It's not the best animated movie I've ever seen, but it made me laugh and smile lots of times. The plot was basic, the characters lovable, the dialogue cute but not very clever. The visuals however are in a new class. The animators did an oscar worth job and this show is worth seeing for the animation alone. The show is good, the performances are rock solid, the story is predictable and just sweet. One of the few shows I think really deserves to be seen in a theater.

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.

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.

Wonderful movie for kids and adults. Plenty of laughter and exciting scenes plus a little teary eye sentimental part. Overall this was one of the better kids movies I have seen. I would give it a 9 out of 10.
Must go see.

I was so worried that this was going to be one of those movies where they had shown all the good parts in the trailers and the rest of movie was going to suck...it wasn't. At it's most basic, it's just a great story about a family and their daily struggles, that just happens to be animated. But on top of that it's just so imaginative and funny!
