| the movie is OK, I don't know what the fuss is about.
Jack Black is entertaining enough. A strange movie, with some really wierd scenes. The sets and effects were fun. The chair and flying leaves gargoyle thing were fun. My 8 year daughter has seen it, who was 7 at the time. She did not have nightmares or cry or was terrified or any of the other hysterics that I have read about in the other reviews. She watched it a second time but was bored half way through. The people who say this movie is unsuitable for children are the kind that are either radical christians who are against anything that might look like it isn't straight from the pages of the bible, or the super snowflake triggerati who are raising precious princesses that must be shielded from all harm, naughty words or anything else that might affect their fragile sensibilities. I did have to remind my kid for the 1 millionth time after watching this, and harry potter, and all the other magic obsessed films they seem to have these days, that magic isn't real. I don't know necessary that is, but in my opinion it is better to be sure that your kids are well able to distinguish reality from fantasy.
