The story is about a young boy goes on a magical journey to New York City with a group of insects inside a gigantic peach. The animation is very good in this movie, but I liked the book more then the film because I thought this movie was a bit to dark and kind of dull at times.

Pretty and visually inventive animation from the same director as The Nightmare Before Christmas aimed squarely at children. It's not as witty but it does share some of its best qualities.

Children might like it, but not worth adults time

Based on the popular, yet sometimes controversial children's book by James Dahl, we follow "James" (Paul Terry) from his menial life with his mean aunts, the oddly named "Spiker" (Joanna Lumley) and her sister "Sponge" (Miriam Margoyles, who lends her voice to "Glowworm" in the animated segment).

The young boy dreams of one day going to New York City to see the biggest building in the world, the Empire State Building. However, his aunts want to keep him in their home as nothing more than a maid.

One day, "James" meets an old man (Pete Postlethwaite) who offers him a bag of what he calls "aligator tongues". These strange glowing, green animated things changes a peach in his aunts' garden, and causes it to grow to unbelievable proportions. Another one enters "James'" mouth, and chan...
