And who are you to believe that you can defeat me now?
No one special. Just... king of the ocean.

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.
