I thought this was fantastic, definitely what a summer movie should be. A lot of great cameos too.

I can't wait to see this. This weekend I moved my daughter into the ASU dorms and was a weekend thing so we didn't get to go. All my friends though loved it so far.

Fantastic. Even our 11 year old who hates movies (I know, I know, crazy) loved it. Super fun and heartwarming.

I wasn't going to watch this, because I'd heard it was extremely derivative. Several here have liked it, and a friend wanted to watch it on Friday. Well, I'm glad the theater was a good handicapped accessible one, because I enjoyed this one quite a lot.

[The reverse Sleeping Beauty moment was so empowering. Loved that the most out of an awesome load of fun movie.]

Very derivative, but I enjoyed it very much.

Yeah I kept thinking this is Tron, Ready Player One etc but at a certain point I realized I'd had to pee for about 20 minutes and was holding it because I liked the movie.

Saw this today, thought it was pretty good. Ryan Reynolds is such a good looking dude. Loved Channing’s scenes - hilarious!
