Since it has a witty script that appeals to adults as well as children, Monster House will be good enough on your 2-D television -- but why would you want to miss out on the experience that is available to you while it lasts? The best thing about the 3-D is that it isn't a gimmick, and the movie doesn't feature otherwise unnecessary pop-out shots that only exist because of the technology. Instead it is more subtle, and therefore less distracting. At times I took notice of the picture's visual depth and at one time I almost thought there was actual smoke sifting through the auditorium, but otherwise, I was immersed enough in the story that the 3-D stuff wasn't blatantly apparent. In a good way. Like in the way that really good acting, directing, writing, scoring and editing shouldn't be too obvious.
Okay, I'll stop gushing. Go see it.
