My two kids (5 and 7) thought it was the best movie of all time. And they've seen lots of movies. Let's face it: we can't always dictate what the kids should like. This one simply appeals to them, and from a parents perspective, its basically harmless (except to the older crowd
then it is painfully boring).
I would recommend bringing a book.
Or a pillow and a sweater.
Or, at least some thoughts that you wanted to concentrate on for a while.
