The kids didn't fall asleep, they were glued to the screen, 7 & 9. I enjoyed it although not as good as Hotel Transylvania, but better than Frankenweenie. Animation movies are the "IN" movies it seems like, and this one was fun to watch. My son 9 just sat there eating his candy watching the movie, didn't hear him laugh too much. My daughter 7 was laughing very loudly and yelling at the screen once in a while. She screamed "Ewwwwww" during a kissing scene that made everyone laugh in the theater.
All around it was very enjoyable and recommend it to everyone from people going to the movies for a date, to parents like myself taking your kids to the movies.

We thought it was very good--really funny, clever dialogue, good story--not too formulaic, as these animated movies usually are. Great graphics and 3-D, fun concept. The kids liked it and me too! I thought it was fine for almost any age or kids of most ages, no bad language--some of the jokes about older games the kids won't get. But it's a good time.

The movie was great! Where do they come up with these story ideas?!? Kids and Adults will enjoy this movie. Lots of action and it will keep your attention. As always, there is a lesson to learn. Very well thought out and nice ending.

My wife, five year old daughter and I went to this movie and loved it. For my wife and I, it was a clever movie that integrated many of our favorite games and snacks from the 80s. For my daughter, it was simply a fun movie with great visuals. Normally, she gets a little sleepy during movies, but she was excited and having fun throughout the movie. We all left feeling good. It is a must see family movie.

This film was yet another great family film by Disney! With that being said, it is no surprise to see the adult humor that is in this film. It was truly a heart touching tale and was a most enjoyable experience. Plenty of retro gaming elements are present to rekindle even the older generations of gamers, from pong to q-bert, to sonic the hedgehog and beyond. Take your family to see this film!
