Cute, scary for small children but good introduction to to the genera. Conservative families may not be so keen with the "lifestyles" mentioned but not explored. Too bad I can't give something in between a so-so and go.

Took to of my granddaughters and my wife. $40 for 3 drinks and 3 popcorns, One person at the ticket counter and one at the concession stand. Took over 20 min to get in and get our stuff. Theater was to warm and smelled. Will never go back to the AMC on Rainbow and Smoke Ranch in Las Vegas.

This movie is not just for children, but for adults as well. "ParNorman" is about a buy that noone in the town understands, you see, he can see the dead and everyone thinks he is crazy. Little do they know, he is the one boy that can save the town from raging zombies and a century old curse. This movie was terrific that it explained that everybody gets bullied at some point in their lives, but it is up to them to make the choice of whether you should stand up, or just be bullied your whole life. We have voices from Kodi Smit-McPhee (Norman Babcock), Tucker Albrizzi (Neil), Anna Kendrick (Courtney), Casey Affleck (Mitch), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Alvin), Leslie Mann (Sandra Babcock), Jeff Garlin (Perry Babcock), and John Goodman (Mr. Prenderghast). This movie could be scary for young kids, for the zombies and dark elements. Older kids will love it, and adults will also enjoy it. If you are a fan of Halloween and zombies, this is an awesome animated movie to get us in the mood.

Rating does not match

The movie was overall good, but the rating did not match content. Kids should not have to be asking their dad why would a boy date another boy. The rating was more appropriate for kids 13 and older. If you haven't taught your kids gay and straight yet, don't go to this movie unless you want it as an ice breaker.

ParaNorman

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.
