Didn't know how this one would be for the kids or for us. I think the idea of having a movie that was completely centralized in this gaming world was what really had us skeptical. While we love gaming in this house, we just didn't know how amusing a story line like that (or at least from the limited previews that we saw) would be for long.
However, it was a HUGE success in our family...kids and adults! Very witty and smart, but also playful with a lot of heart to it. I really liked the messages/themes about bullying that recurred throughout...standing up for your friends, overcoming others' negativity, being yourself and being proud of who you are - they way you are...etc. Very cool and a very hot topic now!
The characters were really well developed, too. The kids liked seeing some familiar faces...and so did my husband and I. The character dialogue, plot, sequences were not boring at all and kept even my husband and I completely fixated.
Overall, a GREAT choice! Recommended!
