Your Turn: Where The Wild Things Are, 7 Word Reviews


If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times: you’re not on the internet to read. Here at FSR, we celebrate the economy of language. Where The Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak’s 338-word masterpiece, is now a Spike Jonze movie. And it can be summed up… in seven words.

If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll recall that Max has a chance to ask two seemingly wise owls a question, but he should be able to do it in seven words. How do I make everyone O.K.? While the owls have their own answer to this ultimate relational query, our official seven words look like this: booze, gettin’ freaky, and lots of movies.

Here’s where you come in: leave us a comment with your seven word review of Where The Wild Things Are. Can’t come up with anything? We assume you have some friends. Get them in on the action. Ask them to submit theirs first. Then outdo them.

Or try commenting, then tweeting or Facebooking your seven words. Include this link (it goes right back here, we’ve just shortened it for your twitterfeed):, then beg for replies. The more the merrier, but follow the rules. Seven words. It’s harder than you think.

Here’s mine: Sweet, with dashes of dark. Lovely film.
