Chad, friend of the site:
I think that ParaNorman is a movie that suffers from poor characters, lame humor, and a lackluster script. While it does contain positive messages about finding the good in people around you, not bullying others because they are different, and being who you are no matter what others say, it’s just not a film that I would recommend.
So did he like it or didn’t he? I’m having a hard time telling…
Seriously though, this sounds about like what I would have expected and frankly, the high ratings from critics confused me as well.
