Terrible

The reviews were so far from accurate it’s shocking. This dealt with grown up topics (Poorly) like divorce and strong hints to intimacy, like when he walks in on the princess getting out of the shower, the birds wrap her in a towel and then they stumble out of the bathroom and she falls on top of him suggestively. The fiancé comes in and “catches” them and asks if he would like some grown up girl time.... We can assume the princess is the heroine/someone to look up to in the story and as such the message we take away is that women are sweet and innocent to the point of naive, their role is to sing a happy tune while cleaning up everyone else’s messes. Definitely not messages I want my 8 and 6 year olds taking away.

something the whole family can enjoy

watched it with the kids and grandparents, everyone loved it. Amy Adams is so great. we were afraid that the 4 year old might be bored but while many jokes went over her head, there was enough "Princess-ness" to keep her entertained and it wasn't too young for anyone in the room. good music. many moments where everyone I'm the room broke out in laughter. reminds me of Shrek in the sense that there's something for everyone. it's possible that the very end could be scary if other classic Disney villans are scary to little ones. it wasn't scary for us. One of the characters is a divorce lawyer but I don't think the kids realized what that was.
