Okay parents, don't let the title throw you off. This is not a boring movie that drones on about some stuttering king. This movie is fun and brilliant. That's why it won Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director. The one and only reason this is R is the language. But, it is not directed at anyone, nor is it meant to offend anyone. He uses foul language to stop stuttering, because he doesn't stutter when he's angry or cursing. About 12 or more f bombs and more. If your kid can handle bad language and know not to repeat it, I strongly recommend picking this up!
