We took our 3 and 5-year-old grandchildren: the movie kept them interested without being too violent or scary; my husband and I were amused and engaged. What more can you ask of a multi-generational movie?
What were they thinking? Fanny Price is one of Jane Austen's weakest (literally) heroines, but this Billie Piper's Fanny is sly, bold and sexy: totally contrary to Austen's intent, or to the context of the story.
Loved Madagascar I and II, but this movie is so out of steam it relies on a frenetic pace to compensate for lack of wit and story. And what's with the Fascist French policewoman? she is nothing but annoying.
