Fantastic movie, highly recommended!
29 April 2004 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

This movie is great for all ages! I liked seeing the story from both Ariel and Megan's point of view. The script was well-written and intelligent, funny and engaging. Younger viewers might enjoy the "alien" part of the plot, for example, the way Ariel talks. Adult viewers would probably appreciate the emotional interaction between Megan and Ariel. I for one liked all the pretty colors. (Ariel's pink and orange are strangely compelling...) I've seen this movie more times than I can count, and read the book too, and I still keep noticing new things each time I watch it. I definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone. People who enjoyed this movie might also like Zenon: Girl of the Twenty-First Century.
