    Inkheart

    Good movie for the entire family. It is not dumbed down. The best parts are of course Brendan Fraiser and Helen Mirren and the scenery. Loved the palazzo on the lake, wish it were mine and the castle in the hills. The dungeons were fabulous. Great advertising, now I want to visit Northern Italy.

    In regards to Helen Mirren, I like how many British actors are not afraid to take on smaller supporting roles and create fabulous characters.

    Duxxy..... my friend and I took a 7 and 8 year old to this movie last Friday night and we all loved it, too.

    Bearcata... I loved the same aspects of the movie as you. I also love the focus on reading and the idea that the things that you read can come alive. Makes for very vivid imaginations. I also love that this book had been written especially for Brendan Fraser; the author is a huge fan (as are my friend and I.)

    One small spoiler/non-spoiler:

    the ending does not mirror the book. In some ways I wish they have left this particular aspect open for the sequel but perhaps they felt that this first film was a bit of a risk and they weren't certain that the others would follow, or ?

    Great reviews, thanks. I have this on my list to see with the kiddos. And, having Brendan Frasier in it is a bonus for this Mom, lol!

    I'm still not sure that I want to see this one. I'd really like to, but the trailers show it as being so much different than the book and I'm afraid I'll be disappointed. I may wait until it is available on DVD ... or I might go this weekend if it's at the $4 theatre ...

    SR5.... One small disclaimer from me: I have not read the book. But my friend has, so that's how I knew to throw in that spoiler part for you. She was happy with the movie, but unfortunately I can't do more to reassure you.

    I'm trying to decide if I can convince myself that it's a different story. Kinda like the musical "Wicked" is nothing at all like the book ... and I loved the musical. It just looks like they've brought in a bunch of special effects stuff and extras that the story doesn't need.

    Understandable. Andy Serkis is always worth the risk, however, and I never fail to enjoy Paul Bettany.
