/ (6) Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Popularity
- (12) Disney's The Princess and the Frog: 2009, Animation, "Very bad, dark movie! Watch after 13 years old!"
Disney's "Ariel, The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast" should not be seen with ages 0 and up, in my opinion only from 6. Because of blood and thunder, better only starting from 8 ages. On web is also recommended 6 ages for both films by parents.
And movies with hard violence, blood and thunder like "Shrek" should not be seen with 6, preferably with 8, better with 10 ages!
You can say, that films for children with hard violence, blood and thunder, need to be added at least 5, 6 ages! But the responsible person don't do this, because it is against economic interests!
Now I've watched with my child "SpongeBob SquarePants" and as plankton, the skin was fallen off in shock and you was able to see his whole meat, I come to the conclusion that even Spongebob should be viewed only from (6)8 ages!
