I thought I would find it interesting based on the premise. I was suprised to find it very funny, good, engaging, and smart! It was also pretty action-packed and paced well.

My daughter loved it too. So, it is always a bonus/plus when a kid's movie scores well with adults.

I loved Mittens; she also had some of the best lines. The actress that gave her life, Susie Essman, did a fabulous job.

Oh, and Rhino was a riot!! For once, the goofy/comic relief character was well done, true to himself, and not just spouting 1-liners!!

I recommend it highly!!

Sooooooooooo, whaddya guys think?

I'd love to hear your opinions!!

kiss

I thought it was 'meh.' I really dislike John Travolta, so it was hard for me to get over him. Not their best effort really.

I really enjoyed it when I watched it in the theater. The pacing seemed a little off to me, but I rather enjoyed most of the dialog and the ending was touching. My girlfriend at the time even cried at the end.

I heard John Travolta doesn't like you either. Considering his new look... if I was you I'd have Chuck Norris with me day and night.

I really liked it and look forward to adding it our dvd collection. Rhino as mentioned is an excellent character. As for Travolta, I was most of the way through the film before I even noticed.

My wife and I both enjoyed it. It was predictable, sure, but it had a cute story, and seeing it in 3D at Downtown Disney didn't hurt.

The same thing happened to me!! I looked at the DVD box (rental) more than halfway through the movie and was totally surprised that it was him!!

So does your dislike for an actor prevent you from objectively enjoying/or not a film that they are in?

Depends on why I dislike them. In this case, yes.

It's because of Battlefield Earth isn't it?

I was pleasantly surprised as well.

I'm not a big Travolta fan and this movie just didn't attract me - looked stupid and such. But I'm glad I gave it a try. My 3 year old daughter wanted to rent it and I'd have to say I got a lot more out of it than she did - and a lot more out of it than I expected.

And yes, I loved Mittens and Rhino too.
