I took the kids to the first showing of this movie in our town today. Got there quite early as they wanted "good" seats. It was a cute movie, a bit long for my tastes. Lots of message in there about sticking with someone, caring through problems, loving someone who is different, etc.... thank you was entranced thorough the movie, Jess was mostly interested but got bored in the middle a bit. I got pretty bored, but enjoyed being out with the kids. (We learned last night that our theater has buckets for popcorn that are $9 BUT they get 50 cent refills through 12/31/2009. so we got one, it was a good deal as the kids already ate 3 full buckets (husband helped with one). Might check your theaters, it is an Indiana Jones bucket. Anyway, a cute movie your family may enjoy.
