Absolutely delightful fantasy for adult viewers, I believe that children should be kept to the book version. The movie is beautifully done, heartwarming--one of my favorite childrens books.

This movie was great. The book was really cute too, though. I think it's one of my favorites! When it comes out, I'm deff. buying it.

It's a movie that will touch everybody hearts!It is about a boy who face a lot of problems and learns a lot of problems! Where he becomes king of where the wild things are! He is beloved by them! This is a movie that never been made from a story. Some people it not a kind movie for really little kids. Cause it has a lot of violence whenever those tantrum scenes appear! But whatever! It's a kind of movie that shows when a lot of kids have those problems! This is A REALLY GOOD MOVIE!

I love this movie a lot! It is a very great and sad heartwarming story! It about a boy who faces a lot of emotion problems with his mom and his sister. He gets very angry often. And he meet these 7 giant playmates on this island! He becomes king to the island and becomes friends with Carol. The two get along very well! Until he finds out that Max isn't a king that he thought he was and goes out of control! But later he tries to find him and he decides it time to go back home! He leaves something for him like a token! Which he realizes that his mom is going through! This sounds like the kind of movie I want to see! Where the Wild Things Are will touch our hearts! This one of the best movies ever! I WANT TO GO SEE IT!

The closing song ("Hideaway") is exceptional and is one of those rare songs that adults will connect to their past.

The movie is better than the book! The "wild things" are physical manifestations of the emotions the boy feels. He confronts them all in this very well crafted film. Kids will get it only if adults help them see what is going on.

Before I could read I would gaze into the pictures of this book and wait till the images moved to life in my mind. Now it is a movie.
