I was surprised at how dark the theme was for being a Disney movie. Of course, Disney makes great endings! Don't want to give it away. I loved the story line. Loved that it was in black and white. Made the movie very retro. Liked it very much.

Being a Nightmare Before Christmas fan, I was hoping to find more of the same, but this black and white film was more of a love letter to monster movies of yesteryear (and a beautifully done one at that), but it was pretty forgettable as far as kid entertainment goes. Usually, my kids leave the theater talking about the best parts of a film over and over, but this one left them nothing but one funny scene to remember. I was expecting great things, but like many family movies as of late, I found this one appealing more to adults than to kids.

Good hearted, but misunderstood nerd proves that good science takes heart. The national obssession with immortality is realized for a boys best friend. This movie kept me engaged throughout and is right up there with Rocky and Bullwinkle for intelligent social insight and irresistible whimsy! You do not need a kid to enjoy this movie.

I took my 17 yr old son and 4 yr old granddaughter to see this movie yesterday...I'm 57 and all 3 of us just loved it. We're all dog lovers in my family and I knew we would love this movie from just seeing the trailer. We love, in particular, weenie dogs and sadly lost our beloved Abbey, our dauchsund who passed away suddenly 3 yrs ago. I cried and laughed during this movie and loved the type of animation only Tim Burton and Disney could team up to create. As you can see from our age difference, this movie is for ALL ages to enjoy!
