Uninspired ParaNorman

A visually satisfying movie should not have a script that consists of a string of cliches. Alas, "ParaNorman" is too scary for kids and too tiresome for grownups. The enthusiastic reviews puzzle me. I can't recommend this film.

Witless plot, dialogue, and characters had the quality, charm, and entertainment value of an annoying saturday morning cartoon. The last five minutes were redeeming and had value, but not enough to make up for the 95% you have to suffer through to fi-nal-ly get there.

Funny movie, but not for children under age 15.

Not for children under 15. Has several choice words, references to sex and homosexuality. The movie would frighten young kids and leave most under 15 with questions or awkward comments. It is a funny movie for older teens and adults.

The trailers on this are somewhat misleading. While it has some very comical excerpts and had the kids laughing, there are some dark corners that might not be appropriate for smaller children. Halfway through, I found myself debating whether or not to stay....I had taken friends of my grandson so was very concerned about the content and the affect it might have on the children. There are some good themes in this movie and the message was not completely lost, but it is not exactly age appropriate for elementary children and I think it lacks the interest from the middle school children that it might be aimed at or are more mature to understand.
