    If you have kids, like action movies, like martial arts flicks, like really funny comedies, want to see an animated movie that actually has a great story and isn't necessarily a Pixar production, go see this movie. Don't let the fact that Jack Black is the main character sway you, he's nowhere near as annoying as he might be (or can be, in this case). Heck, it has Jackie Chan as the voice of a kung-fu monkey.

    Kung. Fu. Monkey.

    Seriously, go see it. It's awesome.

    From the first glance I thought it was just another stereotype kung fu flick, but hey it was enjoyable. I can't wait for DVD to come out. :D

    I most likely won't see it in the theater. Too much other stuff out/about to come out that I want to see instead -- Iron Man (again), Hulk, Wall-E, Wanted, Hancock, etc., etc., etc. But this --
    -- made my Netflixing it a certainty.

    I saw it and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Had somre great laugh-out-loud moments, to be sure, and some really nice action sequences, though a large part of my wishes that the entire movie had been stylized like the opening animation.

    Ska-doosh!

    Yeah, that was the first CGI Animated movie I've enjoyed since the Incredibles. The voice casting was top-notch, with Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogan and David Cross standing out as my favorites. I wish they would have spent more time on the 5 though. The fights scenes were great.

    I saw this one over the weekend. It was great. Al Swearengen was the bad guy, and 2 of the "Furious Five" were David Cross and Seth Rogan. I was kind of disappointed old Al never said his catch-phrase, though :(  .

    The wife and I saw this last Saturday night in IMAX. It was a really great movie, and I appreciated that the humor is all self contained and appropriate for kids.

    Most kid's movies nowadays either are making fun of something else, or have too much crude humor or swearing.

    My sister and I saw the movie last sunday. It's the best animated movie since Finding Nemo. I love everything about the movie. It's got a great message and the humor was top notch. It is worth it.

    Very well-done movie. Good script, good art direction. Voice cast was superb. Plus..."There is no charge for awesomeness...or attractiveness."
