2009 M Contains scary scenes and mild language.

In this breathtaking stop-motion animation based on Neil Gaiman's novel, curious young Coraline (voiced by Dakota Fanning) unlocks a door in her family's home and is transported to a universe that strangely resembles her own -- only better. But when her Other Mother (Teri Hatcher) doesn't want Coraline to return to reality, our heroine must summon an amazing amount of courage to go home and save her family.

fantastic animation, good storyline, fairly noir/dark but very enjoyable. Not just for kids!

I too agree with others. This was a good movie, good concept but we watched it before the kids, just in case, and it would've freaked mine out. I didn't realise there was an age restriction on kids movies. Still a good watch however.

Good movie, definately not for the little ones. My 8 year old did have a few reservations after watching it. There is definately a sinister touch to it for the young. But otherwise we really enjoyed it.

Is this advertised as being a kids movie? Sounds like people hired it thinking it's for kids. It isn't for youngsters. A pretty dark storyline, but excellent animation.

An enjoyable story but creepy, very creepy! Definitely wouldn't recommend watching it with kids.

Good movie but not for younger kids, wouldn't recommend for under 8 or 9. Lots happening, interesting ideas. Dark, clever and creepy. Watched it with my 12 year old son and it led to some interesting discussion!

clever animation and storyline, could be a bit scary for little kids, yet 8yr old seemed to enjoy it and was intrigued with the idea of "another mother and father".

A stunning animated movie, a story only Gaiman could come up with. Pure fantasy and a visual pleasure to watch.

I wouldn't have kids watch this at all. Not only is the storyline convoluted and very dark, but I would think kids would be scared of some of the characters!
