My children loved this movie!  The opening scene in the story is much like many stories at my house.  Brother gets mad at sister.  Sister is mean to brother, starts off as innocent fun but someone gets their feelings hurt, retaliation sets in.  This sort of thing happens at our house all of the time!  I felt quite sorry for little Max as his igloo was crushed right along with his feelings.  But, the little boy is quite a character with an imagination as large as any imagination can be!  When you watch this movie, you're catapulted into this wonderful imagination right along with Max.  It's a great movie.  Turn it on and watch it with the kids.  You'll be glad you did!

I just watched it this weekend and loved it. My kid wouldn't sit and watch it, though.
