Worth it, I guess
First of all, it's Scenery Porn, capitals justified. This film makes even outdones Ponyo, blending some nice CGI in the mix. There are also some nice laugh moments, as might be expected from Amy Pohler & Carol Burnett. And...that's pretty much it. Simple story, bittersweet ending, certainly entertaining for the kids. No real surprises if you've seen the trailer or already know the studio's other films.
Yes, people expecting the epicness or grand adventure of Spirited Away will be sorely disappointed. There is adventure, but it's on the scale of a 10-cm-tall family, and the action is spent entirely inside and outside a house.

Also, please proofread your reviews.
