Hit and Miss

This film suffers from uneven plotting, and an identity crisis: is it supposed to be funny, creepy, heartwarming or scary? It seems to try to be all of them, and in the process fails to truly be any of them. It needed more humor (i.e., more Edgar, and more of the new teacher). The beginning was engaging, with a lot of character interaction. The middle was plodding and dull at times. The end was a traditional monster movie. I can't say it's for little kids, given the deaths and monsters, and it wouldn't hold their attention anyway. I'd say this one is really only for Tim Burton fans.

Typical Tim Burton fun

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.

Nouveau classic!!!

As always, Tim Burton delivers!! This review may border on biased, as I am a fan of Tim Burton. The movie was wonderful in a sense of that it had the action and excitement of horror flix of yesteryear. From the Professor that reminds me of (and I am sure a lot of other who remember) Vincent Price. To steal a term from Scooby Doo cartoons, it hall the usual suspects of "groovy ghoulies". Elsa Van Helsig was adorable, especially bc she was played by Winona Ryder. The movie will be an instant classic and I am sure you will be able to buy over-priced memorabilia at Disneyland and Downtown Disney. MUST GO!!!

Clever Flim but may be too much for young children

It was a very good movie! We had a blast with my nephew and my husband and I are Burton fans. But there are situations and topics that may not be great for the young ones. It's Burton baby. You pretty much know what you're in for when you go in. Just keep that in mind.

slow story line, black and white--not a hit for 4 and 6yr old boys

Just a very average movie. Boys were disappointed. Did not keep their attention. Not a terrbile movie, but would not recommend for younger viewers. As an adult, I was bored as well.
