Movie review: The Spiderwick Chronicles ***

Rating: PG for scary creature action and violence, peril and some thematic elements Run Time: 1 hour, 37 minutes

Some films are perfect for the pint-sized viewer. This fantasy-infused adventure is rich with eye-popping visual effects, colorful characters and tear-jerking family dynamics. But adults should be warned that the depth stops there - compared to other myth-and-magic flicks such as "The Lord of the Rings" or "Pan's Labyrinth," "Spiderwick" feels like "Sesame Street."
