I so wanted to love this movie...but unfortunately there are too many issues with it to move past my disappointment. This film is best left to the under 9-yrs-old set who will love the witty (re-hashed 1000X plot lines/twists/music) dialogue and fun characters they have not met before. For parents, I recommend paying the sitter to take the kids!

This was a very enjoyable movie. It was avenger-like, but adorable and funny and taught a valuable lesson. No awkward revelations here! :-) I will be sure to add this to my DVD collection.

This is a GREAT family movie. My 10-year old son and I went to this movie and it was wonderful. It was funny and heartfelt. Keeps the mystery in all of the holidays.

Rent it

This was definitely a different kids' movie. I loved the premise - a fairly tough Santa, an Australian Easter Bunny with a boomerang, Jack Frost trying to accept his past - but the movie was dark. The boogeyman was somewhat scary, but not so much that little kids can't go. My five year old liked the fight scenes and the characters were interesting, but not at all endearing. There is virtually no comedic aspects of this movie and the one female character, the Toothfairy (not so adorably nicknamed "Tooth") was not tough, and the "tough" Sandman is just strange. Rise of the Guardians is a great movie in theory, but misses the mark - the tough characters aren't tough enough and the comedy isn't funny enough, if there at all. Overall, high expectations, so-so delivery.

Family fun

We were afraid our 5 year old would be scared, but he left excited because he now knows who to believe in. It was a fun movie, my husband and I even had a great time.
