Bridge to Terabithia

Genre: Sci-fi and Fantasy, Kids and Family; Starring: Zooey Deschanel, Josh Hutcherson, AnnaSophia Robb, Robert Patrick; Director: Gabor Csupo; Author: Jeff Stockwell; Release Date Wide: 02/16/2007; MPAA Rating: PG; Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures

Wouldn’t it blow your mind if you discovered an enchanted CG kingdom in the woods behind your house? In Bridge to Terabithia, the two middle schoolers who stumble onto a whole new world don’t seem all that wowed. And the movie — which never decides if it’s a fantasy or coming-of-age story — spends a lot of time away from Terabithia; that also leaches out the wonder. The boy seems more excited that Zooey Deschanel is his hottie music teacher than he is to see tree men in the forest.
