Loved this movie. Thought I would be bored based on the reviews of some on this website (and yes, the first 15 minutes were slow), however I found myself dancing, laughing, and cheering in my seat for Turbo and his buddies. The music was amazing, and I downloaded it the moment we left the theater. Also, I think this movie had a very positive message about minoriites, women, and those of lower socio economic status. It wasn't gushing about being a minority or one of the working class, at the same time it was positive without being paternalistic. Highly recommended for the entire family. Saw it with DD, but we are going back to see it with DH for sure!

I took my daughter in law and two of my grandkids, ages 5 and 6, to see Turbo yesterday. Everyone loved it! No scary parts at all, just fun. My grandson was sitting next to me and cheering Turbo on during the whole race part "I KNOW he's going to win! I KNOW he's going to win! Come on Turbo, you can do it!" He's never done that before in any movie that I'm aware of. :) Feel good movie for kids and adults alike.

My seven-year-old enjoyed the movie from start to finish. Because we saw it in Real3D, he enjoyed the effects even more.
The effects were the best aspect of the movie from the adult standpoint. The story, however, was very slow at the start and by mid-movie, the pace had picked up somewhat leading to the expected climax. Thankfully, this movie is relatively short.
In short, your kids will love it but prepare to be a little bored yourself until mid-film.

When I first saw the previews for Turbo I was a bit skeptical - I've loved all of the works to come out of the Dreamworks factory but snails were not high on the list of characters whom I thought would engage me. The movie changed my perspective - a well written script that was both thoughtful and funny to complement a story of triumph - a winning combination! The one thing I would say is that I'm not sure one needs to see the film in 3D - none of the effects really required it. I look forward to owning this film when it comes out in DVD.

My 5- and 9-year old girls definitely enjoyed it. It didn't create the buzz around the house like Despicable Me 2 (minion toys everywhere now) or Monsters University (MU activity books scattered about), but worth the price of admission to see it in 3D--even for my wife and me.
