It is a movie for kids, but also targeting the parents and/or grandparents that take those kids. It is not as good as the first 2 in the series. Everyone laughs in the theater at key times making it more enjoyable. It clocks in at like 1:50, so it isn't overly long. The pacing is good, as with most kid’s movies. I think the B plot line is well over kids’ heads, but smacking parent’s right in the face. I thought it was a well-executed B plot line, though Ina disagrees. If it is a hot day and you have a kid, it is probably worth the 2 hours in the A/C of calm and quiet and you may enjoy it with your little one.
