and he did.
Dick and I loved this movie...we climbed right into the screen and ran with those wild things! Their dialog reminded me so much of my childhood friends and I in the 50's/60's, running in the ditches and alleys of my neighborhood.... we were wild too. "Wit-a-woo, wit-a wooo"
Don't worry if you don't have any kids to go to this movie with...if you need a good escape... seeing "Where The Wild Things Are" is a way to go back to your childhood again and play a little. It was heartfelt.
Note: This is not a movie for very young children or those that are easily scared I wouldn't think. It's about a 9 year old boy. The wild things are children with feelings....each wild thing represented a different feeling. There were a lot of teenagers in the movie theater settled in to enjoy the ride..I'm sure they had loved the book. Bottom line, only you know what is best for your child....have them watch the trailers before you go.
