Scary, violent, inappropriate

I agree with many of the other reviews here, and am disappointed that I couldn't rely on the Common Sense overview - which I have come to trust! Why no mention of the big scary purple monster? A full screen of fangs and roaring is definitely too much for younger or sensitive viewers - I would have expected a heads up from this site.
