Boring, just boring

I hear this movie might have had some violence in it so I put 8 and up. But we all fell asleep before that happened! It was sooooo slow and felt like it was a soap opera. Too much complaining about nothing and slow dialogue. My boys asked me to put in the croods instead.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Sparkling animation and endearing characters live in this comic adventure that includes treachery, a palace coup, cackling villains, and a possible beheading among its many action sequences. The plot has twists and turns and a triumvirate of villains. It's not an original tale -- a power-grabbing "cousin," a far-too-trusting innocent, and a grand finale of derring-do and comeuppance -- but if the kids who watch are mature enough to understand the difference between real and imaginary violence, there's enough to recommend Tall Tales from the Magical Garden of Antoon Krings.
