I took Ds to see it last weekend and he was TERRIFIED of it! After the first 15 minutes he was begging to go home! I loved it, but there is a lot of adult humor. DS wasn't so scared after a while, and when I told him we could leave, he wanted to watch a little more. He ended up sitting on my lap with his head on my shoulder pretty much the whole time. I think the shark and "monster" fish were too scary!

Visitor here, but my three were scared too. I have a 5, 3, and 2 year old-there were several parts that were LOUD and they plugged their ears. My 3 and two year old wanted to leave, but I coersed them into staying. I agree that is was a lot of adult humor-I wasn't real thrilled, thank goodness I had free tickets-LOL.

Sometimes it is the size of the screen and the volume in the theatre. My son doesn't do well in theatres at all. He hates the sound and gets crossed eyed when he looks at eh screen! LOL! I just realized I have to show him movies at home when they come out. I kind of prefer that any way. Movies aren't as trustworthy as they used to be. KWIM?

We saw it today and I loved it and so did Shane. But Shane will be 6 in about 3.5 weeks. I do think it's geared to an older child and a young at heart adult. DH was not crazy about it. He didn't not like it, he just thought Pixar had done better stuff.

I loved Dory. Ellen Degeneres made me laugh all the way thru. I've always liked her. I just thought it was so creative. I want to see it again...so does Shane. We'll sneak off alone one night this week when dh is out of town.

Shane and I keep looking at each other saying "P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney." ; )

My ds hasn't seen it yet, but I know he will enjoy it. He doesn't scare easily with movies and such. He has watched movies that scares my 8 year old and it doesn't bother him at all. My sister took my 8 year old to the movie and she loved it and so did my 15 year old sister, but it took a lot for her to admit it. LOL.

I took my kids to see it this weekend. We tried twice before but was sold out each time. Anyway, the kids loved it, I liked it and dh could have stayed home, he wasn't that impressed with it. My kids are 5, 8 and 10 and they weren't afraid at all.

I also rented Eight Legged Freaks this weekend and the kids liked that also. My 5 yo said he liked it better than Finding Nemo, go figure. He is my little horror movie fan. He's my buddy when it comes to scary shows. He enjoys them and is very level headed about what is real and what isn't. He sits there and tells my 10 yo about that wouldn't happen in real life, spiders don't, etc. The kids liked it so much they watched in again the next morning. Just wanted to add though that I don't allow them/him to watch the friday the 13 type movies. My only reservation about letting them watch Eight Legged Freaks was that my son learned a new version of Itsy Bitsy Spider he decided that he liked singing so that's all I heard that day.
