While the plot of the movie is rather lacking in some areas and drags a bit from time to time, I overall enjoyed this movie. The dialogue flies fast and free at times and may not be understood fully by younger viewers or even some adults.
Johnny Depp is an incredibly talented actor in my opinion and his range is well represented here, even if only in vocal form.
This is the worst example of a KIDS movie I have ever seen. It is a cartoon, marketed to kids with toys that came in kids meals at kid restaurants. This is not a kids movie, unless you want your child to learn a few new words that your kids shouldn't be saying I would stay away from this one.
