DH and I loved it, but it was too slow and subtle for the 4yo and 6 yo we were with, and we actually had to leave a little early. There's very little dialog, and the kids liked it at first, but lost interest after the first hour. Better for kid with longer attention spans, I guess.
Dh and I liked it but the 4.5 and 6 yo we were with got bored and antsy after about an hour.

"Um, no" my DF said "she's three". People are always expecting her to act in a way more mature than her age because she looks older. Also, I find this to be a perfect learning experience....

There are a few girls in my ds' K class that talk about which boys in the class they are going to marry. The boys seems pretty oblivious to the whole thing, or at least they don't talk about it.
