Critic Reviews for 5 Children and It
Five posh First World War sprogs are despatched to Uncle Kenneth Branagh's Gothic pile in a Devon nook. It's a ghastly film
Its eccentric charms and light humor will most certainly win over anyone looking for a brisk family adventure.
Audience Reviews for 5 Children and It
CAST: Kenneth Branagh, Zoë Wanamaker, Freddie Highmore, Eddie Izzard, Jonathan Bailey, Jessica Claridge, Poppy Rogers, Tara Fitzgerald, Alex Jennings, John Sessions, Norman Wisdom, Duncan Preston DIRECTED BY: John Stephenson SUMMARY: While their father is fighting on the front lines, five children find themselves bunking at their uncle's estate, where they befriend a fairy called It (voiced by the hilarious Eddie Izzard), who helps them uncover the mysteries of the large mansion in which they now live. This high-spirited tale finds It bringing joy, laughter and luck to the kids' lives, as the grown-ups contend with the painfully adult challenges of living in a time of war. MY THOUGHTS: "This is a movie for the kids. My niece's and nephew liked it a lot, I on the other hand thought it was a bit boring. But it had it's moments of humor. Had a some what sad story, and had a good lesson about not being selfish. But still much more a film for the kids. Good cast, and a good young cast as well."

|Psammead:||I will grant you your wishes, but I have a list of demands. My needs are minimal, but what I need is a stateroom with a sunken bath with a tap that goes backwards and forwards. And a toothbrush made of gold, not the bristles, of course, but the bit you hold. Gold bristles would hurt my gums, you see. A palace with white sand spread on the floor, from the Bahamas, I think, and a shower cap. And a yak.|
