Old schoolers who can appreciate Harry Nilsson's music and the somewhat psychedelic animation will appreciate 'The Point'. I liked it well enough as a child to remember it all these years and wish I could see it again. After watching it again last night, I purchased my own copy. We have yet to try it on our 5 and 7 year old kids.... it might be a little slow for some kids but those who can sit and listen may enjoy it.
Oh Blockbuster.com I love your services. I was reading some comments on RottenTomatoes.com & saw one of the blue guys from this movie. When it used to come on tv I recorded it and me and my girls watched it all the time. So I decided to look it up here & low & behold you have it. I'm going to rent it, invite my girls & their kids up to watch it. Can't wait. It's just such an enjoyable little movie with such a fun way of showing people how to except someone who might be a bit different.
