Let the wild rumpus start!

Nine-year-old Max runs away from home and sails across the sea to become king of the land Where the Wild Things Are. King Max rules a wondrous realm of gigantic fuzzy monsters - but being king may not be as carefree as it looks! Filmmaker Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich) directs a magical, visually astonishing film version of Maurice Sendak's celebrated children's classic, starring an amazing cast of screen veterans and featuring young Max Records in a fierce and sensitive performance as Max.

Thats a freaky coincidence. Was just reading about this movie on Wikipedia and spotted this deal within 2 mins. Hear its good so gonna take a chance. Heat

Good deal, but a god awful film which destroyed my childhood memories - absolutely weird and slightly disturbing

Yes! but still a great film, me and the kids loved it. Im in.

Loved it very much, weird maybe - but certainly wonderful...

Not a great film IMO. Mary and Max is the real deal, great film for the kids and adults a like..

This movie made me really uncomfortable watching it, it was like a horror movie. A good film for psychology students?

Brilliant film, excellent music, don't hesitate.

When the price is good, you know you should ... When the price is bad, you'd wish you had.

It's an excellent film, it's just that whilst it's marketed as a children's movie, it's patently made for adults. If you're expecting a feel-good movie with a happy ending like almost every non-Pixar Hollywood product, you're going to be disappointed.

That said, my children loved it- how many times have you seen a film specifically about the pain and anguish of growing up? 'A Christmas Story' comes to mind, and maybe 'Stand By Me', and that's about it. 'Where the Wild Things Are' provided an insight into the emotional impact of the identity crisis that all children go through at some point, and it should be applauded for kicking against the standard Hollywood schlock that both adults and children are bombarded with.

We are all still kids, just older now

you speak for yourself fatso.... nananenana !!!! Gonna tell my mum

This film is absolutely terrible. I wouldn't watch it again if you paid ME the £4.99. Which was a shame as I really liked the book as a child - as do my kids.

Seconded. This seems to be a real Marmite movie. I can sit through some strange films but this was painful. I've never read the book and was expecting good things, but I found virtually every character to be hateful and self-destructing. Maybe I just had an even better childhood than I thought if this is meant to be a reflection on what it's like to grow up.

It is a bit dark- the lead monster being played by Tony Soprano doesn't help !

Not recommended for sensitive kids (or adults!)

good film, great soundtrack too hot

Defo a Marmite film, personally I hated it! Visually stunning though

I thought it was an awful film. Very boring
