Not every movie deserves to be seen in 3D - I'll bet this one does...I'll let you know if I was wrong. Loved it!

We took our daughter to see this on Sunday. My husband was reluctant at first but decided to join us. We all LOVED it! It's a classic fantasy story of good v. evil. But, at the heart of it all, it's also about teamwork, love and family, and understanding the perspectives of others. There's a perfect blend of drama and comedy to make it worth watching for both children and adults. My daughter has been obsessed with the movie since we came home...might take her to see it again.

This was light enough fare that my 5-year old enjoyed it, and didn't have anything too violent for either kid. The different faerie creatures were very well done. I liked the storyline, but personally, and I know this varies from person to person, I would have preferred to have seen a bit more loss/sacrifice from some major characters. Even with that quibble, really, this movie wasn't intended for my age. It's not Howl's Moving Castle or Spirited Away.
Yes, it was sufficiently fun that I had a good time watching it (better than the Guardians/Holiday one from December), but the kids had a better time, and I couldn't ask for more on a rainy holiday weekend. Anytime we leave the theatre with uneaten popcorn because they were too busy with the show is money well spent.

I took my daughter for a mother daughter date; she loved it. The movie was very cute, and had a unique storyline. My daughter wants to see it again.

IT was an enjoyable movie. The children sat and watched in amazement.I love how they make the character's have mannerism's of the actor's voice that is portraying them.I wish we would have heard more of Beyonce singing. It was a feel good movie.
