A couple parts that actually brought tears to my eyes because I have a dog and it touched my heart! But we really enjoyed the movie and would see it again!
If you're not a fan of Tim Burton's work, you may not like this film.

This is a really good movie. Fantastic animation, and a Disney-ized telling of Frankenstein. Try something different, take your kids and watch them enjoy a story with a lot more depth. It's truly entertaining.

Disney spent a lot of money advertising this movie. From the various trailers I thought I knew what the story was about. But I still laugh when the kids did crazy things with the science project. The only segment of the movie that the trailer did not give away was in the last 15 minutes.
To me the story has some similarity with Ted which I found equally funny. Both dealt with a boy/man and his relationship with his best friend. But Frankenweenie is definitely a lot suitable for children than Ted is.
If you watch many movies this year and saw bits and pieces of the trailer, I can only say that this movie is not what you'd expect. You know what is going to happen but you don't really know why or how until you watch it. I believe this is the best children's movie this year.

Not one of Burton's best, but still a fun movie to see with the family. Although it might be too scary for kids under 7, my 8 and 11 year old had a good time.

Took my 9yo daughter to see it in IMAX quality. Movie is a fun show, with a dark undertone. Again, typical of Burton. My 9yo kept saying Gross, but laughed throughout.
Good show. Don't waste the extra money on IMAX though. In fact, 3D is probably overkill on this one. Just my opinion though.
