This is a very kid centric movie. As an adult, you should not go expecting there to be some deeper storyline for the adults. Unlike a lot of kid’s movies that have come out lately, this one does maintain a happy feel for nearly all of it. There’re a few touching moments, but none of them are really sad.
I’d say this movie is appropriate for all ages, if your kid can sit through a movie that is an hour and half long and not jam packed with action. Be forewarned, the first twenty minutes are very boring. And if you’re lucky like me, you’ll be next to someone who thinks every little joke is hilarious and they will irritate you with their laughter.
Once the movie gets going, there are some good jokes. Lots of stereotypes are mocked and there are some great one-liners.
Would I recommend it? Well, if you have kids and want a few laughs, sure go see it. I saw it in 3D and the effects were pretty good. But really, you could wait until this one comes out on TV. Your kids are more likely to watch this movie in bits and pieces than all at once.
