We enjoyed this movie in the theatre, and decided that our 5 year old girl (who likes "safely spooky" things like kids' books about ghosts and the Haunted Mansion at DisneyWorld) could watch it. It is now her favorite movie. However, children that age who are easily shaken by spooky, ghostly images shouldn't watch it. The reviewer who stated something like "good graphics, but slow" is obviously coming from a video-game perspective. This movie is not that at all. Under all the skeletons, it's a tale about obligations and telling the truth. Superb voice performances, especially from Johnny Depp and the British character actors who play the four parents. I enthusiastically recommend this movie!
