It was - odd, quirky, charming, delightful, sweet, and played well, with best performances by the hero Sam, played by Jared Gillman and Suzy played by Kara Hatward.
Anyone who wants to laugh and just retreat for a while into this wacky and charming kingdom won't be disappointed.

Movie for young teens to watch about a boy who does not fit in. Bit of a farce on the Boy Scouts. NOTE: On the Boy Scouts, they broke "every rule in the book". It is not about Boy Scouts, it is about a tween boy.

Cute if you are a kid. Silly plot...and no...Bruce Willis and Bill Murray were not at their best, despite what the advertisement wants you to believe.

This critical "darling" has some fun performances but suffers from slow pacing and an overall sense of it's own importance. Based on all the rave reviews I expected more but was ultimately disappointed. "Moonrise Kingdom" dares the audience *not* to like it...as if to do so would say more about the viewer's lack of artistic taste and less about the fact that the movie isn't very good.

I seldom feel tempted to actually walk out of a movie, but this one takes the cake. It was the most ridiculous, boring excuse for entertainment I've every agonized through (unfortunately, I had no choice but to stay since we were meeting friends afterwards.) How this gets any good reviews is beyond me. I'd been forewarned but figured how bad could it be....now I know!
