Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (26 ):

Nickelodeon commemorates the 10th anniversary of its popular series, The Fairly OddParents, with this family-geared movie that brings fans' favorite characters to life in a truly appealing way. The combination of live-action and CGI, punctuated by the hilarious crossover of Wanda and Cosmo as humans (played by Cheryl Hines and Jason Alexander), is a refreshing change to the show's linear animation style, and it's so well written –- and expertly cast -– that even long-time fans won't be put off by the differences.

Happily the movie's content caters to a range of ages, which makes it a great choice for family movie night. Tootie and Timmy's relationship is innocent and sweet, and physical contact is limited to one meaningful kiss. Violence is equally minimal, and aside from some potty humor (farting, diarrhea sounds, and burping), there's little reason to worry about watching with your kids. If you do, be sure to draw their attention to the lessons Timmy learns about being responsible and using his gifts to help others.
