“To my huge surprise, Shorts resulted to be an excellent family film which is likable and hugely entertaining, thanks to the skillful performances from the young cast and Rodriguez's irreverent screenplay.
“ This is actually a pretty enjoyable movie, for kids and older viewers.
“ Target Demographic: 6-10 (possibly slow 11-year-olds) .
“ This is by far the worst movie I have ever seen!
“ Just like smosh on you tube this really sucks kids fell asleep in the movies and spy kids 4 was better than this reason 1 there throwing rocks that wont teach kids reason 2 no comedy reason 3 cheesy animation id rather watch spy kids 4 never buy this for your kids it a rubbish movie even Thomas and the magic railroad was better than this and that got 2.8 out of 10 on here.
“For ages 5-10, I'd give it a 9For ages 11-14, I'd give it a 7 or 8For ages 15-20, I'd give it a 6 or 7For ages 21+, I'd give it a 4 or 5But I, 16, found it very enjoyable, and give it a 6.5
“ This is a great movie, I was pleasantly surprised forget whomever wrote 6-10, my 4-year old was on the edge of his seat.
“ It was very imaginative and quirky, unlike the formulaic Disney movies.
“ Definitely not for everyone, but very enjoyable.
“ Very Engaging .
“ The wishes were plausible for children and the FX were enjoyable.
“ The manner in which it is told is so intriguing (it skips around in time).
“ Told in a very disjointed style, Shorts tells the tale of a group of children and adults living in the secluded Black Falls community where the popular Black Box all-in-one gadget is created.
“ And me, 10 times his age enjoyed it just as much.
“ I thought the movie was weird, artsy, and surreal, but in a good and entertaining way; you know, like the imagination of Calvin from "Calvin and Hobbes.
“ Meanwhile, this is an enjoyable kids movie to see just once .
“ SHORTS is far from entertaining.
“ But overall not a very good movie, but maybe entertaining for the very young.
“ The wishing gets very repetitive and random.
“ This movie was really entertaining.
“ Shorts is the kind of kids movie that for moments was as annoying to me as it was f****** hilarious for its target audience however for most moments was as enjoyable for me as it was f****** hilarious for all the kids in the theater.
“ It was entertaining, kind of funny, and overall a pretty good movie for children.
“ Because this is a short film, its under 90 minutes, Rodriguez also relies a bit too much on cliché short hand with a hero who thinks he has no friends when he does, and bad guys who really aren't.
“ This movie was more entertaining to me than all the other big budget movies I have seen all year.
“ Ultimately predictable and reeking of half-assed effort, the whole procedure gets exhausting after a few rounds of cutesy moxie, though at least Rodriguez wisely sticks to the context of his movie's title and keeps his film reasonably concise.
