Usual Hollywood treatment of English children's books. I found it poor on character development . And too much running and Bad Guy bashing.
To watch this is has to be raining out side for at least 10 days.

I thought this was a fun movie that can easily be enjoyed by anyone of any age. The humor will keep you laughing, and the acting isn't horrible, as it usually is in this type of movie.

A wonderful adventure that had the kids laughing and loving it. Some of the more "slapstick" violence did disturb our four year old, however.

The movie felt a little dated.
I didn't like it but my kids did, ages 9 and 7 yrs.

The four-inch-tall Clock family secretly share a house with the normal-sized Lender family, "borrowing" such items as thread, safety pins, batteries and scraps of food. However, their peaceful co-existence is disturbed when evil lawyer Ocious P. Potter steals the will granting title to the house, which he plans to demolish in order to build apartments. The Lenders are forced to move, and the Clocks face the risk of being exposed to the normal-sized world.

Pod Clock: A Borrower is quiet, conscientious, and inconspicuous. We don't steal; we borrow.
