Saw it yesterday with a group of kids from my daughters school.

Lots of scenes too intense for four year olds.  One kid had to leave half way through.  Some wimpering, some eye covering.

I was very proud of my girl.  She was the only kid who did not punk out at all in the movie.

But word to the wise, parents...lots of scenes at night, lots of angry dogs...young kids might be scared.

But the movie itself? I enjoyed it.  but THE INCREDIBLES is still the greatest to me.

i, too, saw this yesterday  (after i watched THE HANGOVER).
it was good. not the best Pixar movie. just good.
the animation style was interesting.
The "Spirit of Adventure" was DEFINITELY the theme of the movie.

a flying house? balloons? definitely a suspension of disbelief...but that's all pixar/disney movies...so that's a non-issue.

doug the dog was cool.
the 'little mail man" got on my nerve
but i liked that cranky ol' man.  Ed Asner did his thing!
3 out of 5.

and i only teared up a lil'...at the end...nice touch.


Listen to my entertaining radio show, "The Takeover: Top 20 Countdown" at www.top20takeover.VVCRadio.com.

Right on to the real and death to the fakers!  Peace out!

Saw this with my 3 yr. old and 11yr. old

Thought it was very good, very touching.

Good to see a story where the main character was a person of age and not a teen or 20/30 something.

Dogs were a little out there, little out of place in the story but I went with it.

I'm liking everything Pixar puts out.  They all have their special qualities and I can't seem to put one over the other.

Whoa! I didn't know Ed Asner (from the Mary Tyler Moore Show)  did the voice of the main character!

Going Up?
