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.

When you were younger and had a pet, particularly a dog, then you may rekindle past feelings. That's what I experienced. A boy's best friend was his dog, and when the day happened that his dog died, it makes you remember when your pet died too. Through what you already know from Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein," happens, you want to see and hear that familiar bark again. It's funny how animals can make us feel. Lastly, I saw it in 3D - however, not surprising, 2D is satisfactory enough.

I am a huge fan of Tim Burton and was pleasantly surprised that the entire movie done in black and white. This is a must see for all pet owners! It will most def tug at your heart strings and even make the dudes cry.
I was so happy to see Winona Ryder's name in the credits as Elsa!!!
Go see this movie! I feel it is appropriate for kids over the age of 7 or 8.

Took my 7 year old grandson and his 12 year old sister. Big mistake for the younger one! At the opening credits he said, "I don't want to watch this movie." He lasted through most of it, but we had to leave when things got really scarey. Another kid about the same age and his mom were leaving at the same time. Oh well.
