When Snatcher comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls. Eggs decides to venture above ground and "into the light," where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie.

When the teddy bear's music box runs down, Baby Eggs hands the mechanism to Fish who gives the key only two half-turns.

[after Learning that Snatcher was lying about the boxtrolls and the Trubshaws]
He lied to us and to poor Madame Fru fru. Snatcher...

We took our 3 year old son to this film, and was not expecting much entertainment for us adults. However, both my wife and I really enjoyed it and my son has been walking around in a bottomless box with holes cut in it,(for his head and arms),for two days.
It has a lot of charm and a slight edge of darkness. I am surprised that it has received such poor reviews from the critics. I have noticed they tend to rate realistic, depressing films; whereas we like happy escapist fun and this film delivers that.
We are from the UK and the voices are perhaps better known here, which may have contributed, a little, to our perception of this film's charm.
