Storyline Heading
Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must face his greatest fears.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Comedy - While most families will find this animated adventure/fantasy/comedy to be appropriate for most kids, there are some dark and potentially scary images for young kids, not to mention there is a theme of death that, while handled sensitively, may be too heavy for the youngest ones. That all said, the film is targeted at moviegoers of all ages, genders, and ethnicities though it has a strong Latin flavor.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good In broader terms, however, The Book of Life has sufficient mainstream appeal to provide solid entertainment for parents and children.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good But instead of being gaga for ghoulishness, this Mexican fiesta of animated splendor is packed with visual delights far more sunny than sinister as they burst forth as if flung from an over-packed pinata.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average But the dizzying, intricate imagery is so beautiful, and the Latin-inspired songs catchy enough that the overall effect is often enchanting.

NY Post Full Review
Average 'The Book of Life' alive with color, if not wit.
