    "There are already more than 3,800 reviews so this will be short. I watched this with our 9 year old because she got something called a Feisty Pet for Christmas. The toy reminded me of Gremlins and that she had not seen the movie. She says the movie is really good and that the Feisty Pet designer(s) must have seen the movie. One of the interesting things is that in addition to the actors playing the main characters, this movie features a number of faces recognizable as old time actors. These include Kenneth Toby, Scott Brady and Harry Carey, Jr. There were others whose names I could not recall. We streamed the movie via Amazon rental with no problems."

    "Gremlins is one of my favorite movies growing up as a 90s kid. I think this is one of those movies that every kid should watch this, a lot of things can be carried on in life that makes it fun, like saying "bright light" every time someone turns on a light in the house!"

    "Gremlins captures a wonder about Christmas that's totally lacking in popular culture today. Many of the cultural references are dated, but the story of a 'Mad Toy' gone wil is as entertaining for kids as it was 30 years ago. One of the best."

    "Kids would love to watch this movie before 12 years old! Because kids now do not believe in sant. Gremlins is a movie which is controversial: scary but fun I thought"

    "Gremlins is not a movie that kids should watch. The gremlins do inappropriate things and the movie is littered with adult only content. Keep your kids away from it!"
