Move Review: Spiderwick Chronicles - PG

We took my nephews to see Spiderwick Chronicles, and it is a very good movie.

Jared, his brother Simon, his sister Mallory and his mother move into the house of his great aunt Lucinda. Jared soon finds a book called 'The Field Guide', which tells about fairies, goblins and the ogre Mulgarath. The guide was written by Arthur Spiderwick, Lucinda's father. It also explains about the 'circle' around the house which was created by Arthur to keep the house safe. Mulgarath wants the book, and the power it will give him. Eventually, he gets a couple of pages from the book, and is able to remove the circle of protection. I won't tell you what happens to Mulgarath, but everything turns out ok in the end, and a 'reunion' takes place at the end.

I recommend this movie; it is very entertaining, there is no offensive language, no sexual content.

Cross-posted on The World...IMHO

I haven't seen this one yet, but my husband and I are always looking for clean movies for our family. We found a rental company similar to Netflix but it only carries decent movies. Check it out at
