This movie was amazing, and I'm not one of the kids that likes animated kids movies very much, I love speilberg. My fav. Director of all time, and I have to say he did an amazing job on this movie. Now, the movie had a great story, but allot of kids who are used to movies like cars, planet 51, ect, would most likely be lost in this movie, it is a little hard to follow, but if you can follow it, it has a great story, now, for little kids, there is a good amount of violence, but not to crazy, I can say that if the movie wasn't animated, it would be pg-13, which to me, is perfectly fine, if the movie doesn't have a lot of language or dirty things, which this movie does not have. Also, one of the main character is a drunk, and I think that that's actually good for kids to see; that way they can see what alcohol does, the drunk is always screwing things up. There is also one scene with blood, but very little. This movie, in my opinion, is good for anyone aged 8 to 80, yes, this movie would even be entertaining to adults, but if you are the type of parents, only let your kids see movies like cars and planet 51, this movie may be hard to follow for your kids, and a little frightening for your kids.
