incredebly stupid,pathetic and dumb
very poor story.
yah i love it
Quite dissapointing, it looked really good in the trailer but the story in general was bad as well as some of the characters. However, props for being original.
awesome movie if u havent seen it your missing alot
It was an alright movie but nothing more. many of the kids in the theater were restless after about 30 mins. there were no funny scenes and the story line was weak. our 7 year old liked it but our 4 year old wanted to leave half way through.
The Tales Of Deperaeaux is a great film with a good message , but I think that it gets children worried a little bit. "What if we are poor like that?" is probably going through every child's head when they watch the movie. Overall, great movie.
Very sweet with a lesson on forgiveness.
it's a excellent movie
This movie was nothing like what I expected, I think I would be surprised if I found a single person in that theatre who enjoyed it. A few children were confused with it, and there wasn't any humor to be seen. I was unsettled when it finally came to an end, there were parts that I enjoyed, parts that I didn't and I was confused as to whether I truly enjoyed it at all. Well, I've come to a conclusion. I wouldn't waste money to go see this in theatres or buy it. Save it for rentals.
a great movie
alright movie - not as good as WALL-E. Animation was weak. Not anywhere close to the quality of PIXAR for sure...but storyline was somewhat ok - save it for rental. Not exactly a kid movie, nor an adult movie. No humour at all...so don't expect anything but a drawn out fairy-tale (unlike Shrek)
i love love love this movie
Where's pixar when you need them?
Why does the mouse look like Joe Lieberman?
Stop it is great
a cute film
