Went to see this last night and was really, really entertained. I am not sure how Dreamworks keeps coming up with great scripts, but they do. This was a great story, with lots of laughs for both parents and kids.
The 3D effects were outstanding as well, and it was a lot more than just a few "hey, something's going to hit me" type of effects.
No 3-D in our local theater which bummed the kids out but they still enjoyed it (11, 9 & 3 1/2) - I checked my brain at the door and enjoyed a big box of whoppers - 90 minutes later we were out the door.....next ?

I KNOW! What the hell, Dreamworks?!
Either have it 3-D everywhere or not at all. My kids were bummed, and so was I. This happened with Coraline as well.
I liked it. The story was very predictable, but fun anyway. I think my theater tried to compensate for the 3-D by turning up the volume really loud. I know it's been around a while, but I still marvel at computer animation and the things they can do. Each new film gets a little bit better visually than the last one.
It was very enjoyable. The one detractor I hated was RZA's acting. He's as bad as Stephen King in Creepshow. Terrible acting from him. Other than that, extremely fun and Big Dave was kick ass. He's slowly building himself a decent acting resume.
