I Loved It As A Kid
9 October 2019 | by madelinehoffmeisterSee all my reviews

Okay, so many people who search for this movie are going to find that adults, yes grown men and women, are judging this children's entertainment! The horror! Anyways, in 2011 I was 10 years old. This movie was my absolute favorite. So take it from someone who is only 18 and actually got to experience the movie as a kid; it's amazing. When blockbuster shut down, I even bought the movie because I loved it so much.

It's good for kids, it wasn't mean to be for anyone else. This company didn't have to entertain a reputation for all age movies like Disney, they just made something great and wonderful for kids. Respect that.
