This Depends On Your Audience
6 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are lots of funny lines in this animated movie and some funny characters, at least for adults. I laughed and thought it was great but when I played it for the second time, with a couple of little kids in the audience I was disappointed that most of the humor went over their heads. All of a sudden, the film wasn't as great as I had remembered (and told them it was). So.....what you think of this film, I guess might depend on your age, for one thing.

There's a nice message here for the kids, though: you can't do without your parents. Speaking of kids, the nerdy-looking fat kid obviously was the funniest in here. Everyone in the audience likes him.

One bit of warning to the older folks: keep the audio remote handy. This gets very loud in spots and needs to be turned down here and there.
