If you liked Coraline, ParaNorman is worth seeing on the big screen

As a fan of the movie Coraline, I wanted to see ParaNorman in 3D - before it is no longer in theaters. The 3D was ok, probably just as good in 2D. Story held together, with many memorable characters. It is unfair to compare Coraline to ParaNorman - they are entirely different stories, both are wonderful. However, if I had to pick one of these, Coraline is my favorite. ParaNorman is probably too scary for very young children, although none of the little ones seemed unduly frightened during the screening that I attended. I highly recommend ParaNorman, see it before it disappears!

A New Halloween Classic

Interesting stop-motion animation; refreshing change from the Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks SKG clean, nice animated worlds. Great themes (it's ok to be different and just because you're bullied doesn't give you the right to bully others) and loved the twist at the end! A sweet movie with some humor, creepiness and heart.

Brought my children to see this last night. So boring that they starting asking me when it was going to be over within 10 minutes of the movie starting. Waste of $80. Don't bother.

For Kids (or adults who love stories and animation)

I loved this movie, and was entranced by the style of animation. It wasn't the dreamworks standard animation, and it wasn't wallace and grommit claymation, it appeared as though all the little action figures you played with as a kid came to life. It was better than anything Tim Burton has done in animation since creating Jack Skellington. Very cute and made primarily for kids (although there are some very random adult jokes they hopefully don't catch on to) and has a very Disney-esque storyline.
