no Kung Fu Panda thread?

Went and saw it last night with the family. I laughed.

Something I noticed, it seems that the last few animated 'kids' movies I've seen have had a lot of characters falling down, running into things, falling off stuff, hitting each other, and other cheap gags like that to get laughs. I don't have a problem with it being 'violent' (getting hurt kinda stuff), but it seems as though the animated movie makers come to rely on that a little too much these days.

The FedEx driver on my route said he took his kids to see it this weekend and it was great. He said everyone gave it a standing ovation. I doubt it was that good.

I don't have kids so I can't fully understand your point, but who doesn't love animated violence? Tom & Jerry and Wylie Coyote & Roadrunner cartoons kinda set the stage for all of today's movies. Any story has to have some sort of clumsy character/s & Conflict - that equals violence in one way shape or form. It's a cartoon for kids and as sad as it is to say, cheap gag or not - that sort of violence sells . . . even the Little Mermaid has what your talking about (and an annoying soundtrack that's not work appropriate LOL)

my regards

I know what you mean, it seems they are aiming towards adult like humor more too. Ya, its funny but good the kids don't understand what they mean!

Took my kids to see it last Friday. They loved it, I loved it and we laughed the whole time.

Just look at Shrek, some of the the innuendo's they use that are definitely directed towards adults knowledge but yet in kids movies.
They are doing so to try and get more adults to watch their movies
