Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 91 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They all loved "PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS."
TEENS:All but one of the females enjoyed this movie very much with most loving it. One males loved "PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS" and the other four rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:There aren't enough reviews in this group to be very accurate so I would suggest that you look at the adult reviews for guidance.
