The Story: A boy named Nemo is troubled by vivid dreams, none of which are real. Then one night, messengers are sent by the king of Slumberland to bring Nemo to be a playmate to the princess of Slumberland. When Nemo arrives, his naive tolerance of a troublemaker ends up unleashing a living nightmare that only he has any hope of stopping.
Sadly, the rest of the movie doesn’t live up to the animation. Although the story is fine overall, it has a weak ending and gaping holes that are never explained. The holes can perhaps be attributed to the dream-like tone of the film, but even so, they lessen the impact of the story. Also, despite the film having many good messages, a troubling hint of moral ambiguity lingers at the end.
Content Overview: Mild crude humor. Some mild violence and scariness that is perhaps slightly more intense than usual for a G-rated movie.
