October at the Studio Movie Grill

This months feature for kids at the Studio Movie Grill is Spookley the Square Pumpkin.  It's every Saturday at 11:00 am and admission is $2 a pop.  I found this synopsis of the movie online:

Based on the book THE LEGEND OF SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN by Joe Troiano, which stands to become a Halloween classic, this cheerful animated event unfolds in a similarly charming way. One day in the Pumpkin Patch, something unprecedented occurs: a pumpkin is hatched who looks nothing like the other pumpkins! He's orange all right, but his shape is square, which makes the rest of his kind ostracize the poor little guy. Spookley the Square Pumpkin doesn't let it get him down, though, and he finds encouragement from other friends, such as Edgar, Allen, and Poe, three highly entertaining spiders. Then there's friendly Jack the Scarecrow, and his little bat friends, Boris and Bella, who reassure Spookley that anyone can be the Pick of the Patch come Halloween. Unfortunately, Big Tom and Little Tom don't see it that way, and they undertake to do everything they can to stand in Spookley's way. But when disaster strikes and a terrible storm sends all the pumpkins helplessly rolling--all save one, however--Jack realizes that sometimes it comes in handy to be different. 

If you see the movie, I'd love your feedback! It sounds pretty cute.
