  • The children's real world, or what passes for real in a fantasy, could hardly be more inviting, for reasons that are hardly mysterious: the strong performances, under Mark Waters's accomplished direction; the smart, bright language, much of it taken from the books; the stylish cinematography, by Caleb Deschanel. show more

  • The film underscores the power of reading, and applying what we read to problem-solving. The story suggests that we don't really see the natural world around us, and if we did our lives, like Jared's and his siblings', would be immeasurably richer. show more

  • An enjoyable adventure fantasy that pushes all the requisite buttons while still managing to throw in a pleasant surprise or two. show more

    Little scary for young children. But a little young for adults. It really was not too bad not something I would buy.
