I saw it last night, and fell in love with it. Max is a little hellion in the first part of the film, but shows a vunerability early on, and the introduction and early discussions of the Wild Things were hilarious. I especially liked Carol and, surprisingly, Alexander. A very good movie to take children to, or just to enjoy.

another stupid special effects movie for stupid teenagers.
"major director"....what a sick joke that is; john ford was a major director.
if all teenagers would drop dead, be a lot better movies for adults.
and, of course, when movies cost 100 million dollars to make, some lowly cmovie critic making a measly 50 thousand a year isn't gonna risk losing his job by badmouthing a movie that needs 200 million to break even.

I saw this movie with my husband and daughters, ages 13 and 18. After the movie we all agreed it was one of THE best movies we have seen in a very long time. If anyone thinks this movie is stupid, then they clearly missed the entire point of the movie. Pity.

What I find hilarious is that when this book was first published, it was meant for children ages 6-8. Nowadays, most parents of kids those ages would be horrified to have such a bratty little kid be the protagonist of a children's book. Then again, when they were first published, a lot of classic children's books were meant for younger readers (such as A Wrinkle In Time, which used to be for children ages 9-12, but is now considered a young adult book). Either kids in the 60s and 70s were better-read than they are now, or publishers really didn't understand their audiences.
Anyway, this adaptation could have been much worse (and I was expecting it to be so, given how PC things are nowadays), but it was decent, if not spectacular.
