This movie got our couch potato kids off the couch, climbing the walls, and acting out scenes from the beginning of this film. Instead of staring at video games and being immobile, it's nice to see them act like normal kids for once.

I was so appalled by this video that I am writing this review. I pre-viewed it before letting my granddaughter watch it and I'm so glad I did. I watched it for about fifteen minutes expecting it to get better. When it didn't, I quit watching. It is full of yelling and violent behavior that little ones pick up on quickly. I like Maurice Sendak's books, so I had high hopes for this movie. In no way, shape or form, would I recommend this movie to anyone. Maybe it gets better in the end but by then, the kids won't care. They'll be climbing the walls and acting out what they just saw. Do you really want that for your children?
