was somewhat trepidatious and admit going for the kids, not expecting much. have been seriously invested in the kids' cinematic education for 25+ years and as a result, seen an wide-ranging spectrum for the juvenile set. fantastic visuals, not your run of the mill animation by a long shot. subtle,intelligent humor, simple, streamlined story, and unapologetic, not-so-typical versions of the female/male leads. all of which takes a gracious back seat to the star of this film: the music. for anyone who's managed to incorporate the last several decades worth of music into their everyday lives, all of it will prove to be one long sing-a- long. for those unfamiliar, no worries: the songs are strong enough to stand on their own and the fact that they've been chosen to fit the moment is just a bonus. very pleasantly surprised and will become part of the Permanent Library

nuanced rock opera that works across all age groupsReviewed byonceuponathymeVote: 10/10
I saw this movie with my daughters and my husband. We watch movies every week as family outings. My whole family loved this movie. My daughters ages 6, 7 and 8 also love all musicals so that probably helped. My husband laughed throughout and my kids thought a lot of the scenes were very funny. There were some scary parts that I probably would shut my kid's eyes for if they were 5 and younger. My kids were singing all the tunes in the car on the way home and begged to watch the movie again the next day as we went to the movies again. It's a little bit of a love story with a twist that my kids definitely thought was different.
My determination of whether or not an animated movie made for children is a good movie is based on how much my children enjoy it. I'm not looking for a complicated, layered plot or cutting edge animation, or anything else that adults use to judge a movie. My 12 and 9 year old daughters liked it and my 8 year old son liked it a lot. They enjoyed the recognizable songs weaved into the plot. Today, with the internet, everybody wants to sound like an intelligent movie critic, or food critic, or travel critic... but to me the measure of quality of a product is simple: did the intended audience get value out of it (for entertainment, enjoyment vs cost)? In this case, definitely.
