Everyone is in titled to their own opinions but disregard reviews under 4 stars. This fable tale of a movie has it all comedy,music,drama and spookiness. Having never read the book I found this to be a new and refreshing ferry tale to watch. The look and style of this movie is nothing short of breathtaking beauty and sound. I absolutely loved all the characters especially "the mom" Terry Hatcher what a hoot!I bought the 2009 2 disc collectors edition blu-ray. It's fully loaded with lots of value for your money including a fun 3D version, the old fashion way of 3D mind you. With the two colored 3D glasses and I received four pairs inside the DVD. This DVD also came with a digital download inside. Even though I bought it after the expire date to download,it still worked and I got my free digital copy. A lot of painstaking detail went into the making of this movie and it shows in every way. I really love this style of animation. It doesn't look like a cartoon. You won't be disappointed! Destined to become a movie classic.
