Hi there,


I love the book and bought it way before I knew they were making a movie out of it. My kids love it as well and we read it many times a day. Needless to say I was super excited to take my son (4yrs) to the theatre to see it. I thought it was a great message and a great first movie out at the theaters. However, I have heard that even though it is rated G, it is kinda dark. I do not want to take my ds if they have put a dark spin on it. Anyone else hear about this movie? Has anyone seen it? If so, what were your thoughts on it? TIA

I took my 7 and 10 y.o. dds to see it, they didn't like it at all, and neither did I.  The image of a huge needle aiming into the sleeping mom's head was scary, and the peril the mom and the boy were in at the end was just too stressful!  We all cried:(   !!!  My older dd said,"I want to sue the director of that movie!" :)orngtongue.gif

I thought it was rated PG.  I would not recommend for a 4 yr old.

Did you see it?

We have the book but it looks very different from the movie! To the point where I'm not sure that the idea of the book would even be in there!
