How much did my 6-year-old daughter love Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie? When I asked her to try to measure her feelings for the flick she stretched her arms out as far as possible and said, “this much, wait more, but I can only reach this far.”
She was so enchanted with the film that she has decided that she is going to go as one of the characters, Weird Girl, for Halloween. But my girl loves the spooky, off kilter and wacky. When I asked her if her fellow friends and 1st graders would like it she said, “it would be too scary. But Violet would love it and so would Caroline! They like spooky stuff.” I asked her how old she thought kids should be to see Frankenweenie. Her answer was “eight or nine.” And I would have to agree, unless you have a Tim Burton loving lad or lass like mine.
So why else should you go to see Frankenweenie besides the ringing endorsement of my six-year-old? Here are five reasons why right here:
