What a film, different from anything else made recently. Heart-warming, slick, and accesible. This movie is cool.

Not your typical animated movie. Great plot. Great music. The DVD extras were very explanatory as well. The animation exaggerations truly make this a memorable film.

Watching five minutes of this film seems like an eternity. Somehow the very talented team of designers, writers and artists have managed to create a world beyond the boundaries if time and space, waking and dreaming. We travel through time and back in under 80 minutes. A marvelous tale of passion and devotion taking two colliding worlds on the adventure of a lifetime.

Entertaining a middle school girl
She's only twelve and she already knows everything and she's seen it all. What movie (not starring Will Farrel) could possibly entertain her?
