Although the film is set in "a fictitious time and place", they are driving on the wrong side of the road. When we see an aerial view of the streets, the junctions are marked out for driving on the left-hand side of the road UK style, but the cars are driving on the right. See more »

This movie is awesome because it's really funny and cool to see the little people living in the house with the big people. This movie is all about a kid named Pete Lender who is determined to find out why all the stuff in their house keeps disappearing. He eventually finds Arrietty who is a Borrower and she explains what Borrowers do. The Lenders have to move out of their house because a mean man named Ocious Potter wants to build an apartment building in its place. The Borrowers try to go with the Lenders but the kids fall out of the truck and have to travel through the city to find the new house that is by the old church. Some of the main characters in the movie are Pete Lender, Arrietty Clock, Ocious P. Potter, and Exterminator Jeff. My favorite character is Pete Lender because he really cares about the Borrowers and is really funny. Exterminator Jeff is on Ocious P. Potter's team at first but then wants to help Pete and the Borrowers. My favorite part in the movie is when Peagreen Clock fell out of the truck and landed in dog poop. I like that part because it was really funny and I think that a lot of people would think that was funny too. Another part I really like is when Ocious P. Potter got squirt with cheese. The Borrowers pushed the lever to squirt the cheese because he was after them. It worked and the Borrowers got away! I would recommend this movie for all ages 3 and up because there are a couple of scary parts but not too many and it is a really good movie. Reviewed by Anthony Aranda, age 9, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
