Disney did a pretty good job of dubbing the movie in English. At the movie theater I was surrounded by annoying little children. And when I mean annoying, they wouldn’t stop talking or yelling at the screen, or sit still. But they all seemed to enjoy themselves. As an adult, I liked the story, characters and the animation of it.
However, the only thing I have a bone to pick with is that the story didn’t really have a point to it. My sister advised it was missing a true climax. Despite this, it’s still a cute movie you might want to take your kids to.
If you are interested in anime, or just a plain good animated movie check out some of the rest of Miyazaki’s movies including: Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Howl’s Flying Castle.
