My whole family has a special place for this kid-friendly movie that is based on Cressida Cowell's series of kids' books of the same name. To start off, the movie is virtually nothing like the books, in that the story revolves around Hiccup, a klutzy Viking boy, his father, village chief Stoick the Vast, and a girl he likes, Astrid and most importantly Toothless, a dragon he attempts to kill and later befriends, who looks so much like a black cat it's endearing!
This animated movie begins with a narration by Hiccup about his village, and about how dreadful life is there, especially due to the pest problem - dragons! It seems the only reason these Vikings haven't abandoned this gloomy area is because of their stubbornness issues. As the story evolves, the friendship between Hiccup and Toothless (who doesn't quite live up to that name!) becomes stronger, and they both discover the truth about dragons and why they are such big nuisance, and they both team up to keep the village safe and to free the dragons from tyrrany.
Overall this is a great story that will appeal to all age groups, and the animation is superb, with wonderful music throughout! I would highly recommend this movie!

I was thrilled with this movie!
As I don't care for crude humor, I was worried about it when we finally got the chance to see this movie, but my fears were unfounded. Yes, there was a tiny bit but it was not enough for me to dislike the movie at all. In fact, I can't wait to get it! It is on my "Must Own" list. :)

I missed this film in the theaters and was worried that watching it in two dimensions would be boring. I can certainly see how 3d viewing may have added more to the film but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It's your standard fare young kid finds out a new way to do old things and brings his family/village into line with that new idea. But the execution was very good, the animation inventive and fun and as far as I can tell it's a great film for kids if you're okay with animated violence(doesn't bug me, but some don't like any violence).
