User Review

Not as bad as the reviews

Rating: 7/10

I took my 12 year old grandson to see it and he was rolling on the
floor for most of the film. I was surprised that it was actually
funny,much more surprise than I was prepared for. This is a funny movie
for those preteens and early teens as they seem to really enjoy it.
Sure it is not full of high tech special effects and should never be
compared to the Matrix, but it is a Disney! movie — get it… a
Disney movie. Take that into consideration … how many Disney movies
achieve high ratings anyway, other than the classics? This is a fun
movie. I saw the original and it was funny too. Remember way back when
everything was black and white and not color? The special effects in
this movie are not very high tech and some of the metamorphosis takes
place when you do not see it, so do not expect "the wolf-man" changes
to be shown, nope, one shot he is a man, the next he is a dog. Some of
the other critters are pretty funny too and kids seem to love this
