I have rated this as 4 Stars because it is clearly aimed at a family audience and as such it delivers great entertainment that both adults and children can watch without parents having to be concerned about violence/sex or anything else they may not want their children to see.
If you want some thing for all the family to enjoy then watch this.
I loved this film as a child when it came out on video and so the DVD was an essential add to my collection. It still makes me cry but is a fantastic film for everyone. It was nice for me to watch for the nostalgia but my husband, who had never watched it before, enjoyed it too. It is a lovely film and it is just so cute!
After having seen this film on TV our five year old grandson fell in love with Mighty Joe, so we purchased the DVD, it's a wonder it is not worn out having been played virtually non stop every time he is here, a very worthwhile purchase.
Fantastic heart warming film w/ State-of-the art SPFX! Charlize never looked more beautiful. Rick Baker's finest achievement! Joe looks totally "real." Only way it could be better is if it were available on Blu-ray.
