Picks and Pans Review: Monster House

UPDATED 07/31/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/31/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT

Voices by Steve Buscemi, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mitchel Musso, Jason Lee

Before this screening, I remarked on how crowded the theater was. "Of course," said my exasperated 6-year-old companion. "Everyone wants to see Monster House. It's a good movie." He felt the same way when the final credits rolled, having been enormously entertained by the antics of three plucky 12-year-olds who bravely discover the secret behind a haunted house. House —which would be too scary if it were live-action—showcases slippery-smooth animation and solid voice work by Gyllenhaal, Buscemi and others. (PG)
