Trivia:
The facial features of the brownie Thimbletack bear an uncanny resemblance to those of the great Laurence Olivier. This is most apparent in the scene where Aunt Lucinda (Joan Plowright, Olivier's widow) calls him "my little guardian angel".See more »

AMAZING Kid's Movie!, 17 February 2008
Author: Jennifer Holloway from United States

Don't listen to all those 'know it alls' who say the book is better then the movie, so therefore, this movie isn't any good. This was a GREAT movie! Obviously you can't fit a whole book into a kid length movie - so they do the best they can and this was WILDLY successful! It was a fun, suspenseful movie that engages you from the beginning. I went with my 9 year old daughter and she LOVED IT! I haven't seen such a good children's movie in a long, long time! It's a MUST SEE! If your child is easily scared then this may not be the movie for them. While I don't view it as a scary movie - the goblins and action might be startling for sensitive kids.
