Just ok.

I took my kids plus my nephew to the movies this afternoon. I didn't really want to go....feeling a little tired and sluggish. I'm also still avoiding the mess in my house! I figured if I could get out of the house for a few hours, maybe when I got home, I will have found that the gnomes and fairies had taken down all of the lovely Christmas decorations and neatly put them away! No such luck!

Anyway...I took them to see this movie. It was cute and nicely animated. Sometimes I wonder, though, why they bother with such deep plots for movies that are rated G. Nathan and Jesse (who are 8 and 11) I'm sure had no problem getting the point of the movie, however, I know for a fact that it flew right past the girls heads. They could not have cared any less about the emotional issues and the "longing" that befuddled each of the characters. Frankly, it was too serious for me. This was evident when I promptly fell asleep about 30 minutes into it.

Overall, I think it was good but, I wouldn't go see it again and I'm not going to rush out to get the DVD when it's available. I think I'd rather just watch Cars or The Incredibles over and over and over and over!

My oldest son saw it with his class on the last day before Christmas vacation and he wasn't very impressed with it.

We haven't seen this one yet. We started reading the book, but never finished. I love Cars and The Incredibles too!!! Great, great movies! Thanks for the movie review.
