James and the Giant Peach, Shrek, Madagascar, and Marley and Me.
What do these all have in common? A PG rating. Except Marley and Me has a naked jennifer aniston, several implied sex scenes, and swearing.
I am not a prude, and I loved loved loved the book. But, I thought PG meant PG, as far as movies go. I never would have rated this PG. It's really really misleading. It simply isn't a PG movie. I brought my daughter to it, and I had to walk out. I have never even come close to walking out of a movie before, but I simply couldn't let my daughter watch that type of movie yet. It was introducing concepts I'd only begun to talk about with her. I should have checked the net for reviews, but I've never had a bad experience. Id always read the rating, and been able to trust that the rating matched the content.
It makes me angry that they wrecked the book I love so much. Go buy the book, and see a different movie. John Grogan is still a genius; fire the producer and up the rating to PG13.
