Most people are going to take this movie at face value and think it's a terrible waste of their time. And those people would be correct. This isn't the best movie ever made, but the characters, the sounds, the music and the innocence of it make a film that's hard to forget. If children's films can become cult classics, this one fits the bill. If you want a great animated movie go for some classic (Or in the case of Ponyo, recent) Myazaki. But if you want to see something so totally out there that it needs an audience to be believed, this may be a good one for you. One thing to keep in mind, this wasn't even meant to be a movie. This was an old television show in Japan that was cobbled together to make a movie. Knowing that will help put this thing into perspective for you. I wouldn't recommend this for very young children either- some of it is a little terrifying. Like the lobster fight, or the incident with the eggs...
