Mel. Have you ever visited Common Sense Media? They have movie, game, book reviews, etc. They have an age recommendation and plenty of parent input. Check it out here: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/t...
my son watched it when he was 3 with his cousins and he loved it! i guess it all depends on the child, and their level of maturity, my son got that it was a little scary, but he really enjoyed the story, as matter of fact, he watches it all the time.
Thank you! This site: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/t... will save us much trouble. We are very fussy about any TV media and need a good review site.
We don't watch a lot of TV or Movies, but this Polar Express is a family favorite. I do agree the train ride is scary. My kids enjoyed it at 5 and 6 years. I would recommend watching it first. Have a tissue handy, it is a good one for adults too. You can always save it for next year, better safe than sorry.
