When do we know that it is too much? What defines the boundary of what can be watched and what cannot be. For an adult, seeing extreme things makes sense because they understand the world (somewhat). Well, some even have an appetite for it. But when it comes to a kids movie, it should be straight, plain, and simple, right? However, there are some movies that went too far, and some are inappropriate for a kids movie. Let’s have a look at some of these movies.
1/6) Bridge To Terabithia (2007)
If you’ve seen the movie, then you know about the ‘twist’. And if you have read the book, then you even know about the ‘twist’ before it happens. But the fact that it comes out of nowhere leaves kids stunned which makes it hard for them to watch something like it again. Moreover, this twist wasn’t advertised enough and people were unaware.
2/6) Tarzan (1999)
Now, this is actually disturbing. First, Clayton getting entangled in all the vines and getting hanged is too much in itself. But in the next scene, the animators even added a shadow of him hanging and swinging his lifeless body around. Many people noticed this and complained about adding such a sensitive scene in a kids movie.
3/6) All Dogs Go To Heaven (1989)
By the title one might assume two things – there would be a lot of cute scenes, and of course, one tragic sequence. While the movie was great and kid-friendly, one particular scene managed to change the entire feel of the movie, and i.e, hellish nightmare. This one scene will definitely give your kid nightmares and it is NOT easy to forget.
4/6) Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Yes, it’s a kids movie. Until you realise that the Walrus actually tricks the. baby oysters to come out of the safety of their homes, and then he eats them alive. But this isn’t the creepy part, the oysters are actually dressed like babies in BONNETS. Well, this might change the opening sentence of this paragraph.
5/6) Big Hero 6 (2014)
Big Hero 6 was a huge box office success and earned almost $658 million a the box office. Moreover, the movie has a strong rating on RT – 90%! However, Disney proved in this movie that it didn’t care whether it overloaded the viewer’s hearts a bit too much. After Hiro loses his parents, he loses his big brother too in a sudden blast. Disney really could have altered the story to make it less heavy, right?
6/6) Ratatouille (2007)
Ratatouille a cult classic, speaks to kids and adults alike. Why won’t it? The movie has just the right amount of goofiness, emotions, and drive. However, there is one particular scene that is NOT meant for kids, strictly. When Remy’s dad takes him to a pest shop to tell him that humans can’t be trusted, he literally sees almost a dozen cats dead, hanging. The music and the rainy setting makes it more horrific than it had to be.
