1.0 out of 5 starsWait for Prime but still won't be worth lost time.

Oh where do I start? The place is called wonderland but the movie is called wonder park. It starts off promising but gets sad quick when the girls mom gets cancer and must go away. Then it gets so confusing all of us still cannot understand what this movie is trying to say. I feel a bit of clockwork Orange is mixed into this which is really creepy. My 6 year old keeps saying, I don't like this, it's creepy, it's wierd but can't tell me why. Idk.
There is some drug references in this movie which is uncomfortable.
So, she goes to math camp because she is grieving....but she doesn't want to leave her Dad so she get the bus to stop and the entire movie is about her in the woods in her imaginary Wonder Park which at the end....she goes home all in the time of 30 mins. Then Mom rings the doorbell and says she is okay. Whaaaaaaaaaat?
Reading up on the background, the director got in trouble for harrassment and was unable to finish the movie so the studio slapped this together. ****aahhhh..now that's about the only thing that makes sense.**"""
I wouldn't rent again and I am glad I didn't get stuck buying this movie.

1.0 out of 5 starsScary for children
Verified purchase
This movie has some very scary and heavy themes for children - Mom gets very sick and must leave her daughter for a long time without much of an explanation (I'm sick and have to go away to get better). Daughter develops pretty severe anxiety and imagines terrible things happening to her Dad while she is heading away to camp. That's as far as we got before my child started crying. Truly, this is an awful movie for kids, and raises issues (without warning in preview) that most children are not mature enough to handle. Scary. Stay away.

1.0 out of 5 starsI would not have even given this 1 star

Very misleading trailer and not one word about the main character's mother having a serious illness. The movie starts off fun and lighthearted, quickly taking a hair-pin turn into darkness, despair, loss, grief, and just sadness. Children naturally have a fear of losing a parent and this movie is just awful for children under the age of about 10-12. Especially if you have a child that is sensitive. Save your money. We turned it off within the first 15 minutes and my daughter cried later in the day when she was thinking about the movie.

5.0 out of 5 starsAn Emotional movie.
Verified purchase
An amazing movie.

this is a very deep and emotional movie about a daughter's journey when her mom is sick. Be forewarned reading down there will be spoilers of the movie in here and the only reason I went into detail is because there so many bad reviews of parents who did not watch the movie before allowing their children/grandchildren to watch. so please do the creators a favor and actually watch movies before you let your children.

the movie is about a mother daughter relationship.
when the mother's sickness progressed into something that becomes very detrimental to her health she had to go away for treatment. The movie follows June the daughter through this journey of the unknown. she tries to cope by playing with the wonderland/park her and her mother created when she was very little but the emotions of missing her mother become so overwhelming to her that she has to put it all away and not think about it. She becomes protective over her father & so focused on taking care of things that she shuts all of her friends out. Her aunt and uncle come to visit her who proclaim that they had talked to her mother and they brought something to hopefully encourage her with her wonderland/park the daughter becomes aggravated and hurt but they would not listen to her to stop playing with wonderland/park that she grabs the blueprints and throws them in the fire. As she watches them burn out of her anger she sees her name written by her mother which she tries to grab but her father stops her, she apologizes to him and she runs upstairs and the piece that had her name written on it flies out the chimney, it's at this point that her father decides that she needs to get away from the house so he signs her up for summer math camp. On the bus she finds a note from her father and the only thing she focused on was that he missed her, she flashes through a series of things that she imagines him going through and his depression so she quickly talks a friend of hers into making the bus stop and she's going to use the trails to get back home. Once off the bus & out of site she starts her way back towards town when the piece of blueprints that flew out the chimney is in front of her floating in the air. when she tries to grab it she messes she ends up chasing in into the woods where she finds remnants of wonderland/Park.

It turns out that the park has been shut down for some time and the stuffed animals that once brought everyone in the park so much joy had turned and was now wreaking havoc in the park. A cloud of darkness lumes over part of the park. June soon meets up with the animals and learns what has happened in the park and informed them that her and her mother were the ones that created wonderland/park. Later in the movie when she meets up with peanut the Wonder creator inside of wonderland/Park she learns that he is much like her, when the voice of her mother disappeared from her and him both they fell into a darkness that created havoc around them both.

After peanut is taken June learns that she must have courage and strength to save peanut, save wonderland/park and get back to her father.

After saving the park she returns home to her father and informs him that she's not going back to summer camp while getting the box that had wonderland/park in it out. they work on wonderland/park together over many months. She creates tons of new works all the way down into their backyard and then her mother's treatment was successful she returns home.

The moral of the story is to never give up. Even when there is little hope it is still hope.

1.0 out of 5 starsMade my kid cry.
Verified purchase
I hate how all of these movies are ridiculously depressing anymore. And anxiety provoking. I had no idea about the secret content of this film. Rented for it a long car ride for my six year old. Suddenly she started sobbing uncontrollably and said she didn’t want to watch it anymore. After she told me why she got upset i was pissed- this content should be disclosed to parents before viewing. Things like this could be triggering for kids and parents who have gone through similar Situations. Especially those people aren’t expecting to see this crap during what should be a fun movie. She didn’t even finish watching it, my older daughter didn’t wanna watch it after seeing her sister’s reaction and we wasted our money.

5.0 out of 5 starsWhat a splendiferous way to bring a dark subject to light
Verified purchase
I am a kid at heart. I have cared for children. I am expecting at the moment and thinking of all the lessons I must teach my precious flower before they have to enter the real world. I am a children's book author and I loved this movie. The themes and messages in this movie are very real ones - dealing with loss, grief, anger, and emotions, in general, is such a difficult thing for a person let alone a child. Giving them a lesson such as this movie which shows them: their actions have consequences, they are not alone in their pain, they have to make right the things they do wrong, and that you have to look for the light that surrounds the darkness, to believe in yourself when you feel no one else will. Yes, this show has a heavy theme - but it's all done in cute ways with comedic relief and vibrant colors. It's all so important for children to learn and if it scares your kids or if it makes them cry, then here is a perfect opportunity. Use it to open a conversation with your child about the realities of the world in a way that helps them to understand. It doesn't diminish their childhood to learn about life but in fact, makes them better for it. That's my two cents anyway. I cried. I loved it. I will definitely let my baby watch it. And it will be splendiferous.

5.0 out of 5 starsA beautiful story for adults and kids about working through hard problems - LOVE THE PI SONG!
Verified purchase
June and her Mom have a beautiful special relationship that is the focal point of this movie. Unlike most kids shows/movies, June is an unabashedly brilliant and creative child with terrific, caring, bright friends in awe of her mind. She has 2 supportive parents who encourage her despite the inevitable costs of her enthusiasm. She is a child inventor/engineer that makes math and applied physics remarkably fun developing rides for her imaginary theme park - Wonderland. June imagines rides with her Mom constructing rides from parts and pieces and origami. Her Mom becomes unwell and June has to process that emotionally. We see how the effect this has on June’s relationships and on Wonderland. We have watched this movie dozens of times with our 3 year old - she loves it. I have often had to explain to our daughter that Mommy has to go to the hospital so many of themes went uncomfortably close to home. However, this movie was so well written it never stopped being a fun adventure. We very much enjoyed the level of support and encouragement June’s family provided her, the creative pulse that was encouraged, the background concepts that math and sciences are awesome, the AWE SUM PI SONG, and of course - the happy ending.
