Strange little animated movie. Age old theme/story told with Japanese twists. Who figured that ham sandwiches are part of Japanese culture??? Mildly entertaining at best for adults, kids will probably love it.
my 4 year old loved it
Like most studio Ghibli movies, this one is a precious gem.
amazing. beautiful stunning.
Fantastic movie! My six year old daughter was completely enthralled throughout the entire 100 minutes and she talked about it for days after (which I've never heard her do before). We both highly recommend Ponyo!
this movie rocks hard
If you are a fan of Hayao this is a great movie to see. for those of you parents who are complaining about the characters in the film influencing your childrens idealisms and perceptions on parenthood, well quite honestly if you feel as this movie will create such an inpact on your children then you are obviously not doing a good job as parents. They should be looking to you as influences as apposed to fictional cartoon characters. Oh boy.
Seriously, I have no idea why this movie is getting so much hype. I watched it last week and believe it or not... I got up 1/4 way through. I couldn’t stop laughing on how ridiculous it was and had to leave. It was not magical at all. First off, the character who played the mother really made me mad - driving like crazy on the road with a 5 year old sitting in the front seat of her car, not being worried about her husband who was out in the open sea after a hurricane/typhoon hit, leaving her kids alone to go of saving the elderly women at the old home – on second though I swear I saw the old women she was trying to save on that big boat that they ended up meeting with... and most important o
that movie is amazing i watched it just on wednesday at globe cinema its so cute n funny
Just plain weird movie, who leaves 2 five year old kids alone during a disaster? Or opens a beer when fighting with her husband. Maybe not the best kids movie...
not worth the time!!
Several million points out of ten for style, substance and pure, unadulterated joy!
okay but it is realy good movie for kids
