I took the kids to see this on the IMAX bigscreen this weekend, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
While Robin Williams has certainly done better animated work, this was still just a lot of fun.
Perhaps I am too-jaded-now, but an awful lot of this flick suggested the animation was being done for a video game first, and then they forced a story into it.
Nevertheless, the characters worked, some of the jokes were pretty clever, most of the animation was thrilling on the big screen, and this film will easily become a DVD to add to the family collection.
I saw it to review for our school newspaper....I thought the animation was as good as I've ever seen, but the story was lacking and I thought the characters were a bit one-dimensional. Of course, kids don't really care about those things.
I was surprised that there weren't many laugh-out-loud moments, especially considering Robin Williams was in the cast.
EDIT: AWArulz nailed the one time I remember laughing out loud...Williams' character dancing like Britney Spears.

A pretty good episode tonight. I laughed everytime they did the 300 styled slo-mo stuff, and the Mexicans stole the show this week, especially the writing of the essay parts. Though it was funny the scissoring got disturbing after awhile.
