    What age group is this flick intended for?

    Not a movie I would let kids watch. Adult underlying themes. If kids mimic some of the scenes they are going to need more than ObamaCare.

    It is a film that, now that I have seen it, I could live without seeing.

    I am sorry the monsters didn't eat that little bastard kid!!

    Gandolphini and Whittaker?? Tony Soprano is still alive, in this movie as Carol. Some of the scenes had their moments. Spike Jones could have done better.

    It was aimed at teens and young adults, and to a very specific audience (hipsters and the emo culture). That being said, I enjoyed the emotion portrayed by the characters. It was quite clear what Jonze was trying to do, and I think he did it well. I think they should have found a better kid to play the part of Max, because he simply did not work well in that role. I would have liked more of Catharine Keener's character, but I understand the movie was about Max and not his mom.

    Still, it was a film that was done quite well. Certainly not for kids, but it was never advertised to be for kids.

    Haven't seen it.

    Loved the book though.
