The Tale of Despereaux

Review: The Tale of Despereaux

My wife and pre-teens were bored by it but I loved it when I saw it recently. I liked the visual direction, the inventiveness of the story (probably most of that came from the book), the subtle humour (which probably missed my younger sons), and I even enjoyed the uneven pace and consequent lack of intensity.

Again, I think the Flicks is spot on in the review but it caught my imagination with gorgeous scenes and languid pacing that game me time to appreciate the good bits. So it gets one star more.
