Well, I just caught this film at a theater that was still playing it. Just started getting into the Ghibli films, and have seen only 4 so far, including this one. Just too bad that this movie was hardly promoted, as the only time I saw a trailer for it, was when I went to see Beauty and the Beast in 3-D. I did feel the ending was a little abrupt, as if just suddenly ended. I won't get into details there, but the only thing that really bothered me. But overall, a fun experience and well worth the time. I am one that prefers the dubbed version, as I am rarely in a mood to read subtitles. While I tend to find Will Arnett annoying whenever he appears on TV, I thought he was really great, and in a serious role. He seemed like a natural fit there. I would give it 4 stars out of 5.
