Wow, I am shocked at the bashing of this movie; my Grandkids love it and watch it over and over! The only reason I got this movie is because every time it came on cable (regular version), my Grandkids had to watch it! They love the 2-D/3-D version of it. I will not be trading this DVD any time soon; it's their movie. I have watched the regular movie with them and it's not that bad; I actually enjoyed it, too! It's a kid movie; enjoy with them! :)

Oh boy a 3 D movie! Well, it didn't look 3 D on my flat panel plasma TV. As an adult this could have been one of the worst movies I've ever watched. Not just that the movie had no plot or that the child actors over acted each sceen. Yes you could sense the words action and cut as this mess was chopped together. After staring at the floating head for awhile I began to think of all those chores I should be doing instead of waisting my time with this mess. If you try and watch this at the end of the show you'll be kicking yourself for waisting your time.

"I'm surprised at all the adults bashing this movie because THEY didn't like it! What I loved about this movie is that it does seem to cater entirely to childrens fantasies. I've seen many children watch it (because during my sons' obsession with it he had to show it to everyone!)and they were all mesmerized by it. I've even enjoyed it. The 3-D version is pointless though because unless you tweak your tv just right it is poor quality. Don't bother with that, just watch the 2-D version that is on the same disk. It's still great in 2-D. Little girls like this movie too, but a must have if you have little boys!"

"Wow, many reviewers have really bashed this film. We just bought the DVD for our daughter, and she absolutely loved it. After having watched the special features section detailing how the Rodriguez family devised the story, my daughter is writing and illustrating multitudes of original, imaginary scenes of her own. As an adult, I actually enjoyed the movie very much. Sure, it's a step away from reality, but it has revitalized imagination and creativity in our household. Dreaming is a very bizarre and peculiar phenomenon, so I think the pure imagination depicted in the film is justified.
I haven't seen a movie so imaginative and entrancing since the first time I saw Gene Wilder as Willie Wonka on HBO as a seven-year-old boy.
It's corny and cheesy, but give it a chance and try not to be negatively biased by scathing critiques. Watch it with your kids. They'll enjoy your company. You might like it!"
