sorry i forgot to add this last time, but by 'scary" i mean as follows:
1. In jonah's dream the usually unscary character scooter might trigger nightmares
2. Khalil is a main character, he may not do this to you, but he freaks me out
3. when jonah gets to ninevah, a character yells "get back!" he shows his eyes for one second, and they are freakers
besides that, its great! enjoy!

This used to be my favorite movie.
This movie was so fun and educational. The only part that REALLY scared me was an intense and violent storm midway through the movie. Yet for younger kids the suspense might be worrisome. For instance, a van spins out of control once the driver (unintentionally) yanks off the steering wheel. Jonah and the pirates are also in occasional peril. And Nell Minow doesn't concoct as much 1-star quality here.

Slapping people with fish is not a good role model
In one scene, the veggie people were slapping each other with fishes and that was not a good role model. Slapping other people isnot a good idea at all. My nanny did not like some parts of that movie because of that.
Wrote a review on this a while ago ("Jonah has some scary parts"), but seriously don't pay attention to that one. This movie is fine, some references to British comedy and very clever for kids and adults, especially if you understand the bible story. Bit of consumerism. Also, why on earth did younger me rate this for "ease of play"?
