    Arthur and the Invisibles

    http://www.hollywood.com/

    Ten-year-old Arthur has a lot on his plate: a real estate developer is about to snap up his grandma's home... and there's no way Arthur's going to hang around for his parents or grandparents to sort out the problem. Maybe the solution lies in his grandpa's treasure, which is hidden somewhere on the "other side" in the land of the Minimoys. The creatures that inhabit this world are just a tenth of an inch tall and live in perfect harmony with their environment. Arthur ventures into this world of the Minimoys, where he meets Princess Selenia and her brother Betameche. Together they set off to look for the treasure that will save his grandma. An action-packed adventure ensues, full of pitfalls and intrigues, all the way up to the forbidden city ruled by the evil M the Malicious. Arthur's journey in the Minimoys universe reveals that sometimes the smallest heroes make the biggest difference.

    Yet another adorable little movie. I wasn't aware that this was going to take place in the 40's/50's.... and found myself wishing that there was a bit more time spent on the animated Minimoy world, but it was simply adorable nonetheless.

    Jordan was enthralled and not once did he offer a halfhearted "when is this going to be over?" as he normally asks, but rarely means anyways. Success!

    I'm glad someone wrote about this. I'm thinking of taking my Little Sister, but hadn't heard any reviews.
    Count your blessings!

    It was panned in our local paper...which loved the penguin dance movie, so isn't just bigoted against animation.

    I really enjoyed this movie. My 12 year old daughter (an anime fan) absolutely loved it and sat well through it (she has ADD so that can be a challenge). My son, who has autism was able to sit through a great deal of it, so that is a good review in my opinion!

    See that was my impression too, but when Arthur was in the one club dancing they used the BeeGee's 'You Should Be Dancing' (I think) from Saturday Night Fever and that was disco era late 70's. That really threw me off the timeline. Still It was better than I thought it would be, the character design was terrific.
