Cute Children's Tale
Ponyo is a cute, endearing movie for children about a little goldfish who falls in love with a little human boy and consequently wants to become human so that she can be close to him. For those looking for a retelling of Disney's "The Little Mermaid" this movie is not for you - this is not a romance, but instead is a story about the strong bond of friendship between two small children. My children (3 and 4) really enjoy the movie and have already begun to memorize the catchy pre and post film tunes. This movie would make a good addition to your children's video library.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Loosely based on the story Little Mermaid
I am a huge Studio Gibli and Hayao Miyazaki fan and the overall story and characters were great, but I was some what disappointed with this film after watching Spirited Away it's a step back for the studio. It is loosely based on the Hans Christian Anderson story of the Little Mermaid. While the kids enjoyed, and simple enough for toddlers to enjoy, the adults in the house that enjoyed previous Gibli fils like Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke were falling asleep. It just lacked in the detail, story building and excitement that the other films had. It was rather slow moving.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As always this film does not disappoint to stimulate you with the art direction and the creativity of the creatures.
