A fair movie targeted more to children than adults

"Tim Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas" is a fair family film that has more weak points than strong points.
First, the music is not the best, They all sound pretty much the same, and none really stand out. The songs do sound like something zombies and monsters would sing however. I also think that there were just too many songs throughout the entire film.
The story is somewhat memorable, but pretty predictable. Personally, I think that children would like the story more than adults.
The performances are pretty good as well. However, the main characters don't have equal time on-screen. And many of the supporting characters could have been seen more, especially any that had a part in a subplot.
The animation is the biggest strength this film has. The characters are memorable, mostly because of their look.
If your an adult, you may want to skip this one -- unless your a Tim Burton fan of course. This one is mainly for kids.
