The Princess and the Frog

I would recommend waiting to rent this one if you have young children.  The frog love story was romantic and had strong underlying values, but I could have done without the ghoulish shadows and voodoo magic.  The use of blood was  particularly creepy for a kids’ flick.  When asked what their thoughts were, my two-year-old daughter answered, “it was scary” and my son replied, “the kisses on the frog were funny”.  Just as I was loosing hope in the plot, things started to turn around.  Most of the ominous characters got what they deserved, and good does triumph in the end, but there are several dark scenes not meant for young viewers.  While cultural aspects add enrichment and education to the story, some of the stereotypes portrayed go a little too far, resulting in semi-inappropriate humor at times.
