In my opinion:
Are you looking for a cute movie for Halloween that has a great message? This movie is for you. I loved the colors, the message about friendship and the voices. My daughter loved the movie. She wanted to watch it over and over again.  I'm looking forward to watching it every year. A perfect tradition for the family.
This movie was also nominated for an Oscar last year. The story was sweet and perfect for any family movie night. I highly recommend this film especially for Halloween.
