This is a japanese movie and before I brought it I rented it from the libery and it had japanese sub title. This one does not have japanese subtitle.

Little kids "falling in love" and being totally obsessed?? No thanks!! Children should not be sexualized like this, like Disney flicks, abandoned by their parents and forced to figure things out on their own...this movie is stupid and weird.

miyazaki is brilliant, of course, but the blue ray "skipped" - on first use - making for a disappointed group of 5 year olds

I purchased the DVD video Ponyo and when I tried to play it I found that it is not "region compatible." Apparently when a DVD is purchased from another country (I purchased it through Amazon) there are compatibility issues and will not play on USA players. I didn't realize that it was being shipped from England.

This is the first film in quite a few years that I have so thoroughly disliked. Many admirers claim "it's hand-drawn, not the cold, heartless work of computers!" or "the symbolism is so important and you obviously don't get it," or "Miyazaki's a master!" or "you need to attend to what's not being said as much as what IS being said." I still say any film that has a father-figure dressed like a bad drag combo of Ann-Margaret and Cher, any film that has a mother ignore warnings and outrace a flood in her crappy car and then LEAVE her very young child alone (with a strange fish!) in said flood in order to check on a bunch of old folks who are in an institution miles away with other guardians, any film that allows 5-year-olds to determine their destinies in love, and any film that so clearly wimps out at its climax is hooey. Enjoy the magic! Revel in childhood innocence! Accept the unacceptable! Yep, heard and read it all before. Ponyo's annoying and endless repetition of "Sosuke" and "ham" is grating (not cute), and the ecological message is heavy-handed. Miyazaki is more interested in emotions than conflict; yet, without conflict, emotional impact is lost. Again, I'm supposed to believe that this boy and fish are drawn (pun intended) together? Are fated soul-mates? Kids, get back to me in 20 years and let's see how you're doing. Yes, I hear the collective intake of great indignation, but for me, this was an exercise in tedium and sappiness.

Ponyo is very weird and sorta creepy.Because1)Ponyo father looked like a woman , but still a man at the same time( me and my brother watched this movie together and we was debating if he was a man or woman).2)The fate of the whole world depends on a five year old boy loving a fish girl,are you kidding me?3)Five year olds loving each other, personally i think its kinda wrong , because are they too young to know what love is or not.4)The boy's mom is okay with this?So Ponyo was plain weird.

Poorly written and not altogether easy to follow. Would not recommend this to anyone who has enjoyed others before.

Ponyo is not a great and perfect film by any means. I love Miyazaki's works but this one is not quite on target. But I still will buy it because it does have charming Miyazaki touches, and the characters are drawn from faces we love from Totoro and all of Miyazaki's films. What I find especially objectionable is Disney's marketing ploy: the Ponyo plush looks cute, but why is it only available with the DVD, and not the blu-ray? I contacted Disney and got the sorry but plush only with the DVD...which tells me nothing new. I am willing to buy into the combo pack where you get both the DVD and Blu-ray together,but how much more sweeter would it be to have that Ponyo plush included?

I cant figure this out. It seems to me that Disney is selling people special fetures in hi def and then the movie on a regular dvd. Is this correct?? If so, it seems underhanded.
