When Coraline moves to an old house, she feels bored and neglected by her parents. She finds a hidden door with a bricked up passage. During the night, she crosses the passage and finds a parallel world where everybody has buttons instead of eyes, with caring parents and all her dreams coming true. When the Other Mother invites Coraline to stay in her world forever, the girl refuses and finds that the alternate reality where she is trapped is only a trick to lure her. Written by

Coraline's puppet has its legs extremely thin in the beginning of the movie, but when Coraline goes to Bobinsky's house to deliver his cheese the puppet's legs are thick and apparently "normal". See more »

At the very end of the credits, the words "For those in the know: jerk wad" appear on the screen. This is a clue that could be used on the Coraline website in order to get an entry in a contest that ran during the movie's US theatrical run. See more »
I had no intention of seeing this, but my friend and I were bored on a Friday night and I had free tickets to a movie theater. The only movie playing at 9:30 at night was Coraline. I had heard of the book before, but I never read it so I didn't know what to expect.
The animation was amazing. Every character looked awesome and had so much detail to them. With the 3-D, nothing really popped out of you, but it just gave it an extra depth that made it more real. I think it was so cool.
The movie was really cute. If you haven't read the book, it'll keep you in suspense. I really enjoyed the movie and recommend you see it. :)
