Dreamworks Animation’s latest film, Home, surprised many critics and audiences by opening at the #1 spot in the weekend box office with a $52 million gross! The film, which many (myself included) deemed it sure to fail provided a much-needed boost to the already-faltering Dreamworks Animation.
Did you see the film? How was it? Do you think Dreamworks Animation can pull itself out from under?

I haven’t seen it.
Do you plan to?
I don’t know. My brothers might want to, so I might.:)
How old are your brothers?
7 and 9
I thought Home looked pretty lame when I saw the first trailers, and I don’t really have any interest in seeing it, but maybe I should to support Dreamworks. I might see it. It’s currently number 1 in cinemas in Sweden, before Insurgent and Cinderella.
I think Dreamworks can work themselves back, KFP3 should draw audiences.
I definitely will see it, but have no desire to.
This is an adequate babysitter to small children but that’s about it. I really didn’t care for it. I think it will likely take a big dive in week 2 and it was so expensive to make I don’t see it being the Savior Dreamworks needs but am surprised it did so well.
I think a main reason it did well is because there aren’t really much other family films out to see and many kids were on spring break last week.
I agree. Will be interesting to see if it holds up.
I didn’t see it, because I’m not a fan of the book on which it’s based. But I’m glad others seemed to like it.
It’s hard to imagine (to me at least) that the book it’s based on is popular.
I don’t plan on watching this anytime soon. It just doesn’t look like something that Dreamwork would even set out to achieve. C’mon Dreamworks, let’s avoid that route now, your better then this.
The success of this film may be what can make or break Dreamworks Animation now.
