How I saw it: in the theater, February 2009
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great)
Objective Rating: 10/10 c. 3.7/4 (Great)

We saw it in 3D, which was pretty but not worth the inflated ticket prices (not to mention the more obvious down-sides to seeing a "children's movie" in the theater). Fun movie, though. Pixar quality.
