I agree that this is a good family film, and that if I were a kid I would absolutely love this. But when I saw it, I found it a bit disappointing.The flaws that I would overlook as a kid showed too much to me.
I wan't to see a great fantasy adventure story where a kid finds a secret world full of fantastic creatures and has to help save it as much as Carlyle does. It's those kinds of stories I've loved since I was a kid and would like to relive that sense of wonder and adventure again. But this film for me just felt like it fell a bit short, like there were some things about the magic world I wish the film could have shown more of or given more dept to but didn't. It just gave me that "is that all there is?" feeling.
I actually liked Bridge to Terrabithia (referring to the audio review). I totally agree with what you said about how they marketed it. I got the impression it was gonna be another lack-luster kid finds magical world show cashing in on a popular trend, but when I saw it on tv I was pleasantly surprised.
Fantasy has always appealed to girls as much as boys. It's just specific kinds of fantasy that tends to appeal to different genders. I freakin loved the Hallmark fantasy movies like that one about Merlin, the Hercules/Xena and Robin Hood tv series growing up.
