Review body (optional)
Written September 01, 2012
My kids enjoyed it. But I am spoiled by the Pixar and Dreamworks movies that can make a cross adult/kid filled gap movie. I can say with hardly a hesitation that this could have possibly been the worst movie ever. I even asked my wife just for a sanity check, same feeling. Be that as it may, there was a woman actually weeping during it, but I boldly say that it has little to do as a compliment to the movie as much as the instability of said parent. I have seen 100s if not 1000s of movies, and this one is striving for pole position (I also disliked Jack Black's Gulliver's Travels pretty hard too).
PS: I cried during ET.

This is an amazing family movie that all families should see! I can't wait to see it again! My kids aged 9, 12, 15 loved it too. Go see it!

Beautiful movie, cinematography wise. Very sad, I cried (unusual for me). A bit "overstuffed" with side stories. The trouble at the pencil factory could have been left out, as well as the childhood disappointments with the grandfather.
Overall a good family movie, not so interesting for smaller children.
I would rate it a 6 on a 1 to 10 scale.

This was a really inspiring movie. It was funny at times, uplifting at others, and sometimes even strange. (In a good way). It was such a nice story with creative ideas and concepts. Great for the entire family.
