Old-Fashioned Fun and a great introduction to classic movies
One of the best classic movies to introduce kids to old movies. Equally enjoyable for boys and girls. Teaches kids about tyranny, justice, fair play, sharing with others when you have more and they have less. There is some violence (e.g., fighting with bows and arrows, swords, an attempted hanging) and a little blood, so it's important to watch these scenes with your kids and explain how real violence hurts. But mostly, it's good clean old-fashioned fun, exhilarating and charming. Though the bad prince is a bit effeminate, I wouldn't necessarily characterize this as outright homophobia, as the reviewer on this site does. Also pair this movie with Disney's animated ROBIN HOOD and invite the kids to compare.
