While it helped to break down the principles a bit by providing examples based on scenes of films, it seemed that there were many occasions in which I was unsure of whether or not this actjng had really watched the film – or understood that it’s aimed at children.

For instance, he belittled things he called ‘cheap gags’ in some of the movies such as Toy Story 2, in which Al belches in Woody’s face, saying it was unnecessary. He also remarked that Kronk, in the Emperor’s New Groove, didn’t have to be such a simpleton throughout the entire movie, since it had already been established early on, but I believe that it was used not only to maintain the character’s personality, but also because Kronk behaved in a way that would make kids laugh.
I tried not to take things personally when he complained about little things like these with some of my favorite movies growing up, instead finding myself benefitting by coming up hook a good argument as to why I disagreed with some of de points he made, and learned a lot that way.
So even though this book wasn’t in and of itself as helpful as I would have liked, I still made the most of it.
