My seven year old son liked it well enough, but I felt the movie was rushed with very little character development to speak of. But the movie wasn't made for me. Kids seem to enjoy it, but I think this one would be better for home viewing.

I was really hoping for a great animated movie like Monsters vs Aliens or Despicable Me etc. For me, this movie, despite the great slew of acting talent, just didn't draw me in. The story was ok, the voices were good, but the animation just wasn't there for me. I would say rent this one.

Slow, unfunny start had me wishing I could escape the theater, but ended up being a surprisingly good movie. Step-daughter liked it. Adults liked it. Fun characters. Fun movie.

I took my great nephews who are 4 1/2 & 8. Thy both enjoyed it as did myself and their father. It was cute and adorable and not scary. The kids are always afraid of anything scary. We all Had fun at this one & their attention stayed throughout the movie.

This movie started out a little slow, and at first I was thinking - Great, this is another kids movie that with a poor plot and quickly brought to theaters to make money. Not the case at all. After the first 15 minutes or so, the plot really came out and My 5 year old was completely captivated - sometimes he was laughing so hard, he was shaking. I really enjoyed this.
