Oh yeah, I saw The Secret World of Arrietty when it came out in February. Overall I enjoyed it, but it's definitely a flawed film. The artistry, animation, and music are amazing, but the English dub and the story weren't that great.
First, this is worst localization of a Ghibli production that Disney has done. They changed the name from The Borrower Arrietty to The Secret World of Arrietty, which doesn't make much sense; they changed all the names of the characters; and some of the performances, especially Hara/Haru, weren't well acted — Bridgit Mendler as Arrietty was really good though. Also, the Bridgit Mendler song at the end was way out of place.
I hear the UK English dub has its own problems, so that's probably not any better, haha. Anyway, it's worth watching, if anyone's the least bit interested in it.
You liked her part? I felt both her, and whatsisface's sho/shaun were very phoned in. They felt very "I'm only doing this because disney is making me, because my stupid parents signed x year contracts to get me on tv". Though, I actually thought that Carol Burnette made that dub almost worthwhile with her performance.
