    "My Neighbor Totoro is a beautifully animated anime movie, that explores the magic of nature. This is more of a kids' movie, however, some adults will also enjoy it as well. Disney recently acquired the license for this anime movie and have changed the voices for the dubbed version, so if you have seen this in the past this could be somewhat strange to hear the voice changes."

    "this is a tough pick considering all of the powerhouse films that have been cranked out of Studio Ghibli. But my opinion My neighbor totoro blows the rest of them right outta the water. what sets this apart is the story. the stunning animation is there but the story line of this movie really takes it to the nest level"

    "I bought this because I really thought my daughters would enjoy it, but they actually we're kind of bored by it, which was surprising. They watched the first half, and then moved on to something else. My kids usually have a pretty good attention span, and can sit through movies, so this one really wasn't for them."

    "This is the kind of film that will stay with you after watching it. The first time i watched My Neighbor Totoro someone is translating this to me because it was in Japanese but despite that i enjoyed watching it. The best thing about this Japanes animation movie is bcoz of its heart tugging storyline. "

    "Oh my goodness! I love this movie. My kids and I have watched it so many times. I love how it shows the children that there are positives even in the most negative of situations. It has helped my children when we moved and when we lost our dog. I think this is on of the best animated films for children."

    "My kids seemed to enjoy it a bit but not that much. I thought that the movie was a little silly, even for an animated movie. The story had potential but seemed a bit forced and never quite got there for me. The saving grace is that the animation was done really well and it was easy to watch."

    "My Neighbor Totoro isn't for everyone. There isn't much of a plot, there aren't any villains or anything. It's just about a family moving to the countryside. That's not to say it's not sweet or charming, it's got that in droves. But it can be a little boring."
