Despite having marched with her cheerleading crew in the St. Patrick's Day parade downtown (from 4th-and-Yesler all the way to Westlake Center is a long friggin' way when you are five), IJ INSISTED on seeing this today. It was pretty much what you would expect, although I thought both Jim Carrey and Steve Carell underplayed a bit compared to what I was expecting (unlike, say, Robin Williams in Aladdin). There were definitely some laugh out loud moments for both the kids and grown-ups - pretty standard stuff.

The one compliant I have is that the big musical number at the end was REALLY out of place, and it would have been better used over the credits instead of the last scene. Also, I thought it was a little disconcerting watching the opening credits in the Dr. Suess traditional typeface. I mean, I must have read that book a thousand times as a kid, so I visualized it a certain way - to see it come to life was a bit jarring at first.

Still three thumbs up at my house, and three even bigger thumbs up for the most revealing Wall-E trailer I'd seen yet. Between that and Kung Fu Panda our summer viewing list is getting bigger.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

*snip*

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

Just got back from seeing it. Sold out show on a sunday, and we ended up being in the very front row.

The musical number was a bit odd, but it was short at least.

Didn't like the obvious religious connotations, but that's because I was more aware of them than my kids were.

Overall, thumbs up, way better than I had expected.

I guess that I was totally oblivious to any religious connotations. I thought it was good and funny, although Carol Burnette's character was rather annoying to me. My daughter loved it, and it kept her laughing. I'd definitely recommend this for kids, and adults who usually enjoy this type of movie.

Also included were longer trailers for Kung-Fu Panda and Wall-E...both look hilarious!

The musical number annoyed the hell out of me-- eck, can't stand REO Speedwagon-- but my family gives the movie three thumbs up as well. Quite enjoyable, and a great outing for families.

The only comic book/graphic novel movie I want to see this year. Some are saying this is 5-8 years too late, but I'll still go see it. I hope they have a little tribute to the cast members they lost sence the last one.
