Extremely good (anime) movie, I highly recommend it. Apparently, "Summer Wars" is also good, but I've only seen one of Mamoru Hosoda's stuff so far. The use of CGI to represent the time-leap was jarring, as it always is... but an extremely good use of the "jarring" feel when CGI and and hand drawn anime are matched up. People also say good things about Summer War's use of CGI to represent Oz (I mean... the Digi-world... :-p)
Summer Wars is pretty good, but The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is much better. If you ever saw the Digimon Movie back in the day (specifically, the middle arc, which was known as Digimon: Our War Game in Japan), then you've seen Summer Wars. Mamoru Hosoda made both of them, Summer Wars is literally just a longer and higher budget remake of Our War Game. And without the amazing gag dub and soundtrack. (It also has a minor reference and five second cameo of my university, so I've seen it a couple times.)
Mamoru Hosoda's latest film is Wolf Children Ame and Yuki, which I also highly recommend. It's up there with The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.
