I laughed, I cried, I smiled, I winced...all with a goofy grin splattered across my face. 'Frankenweenie' is a refreshing blend of child and adult humour throughout the film. I so very much enjoyed the classic styling of the film...I've missed seeing Tim Burton films and this was a great one!

I really liked it. I am a really big Tim Burton fan, so my opinion may be biased, but I loved the B&W effect, the story, the characters, and the eerie ghoulishness. If you have seen Burton's early films of Victor and Frankenweenie (short version, non-animated) and can appreicate them, then you will enjoy this movie.
One thing to keep in mind for kids is that although the movie is not scary it does have a couple sad moments that could upset young children under 5-7 (approx.). I guess just use your judgement when it comes to taking kids to see this movie.

Frankenweenie was a great Halloween mood setter. Typical Burton animated characters blended into an awesome homage to the 50s horror genre. This isn't the classic of Nightmare Before Christmas, but it is very entertaining and even a little tear jerking at times. This is NOT a children's film and though it isn't overly graphic, some scenes will be tough on the kids. OK for maybe 13 and up. Must Go for Tim Burton fans, Go for everyone else.

I like it! I took my 11 year old twins and we really enjoyed it. It was a bit short,but it was worth it. I say go see it, it will make you laugh. I sure did.

This movie was sad for my 9 y/o and scary for my 7 y/o. I think that this movie should be rated pg-13. I wouldn't recommend taking small children to see this movie.
