I took my 8-yr-old son to see this movie because we didn't want to be in the house during the baby shower my wife was hosting. Should have endured the baby shower.
This movie seemed to be a story written to show-off 3D effects but even the 3D effects were boring. The current Guardians (Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, & Sandman) can't defeat Pitch without enlisting the help of another non-Guardian? Gee where have I heard that story before? Oh yeah. Hercules! Most animated movies have something to entertain the adults e.g. "inside" jokes or celebrity voices. This movie had neither. A story line that wasn't so predictable would have been nice; 15 minutes into this movie I was ready to leave. If I hadn't gotten these tickets for free I would have been really angry. The best thing about this movie were the elves but they were just a rip-off of the minions from "Despicable Me."
Skip this movie, you won't regret it.

Took my 4 1/2 year old grandson to see this. It was his first 3D movie.
I was a little concerned that it might frighten him, but he loved it. He was even a bit upset when the movie was over. I wanted to take a picture of him watching the movie with his 3D glasses on but of course it was to dark.

Had some good graphics, some laughs and was enjoyable by both children and adults. Not too scary for the little ones, but not boring for the adults either. I recommend as a great family film.

I really liked the movie. It's so much better than the animated movies I've seen before. There was the good vs. bad in the movie and it showed about working together is the right thing to do. The 3-D effects were pretty good, too. I'm really glad that I went to see it with my brother and his son. It was a fast moving movie, too, which is usually really good with kids.

Saw this with my teenagers, and we really enjoyed it. Good story, terrific animation, 3D was nice but not overwhelming. We payed full price, and it was worth it for the 3D effects.
