My family and I enjoyed this movie. Yes it does not have a deep plot, but this simple story made me cry! More movies should be about family bonds and love. It is cute enough so the little kids can enjoy it. The animation is excellent for the teens and adult to appreciate it. It is original and creative. Don't listen to the critics. If you want to have a good time, go see this movie!

I enjoyed the movie and had a couple laughs. There were also moments I wanted to smack my face against the floor repeatedly because the dialogue/situations were so cliche and awkward. Dreamworks once again comes in behind Disney and Pixar with a good family movie without much that sets it apart from the hundreds out there on dvd. Unless your children really want to go to the movies, rent a dvd of a much better film like Ice Age. If you're going to the movies anyway and need a kid flick to watch, this one the kids will love and you'll enjoy but quietly hope your kid won't want to see it again.

Took my 2 kids to see it Sunday evening. They loved it and so did I. Well done, fast-paced, didn't feel overly dramatic or drawn out.

Adorable movie the kids will love. Have gone to see it twice. Wouldn't be surprised if the kids talk me into going again. Kids 3, 3, (Twins) 9, and 11
