Decent family movie
30 August 2018 | by Kat_StrangeSee all my reviews

Wonderful family movie, was a bit scary for my 5 year old so I wouldn't recommend for little ones. The only "gripe" I would have is it starts in the New York USA, but all the characters, family and supporting have a British accent, due to the British voice actors. So a little incontnuity there. But over all a cute movie
