Cute

I took my 5 and 8 year old to see this. The 3D wasn't over the top and added a nice kick to the film. At some points, the kids were reaching out to the screen to "touch" it. That always makes me smile. The story is sweet. Not a tear-jerker, more of a "go, you can do it" movie. There's a brother character (Paul Giamatti) who isn't so sympathetic, so when he turns around in the end, it feels like it's just because he's gotten on the bandwagon. I know I'm reading too much into an animated film, but I like a good story. The kids will have fun, but it's not Nemo or Toy Story. It's fun and sweet, but not a thrill ride.

Took my 8 y/o to see this movie and we booth enjoyed it very much. The story line was well written and effects were good (seen it in 3D). I would recommend taking children of any age to see this film as long as they can sit through a 100 minute movie.

What a really great family movie ! Took my grandchildren, 8 & 6, and all three of us enjoyed it. Messages on life on 3 different levels, good action, tension, and happiness.

Better than MonstersU

By all measures, this movie is better for kids than MonstersU. If you are on a date go see the other; in all other cases see Turbo. Also, while I generally despise 3D, this one really works.

Great underdog story for the family!

loved it -- loved the 2 different "brothers" stories. I always like those "your dream is too big" movies, and this one didn't disappoint. Sam Jackson was right on!
