Based on the book of same name about the pains of growing up. This movie would be just perfect if it wasn't for the musical montage halfway through the story (Disney is always trying to sell us their ready made twin pop stars, which I think is garbage). The two main child actors do a great job and the special effects are beautiful, I think every parent should watch this one.

never read the book, never heard of the movie before I turned it on and watched it one Saturday morning on t.v. this is def. one of the better children's storys of the new century. It has just enough fantasy to cover the serious situations that face the young boy and girl. The trailer has absolutely nothing to do with the movie and completely misleads the individual. This movie is for children who want to enjoy some fantasy and for adults who want to rememeber what is was like to be a kid. If I had three thumbs, I'd give it three thumb up, but I don't, so I give it two thumbs up. It is a must see.

Strangely enough, this movie would've been better if they had toned down the Terabithia scenes. I know the imagining-everything-and-actually-seeing-it was a way to draw kids into the story, but all of the over-the-top...ness of their world made it somehow less genuine. I used to have something like Terabithia when I was younger, and I remember making up adventures, and so I think I would've really loved this movie if it had just shown the two kids playing and running and talking about what they see in their world without actually seeing it all. I don't know, sometimes seeing the magical world of a kid's imagination works- such as in Where the Wild Things Are, but in this movie it was just a bit silly.
With that being said, this is still a really good movie and the kid actors all did a …

We were all forced to watch this movie at school, and do a review on it, so I was expecting it to be crap (come on - the teachers picked it!) but I was totally surprised.
It is about a guy called Jess who has no friends, and is bullied at schools, until a new girl arrives: Leslie. They become friends after she beats him in a race (that he so desperately wanted to win) and they invent a magical place call Terabithia. To an outsider, it is just lots of trees. But to them, it is a magical kingdom, and with their imaginations, they can make it anything they want it to be.
So it was advertised to be something like Narnia, but it isn't really. Its just a movie showing that using your imagination can help you to cope with your problems, and that everyone needs a good friend/

"…I check my air. I don’t have as much time as I need to see everything, but that is what makes it so special.”
I’m not quite sure words can describe how I felt after viewing “Bridge to Terabithia” for the first time. For starters, I had already read the book back in fourth grade, and many of the scenes in that novel remain engraved in my mind to this day. The marketing for this adaption was poor and misleading at best. It appeared as if the people at Disney prepped this to be the next coming of “Narnia,” showcasing the various fantasy sequences throughout the many promotional trailers. Director Gabor Csupo was probably brought in to direct based on his impressive imaginative skills displayed in his co-created phenomenon “The Rugrats.” This signaled …
