  • 3 stars Strange little animated movie. Age old theme/story told with Japanese twists. Who figured that ham sandwiches are part of Japanese culture??? Mildly entertaining at best for adults, kids will probably love it.
  • 5 stars my 4 year old loved it
  • 5 stars Like most studio Ghibli movies, this one is a precious gem.
  • amazing. beautiful stunning.
  • Fantastic movie! My six year old daughter was completely enthralled throughout the entire 100 minutes and she talked about it for days after (which I've never heard her do before). We both highly recommend Ponyo!
  • this movie rocks hard
  • If you are a fan of Hayao this is a great movie to see. for those of you parents who are complaining about the characters in the film influencing your childrens idealisms and perceptions on parenthood, well quite honestly if you feel as this movie will create such an inpact on your children then you are obviously not doing a good job as parents. They should be looking to you as influences as apposed to fictional cartoon characters. Oh boy.

  • that movie is amazing i watched it just on wednesday at globe cinema its so cute n funny
  • Just plain weird movie, who leaves 2 five year old kids alone during a disaster? Or opens a beer when fighting with her husband. Maybe not the best kids movie...
