The Tale of Despereaux (2008)
Not for the "under 7 age crowd", and not like the book.
Went with my 10 yr old daughter, her friend, her friends mother (a teacher). Like some of the other reviews- I agree that many younger kids got bored real quick when watching this movie. We all thought the animation was spectacular, and the narration superb - however, the movie tended to drag on approximately half way thru.
When leaving the theater my daughter commented that it deviated too much (some differences OK) from the book and it was "sort of boring". This was very surprising to me as she normally loves movies with a message, animated or not. An added note that the folks we went to the movie with said it was "OK". As I expected - the Kindergarten age boy was not into the movie as I had hoped he would have been.
