A watchable comedy-fantasy movie

It's obvious that the main audience target are children but the movie has enough elements to keep adults watch the movie till the end. Some mild horror-like elements appear trough the film, but nothing too scary. Mostly you'll enjoy the fantasy and comedy elements. The story is kind of interesting but lacks some more depth in the main parts and character side story's. Connections between characters are never really expressed and constructed trough the film. Characters have a comedic appearance with a great acting parts from Owen Vaccaro and Cate Blanchett. Overall, a watchable fantasy comedy movie for a quite evening.

the movie is OK, I don't know what the fuss is about.

Jack Black is entertaining enough. A strange movie, with some really wierd scenes.The sets and effects were fun. The chair and flying leaves gargoyle thing were fun. My 8 year daughter has seen it, who was 7 at the time. She did not have nightmares or cry or was terrified or any of the other hysterics that I have read about in the other reviews. She watched it a second time but was bored half way through. The people who say this movie is unsuitable for children are the kind that are either radical christians who are against anything that might look like it isn't straight from the pages of the bible, or the super snowflake triggerati who are raising precious princesses that must be shielded from all harm, naughty words or anything else that might affect their fragile sensibilities. I did have to remind my kid for the 1 millionth time after watching this, and harry potter, and all the other magic obsessed films they seem to have these days, that magic isn't real. I don't know necessary that is, but in my opinion it is better to be sure that your kids are well able to distinguish reality from fantasy.

The House with a Clock in Its Walls: Take what you'd expect, and that's basically it

Jack Black is in a redemption phase for me, he hasn't been funny for a while not since Gulliver's Travels (2010) in fact. This certainly isn't doing much for him, but it's a step in the right direction.

Starring him, Cate Blanchett and Kyle MacLachlan this family feature is quite dark in places, lacks enough laughs to be called a comedy and really brings no surprises to the table.

What I'm saying is that The House with a Clock in Its Walls is basically a very generic paint by numbers Hollywood family movie, it just has a competent cast to rise it above mediocrity.

Sure I'm not the demographic, but I liked Goosebumps (2015) which was a very similar formula. Black is great, Blanchett is great, the whole thing though was played a tad safe for my liking.

The Good:

Cast deliver

A couple of chuckles are to be found

The Bad:

Some poor cgi

Not funny enough for a comedy

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

There is hope for Black yet

Kids shouldn't lead films, they suck. In fact they should be seen and not heard.......scratch that not seen and not heard.
