This movie reminded me very much of the Disney franchise that I had come to enjoy as a kid, though I was a little confused at the beginning, not knowing if I was at a state fair or at Disneyland, a la the Small World ride. The plot was so interesting, as were the special effects, which probably distracted me from work.
When I went next door to cook lunch, I found dad asleep while watching it. He advised me later that the beginning was slow, but I would have to disagree. George Clooney was an interesting character and I was surprised to see Hugh Laurie in this movie.
