I REALLY don't like this movie...

I really don't like ANY of the Tinkerbell movies to be honest. This first one especially, is incredibly formulaic, and dull and outright obnoxious. I didn't care at all for the characters, and the "Be happy with what you have, but don't be afraid to take a further", message is not a good one. I personally think that people should ALWAYS be happy with what they have, and not do anything to change it.

Also, the rules of magic are extremely inconsistent. The fairies are in their respective roles, such as garden fairy, light fairy, water fairy and animal fairy; but the light fairy can some how make rainbows, which is not a cause of the sun at all. Not to mention the fact that they can also CREATE sunshine and water, even though is was established earlier they couldn't.

While I like the background designs, the voice talent and the animation, it does NOTHING to save this TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE movie. The Tinkerbell franchise always paint the world as a simple, black and white cotton candy place, IS THE WORST MESSAGE IN THE WORLD. So I suggest skipping this movie.

Not bad, but not as great as you might hope

The Bad:

Our title character has almost zero points in common with her character from Peter Pan, nor does Peter Pan seem to exist in this universe (we certainly never see him in any of the Tinker Bell series films). The plot is not terribly clever (and I don't feel that just because this is a film aimed at young kids that you need to be overly formulaic) and most of the fairies – who look so interesting – get very little screen time. Tinker Bell's "talent" feels like lazy writing rather than something clever (and, although this doesn't affect the rating on this movie, the rest of the series seems to mostly ignore this idea for Tinker Bell).

The Good:

Tinker Bell seems to have had a personality make-over (probably because she is actually so unlikable in Peter Pan). Now she has more emotions besides jealousy and anger. And she can speak! There's also a "village" beyond living with the lost boys – with more fairies! This is certainly the best part – all those other fairies have the potential to be so interesting! You want to get to know them and see their 'talents'. Tinker Bell's talent, is not a stereotyped "girl's skill", which is nice since this movie is heavily marketed towards little girls. The look of the film is nice. Although there has been much better CGI since this was made, it is still bright and colorful.

The Mom view:

There is nothing objectionable about the film and while predictable for an adult, a young child might not see the end coming and enjoy Tinker Bell's discovery along with her. The moral of the story – finding what you are good at and being happy in that – is not bad, but it might also be seen as "don't try things you aren't skilled at", which isn't as good of a lesson to absorb. I'd be willing to let my preschool/toddler kids see this – including the boys – but it's not the most interesting or well done movie out there for young kids. Uunless you have a child who absolutely loves fairies (NOT one who loves Peter Pan), this is pretty skip-able.

Better than the Disney sequels at least

I guess I didn't like this as much as most people, but it's still a good movie. This is notable in marking the end of the direct to video Disney sequels everyone was complaining about to make room for the Tinker Bell movies. I think they were actually made by the same studio, but these do seem to be a step up from them. This movie actually tells us about Tinker Bell's name. I never thought of her as an actual tinkerer. In this movie, she tries her hand at various other things besides tinkering. There's some pretty creative ideas here.

I just like the idea of the tulips running around with their little legs. I actually find the ending to be quite unique. It turns out that her special talent was tinkering all the time. I mean, that's pretty original for a kid's movie. She tried to do other things, but it turns out she was best at the thing she was originally supposed to do. That is a pretty interesting message for a movie. There's some pretty amusing moments in here and while not a Disney classic, certainly not bad at all. I like when they use all the objects at the end. ***
