    A Movie That Helps to Look Back Into Yourself
    My Vibe was to watch a movie but no so animated as well as somewhat realistic. I watched the trailer for 10 secs and jumped in to the movie. I Recommend this movie specially for adults to understand the meaning behind the story. This will be great for children as well animated characters and the plot as well.

    Acting By the whole crew is marvelous and The characters are well placed with the identity we know about their acting.

    As a adult or a growing teenager this movie will help you to remember your lost passions and lost dreams as a child. After watched this movie I felt how much I left the past of myself and how the past really affected and how that past still lives in side you.

    This movie will bring back your inner child and raises a question mark about yourself. At last It let you answer whether you lost the inner child and how it inner child self of yourself lived inside you all of the time. IF will definitely helps you to get down to your past memory lane.

    LOVED IT!!!
    I loved this movie. I will admit that the beginning is a little confusing at first, but you will understand as the story goes on. I love the animation and the characters. I think it was an amazing idea for a movie and that it was well thought out and executed. It had me smiling and laughing throughout the whole movie. It was just such a wholesome, fun, and enjoyable movie to watch. I'm 14 and a lot of people my age would probably think it's pretty stupid (mostly boys but some girls) but I really enjoyed it. Also, you couldn't have asked for a more legendary cast. OH MY GOSH! This cast was INSANE! I looked up the cast and was disappointed in myself for not noticing most of the actors voices. Most of the people on this cast I want to meet in real life. Anyway, I would totally recommend this movie for anyone who is a kid, a kid at heart, who has a big imagination, or that just loves movies in general.

    10/10 :)

    I can't WAIT to watch it with everyone I love...
    I somewhat agree with other reviewers that this is a movie more for adults reminding us of our inner child... But at the same time, I feel like this is a perfect movie to watch with my older kids. Because just like the 12 yr old Bea, they could stand to be reminded (while they're still young) that they are still kids and always can be at heart.

    Beautiful message in a beautiful package played out by extremely talented actors/actresses.

    I can't wait to see more from Miss Cailey Fleming. Her performance was on point and made this old lady shed a plethora of tears.

    I was surprised to hear/recognized the voices of a star studded cast. They chose wisely when getting on board with this movie.

    It is 100% family friendly, especially for those of us with older kids who will probably enjoy it more for the message than little ones would. It was a refreshing break from the drama of real life & a direct reminder of that need to take a break.

    HIGHLY recommend everyone to give it a look see.

    Film for adults who want to wallow in depression
    IF is not a kids film. In the first 10 minutes we are "treated" to a depressing film reel of old clips where we find out the mother has died and the father is seriously ill with what is only ever described as "a broken heart"

    John Krazinsky misses the point of Imaginary Friend type films, such as Drop Dead Fred, or Harvey. Instead of mayhem and fun, we have chronically depressed imaginary friends who do nothing except yearn for lost love.

    There are no jokes, my child was so confused, bored and upset by this film that I wish we could unsee it somehow.

    The film even pays homage to Harvey, which is playing on an old TV set in the grandmother's house. I found myself trying to watch a tiny clip of Harvey (the giant rabbit) rather than the movie because it was so bad.

    Reminding ourselves of childhood memories has no meaning for children. Dwelling too much on the past probably isn't a good idea for adults either.

    A movie for adults that children can watch
    IF is a nuanced, well acted movie about the mechanisms we use to cope with trauma and fear. I'm not one to leave reviews usually, but the point to the movie has sailed right over a lot of reviewers heads here.

    The central character to this is a tween, a brilliantly acted, relatable girl who's had to face more than her fair share of grief early in her life. The movie doesn't spend time spelling out the exact details of the situation which probably leaves other reviewers a bit lost, but right from the start it hits you with the feels and it continues the whole way through. I haven't been this emotionally exhausted in a long time, as a 40 yo father. If you have a modicum of empathy and the ability to fill in the blanks, you'll feel the same.

    My eight year old didn't quite get it or why her parents were so distraught, however!
