frankenweenie is not like an ordinary disney movie. I understand tim Burton helped direct it and believe me he is an amazing director but this, this i felt like they were rushed to make a halloween movie. I thought the whole black and white setting was really cool but some of the stuff to me was... weird. This movie is not for little kids I would recommend 9+ but any younger they will probably get nightmares. I wouldn't go see it, i really don't think it's worth it.

I wasn't sure whether to see Frankenweenie or Hotel Transylvania. Frankenweenie is dark, violent, and NOT for kids. I took my 8 yr old daughter and my 6 yr old twin boys and the kids couldn't handle it. Other kids in the theatre were crying as well. I should've known better...after all...it is Tim Burton! I personally think it's for 12 yrs old and up..should've gone to see Hotel Transylvania instead.

Took my two year old and three year to see this show and they loved every minute of it. They couldn't take their eyes off the movie. It was creative and heart felt.

Ok movie for 5 years + , my son thought it was very funny, he found there to be some boring parts where the movie dragged on a bit, but overall he liked the movie.
My 5 year old recommends going to see this movie.

The only reasons why I'm voting this as "Must Go" is because it was ten times better than Alice in Wonderland, which seemed too edited for Tim Burton and because there's nothing I would change about it. You know it's a Burton film as soon as it starts, which is why I particularly like his films. It's smart, funny, and creative. It's even dark, in Tim's own kind of way. I suggest you go see it.
Tip: You may compare this to ParaNorman, but I will be honest and say that I had much more fun seeing Frankenweenie than that. Just a tip for those trying to decide between the two, since I've heard friends debating.
