Sexual remarks, homosexuality, suggestions that kids are watching porn on TV...
My 9, 12 and 13 year old kids were disappointed with several sexual and homosexual remarks in this movie. I was pretty much embarrassed too as many other parents with young kids at the cinema. General citizens of the town were shown so dumb, my kids said: Dad, we do not want to live in America like one shown here...

This movie diffently, was much more than any movie experience that I have ever attend in my 60 odd yers of attending the theaters. But, it gave a different me a much brighter insight of future movies to come and enjoy with the younger generation of the years ahead.

This film should have been rated PG-13 for violence, horror, and language. It's really too much for young children. Within the first ten minutes, a highly-sexualized teenage girl character calls another character a "Jack-Ass". You could hear the gasps in the theater from other parents like me, who'd brought kids aged 6-8 to see this. As the film developed, this teenage girl is practically throwing herself at the teenage boy character - who spends most of the film without a shirt on, showing off his six-pack abs. (Warning: Spoilers to come) The premise of the film is that a bunch of 18th century people (now zombies) sentenced an 11-year old girl to death, and killed her - causing her to be an evil "witch". The last third of the film is VERY scary to small children, as the witch attempts to destroy everyone. At the end of the film, the teenage boy is revealed to be gay with a boyfriend. Unnecessary and difficult to explain to a child, not to say inappropriate in a child's film.

ParaNorman was much better than I expected. I liked the focus of overcoming fear, fear of the other, fear of the different. My 12 yr old and her friend were pretty scared. The younger children in the theater seemed to find it a bit overwhelming. My 14 yr old enjoyed it.

not too many kid friendly movies out there -- the animation quality in this movie is unbelievable; that coupled with a good story line make for a great experience. The audience applauded at the end.
