We've been meaning to go for weeks, finally today we managed it.
Ella's been to the movies many times, Leila (at 2 1/2) only once before. On that occasion (Madagascar II) she didn't sit still much at all, preferring to run along the aisles. I was hesitant this morning, wondering how successful it would be with the four of us going, but figured what the heck.
I have to say, I don't think the girls have ever been so engrossed in a movie - Leila did not move at all. Ponyo is wonderful - I loved it, the animation is great, the story wonderful - nothing not to like. If you haven't seen it - do - I'm not sure it will run much longer. Remember though, if you don't want to have to read subtitles all the way through, be sure to go to an English dubbed session.
