Shoulda been PG-13
Since most movies aimed at kids are PG now (instead of G like it was when I was a kid), I thought this movie would be appropriate for my kids since it did not have a PG-13 rating. I did do some research on it, hoever. I automatically know that I wouldn't take them to a PG-13 movie, but I will research a PG movie to see if it is appropriate, which I THOUGHT I did. I wish I had found this site before I took them! My 10-year-old and 13-year-old boys and I left the theater depressed. My 13-year-old is very, very sensitive, and I certainly would not have taken him if I thought it was going to have such an ending. My 10-year-old is much better "adjusted" than his brother, but he was pretty disappointed in how the movie ended in such a depressing manner. There were some funny parts, but I wouldn't classify this movie as a comedy--maybe comedy-drama, which would have gotten my attention somewhat. The ads were misleading in this way. The other adult themes, while not totally unexpected, were a little uncomfortable for us, too, but thankfully, they were brief. If I could do it all over again, I definitely wouldn't take my boys to see this movie.
