Very silly, not nearly as good as the first movie. But my 3 year old loves it, and sings the songs which is the sweet st thing ever. Some of the dinosaurs are whiners. Worth a try, he's watched it many many times. And no, I do not plunk him in front of the tv often. He's not afraid of much, and knows it's just pretend, so if you have a child who is very sensitive then maybe skip it. Not that it is scary at all but for a sensitive kid, maybe.
