Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that while they may cringe at this adaptation of the classic novel, kids who aren't familiar with the classic story may enjoy the adventures and the always-likeable Jackie Chan. If nothing else, you can use the movie as a way to get your kids to check out the book (maybe read it as a family read-aloud). There is a lot of slapstick-, cartoon-, and action-style violence, including many crotch injuries, but no one is seriously hurt. Characters use mild bad language ("bloody hell"). There is some crude and vulgar humor, including bathroom jokes, drunkenness played for comedy, a weird cross-dressing joke, and a comic situation involving a man with many wives. A strength of the movie is the portrayal of women and minorities who fight stereotypes and prejudice; however, some people may find some of the portrayals in the movie itself offensively stereotypical.
