Aduts in monster costumes....now that's scary. Almost as bad as clowns.
The film is a two hour metaphor for a 9 year old boy working out his shit.
Jake wrote:The crazy thing about Sendak -- that I've only realized since having a kid of my own -- is that he doesn't care about parents' feelings at all. His characters are fully allowed to be naughty. You can totally tell he never had kids. He writes from the perspective of a kid, and that's why his books are awesome. (Then again, to be perfectly honest, I don't want my 2 1/2 year old looking up to any of those bratty protagonists as role models!).
Looking forward to the movie. Not bringing my kid though.
