Fantastic movie for kids and adults, and you don't have to love or know much about soccer to enjoy it. The characters are interesting and the writing is really clever. Plus there's a great moral to the story (several, in fact).
The movie covers father-son relationships, bullying, teamwork, doing your best, facing fear, cheating, vanity, rivalry, and a host of other important topics, all in a fun, fast- paced, and witty hour and 45 minutes. Plus, it has foosball! What more could one want?
Really, this far exceeded my expectations and there is nothing inappropriate about it - - no bad words, sex, drugs, overly scary scenes, or slow, awkward content. It was a surprisingly enjoyable movie to watch with my 12 year old daughter (who hates sports!). We give it two enthusiastic thumbs up.
Arthur Christmas (2011)
Great Family Christmas Movie
This was the best kind of family movie -- fast-paced, lots of fun, entertaining for elementary age, middle schoolers, and parents, and with NO bad words or sexual innuendo.
We loved Arthur, Bryony, and Grandsanta especially, as they were the most developed and important characters, and as a mom I appreciated the morals of this story -- every single person matters, never give up, and sometimes old-school is better. Plus, technology is still good and yes, customer service and people skills do matter!
I loved it, my husband loved it and our 8 and 11 year olds loved it. We saw it in 3D that mostly felt 2D, so the 3D in this one didn't pop for us (like it did in Puss in Boots) but maybe it was just nicely subtle -- sometimes the attempt to make things come of the screen is over the top. But I don't remember ANYTHING coming at us this time, so this is probably just as good in 2D.
Bottom line: very enjoyable, good messages, lots of twists and fun humor ... Definitely worth seeing and owning!
