The kids love it! In fact when it was over they were already asking me to buy the DVD.  A little strange, I fancy considering that the overall storyline was a little complex and perhaps a little too intense for kids to really grasp or thoroughly enjoy.

For me personally I am a little lukewarm as to how I feel about the movie.  The mouse was adorably cute, the lessons passed on to the kids about courage, honour and integrity is refreshing and I liked journeying into the ‘Louvre’ like world.  However I felt that it lacked in areas of being outright fun and humourous!  Perhaps a little dry witted? I dare say……

Still it has the makings of a Classic! Even though it is not entirely original!….see what I mean about being lukewarm? *grins*
