I have to see this movie. I recall reading (looking at the pictures) this book a long time ago. That or it was read to me. And I recall it being a great story. When I heard it was being made into a feature film I was intrigued. I wasn't sure what they would do. Would they make it an animation or cartoon ? Would they make it with muppets ? I heard Spike Jonze was directing and for some reason I heard Spike Lee....so, I thought 'weird', the dude who did 'Do the right thing' and 'Malcolm X' is doing a kids movie? ...anyway, next time I saw the preview I kept my ears open. After the first time I saw the preview, I thought...wow...I think this will do well. It looks great. I WILL go see this flick.
