Recommend it? I want to see what all the Academy Award hype was about but I don't want to watch a kids movie per say. What do you guys think?

Ok good...it is on Redbox now so I guess I will give it a shot.I just didn't want to get wrangled into a kids movie lol...so if it is entertaining and is worth my 2 hours I will give it a go. I have been on a bit of a movie binge lately. Watched Shutter Island, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and Moneyball the past 3 nights. Watching movies is a good alternative to drinking

Loved it! very well done film. Not a typical Scorcese. He made it for his daughter.

Just got done with it. I thought it was pretty good...but I definitely didn't love it. I thought old Borat played a great train watchmen and his humor was very funny and subtle. I thought the actress that played Isabel and Hugo did awesome...same for the old man. Good movie...although totally different, I still thought the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was better. Hugo definitely wasn't a kiddie film but it just seemed like something was missing. But, don't regret watching it!
