Okay, there is no way on earth you can tell me this is a kid's movie. There is no way on earth that you can tell me this is a family movie. And there is no way on earth that you can tell me having Mike Myers as the lead character was a good idea.
The scene where he is singing about getting neutered while in drag is just inappropriate to be in a movie that is suppose to be geared for kids. I don't remember much of the books from when I was a kid, but don't think that sort of subtext was ever in it.
