What movie is NOT so great for little ones...
Way to go, Hubby.
Yes, he knows---he picked it. Poor choice for a 4 year old.
Let's see....within the first 30 seconds, they zone in on the typed out word "dead." After that, you're staring at a dead man in a coffin.... Yes, we got past that.
We got to the 1st ghost.
When dead-ghost-Marley's jaw broke & his cheeks split open with half of his face flapping about---well, it was time for this crew to go.
It reminded me of this scene from "The Ring":
"Hey, Gage...this movie is almost over. You wanna go play at the mall?"
Hubby has picked 2 movies this month.
We left both of them early.
His movie picking priveleges have been revoked.
So, just a word to the wise---TRUST the PG rating. Gage has been ok with some PG movies in the past...but this one? Not so much.
Now, having said that---Hubby & I would still like to see it. The hard work put into this movie---oh my goodness. It's just so intricate & neat on the screen.
But---does anyone wonder (because I do)---would Charles Dickens be offended that his work has been made into a cartoon? I know that this is not the first cartoon version of this story, but it just made me wonder if he would like it or be offended...
Ok, that's all I've got for now!
