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.

Fantastic classic-era Tim Burton fun, even by Disney

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 loved this movie. It was great to see the friendship of a boy and his dog, and how a dog is your forever friend. I cried but also smiled during the movie.

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.

Not for kids

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.
