Roald Dahl in his usual funny, extreme writing style comes out clearly in this movie, but what is fine left to the imagination of young children becomes more extreme, more scary, more disturbing when seen in this movie. There were details in the imagery that my 6 year old would never have imagined himself and feel does not need to see. He is sensitive so I skipped over the very beginning and then had to skip the whole part with the aunties because of how evil the skinny aunt was. Otherwise, fun and entertaining. My 8 yo loved it.
