OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 83 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:Most of the children loved "The Water Horse." Only a very few rated it as low as average. Highly Recommended!
TEENS:There were only a few teen male reviews and they are mixed. One male loved it and one rated it average. There are no ten female reviews.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:There's only one male review and it's above average. Of the three female reviews, one loved it and two disliked it. There aren't enough reviews in this age group to offer a recommendation one way or another.
ADULTS:A little better than half the males really enjoyed "The Water Horse." The remaining reviews were actually decent considering the type of movie this is (geared towards children). The female reviews are GREAT! Almost everyone loved this movie. Many rated it very high with no one disliking it. Highly Recommended as a GREAT FAMILY MOVIE!
