>>Rather, I think the larger issue distinguishing adult from children's material is one of complexity and sensibility.Exactly.
Consder the original _Incredible Journey_ with the recent re-make. The original was three animals crossing America to find their owners and meeting bears, porcupines etc with narration and I loved and still love the film.
The remakle is noted by the cat saying "cats rule, dogs drool" and isn't worth the price of a cheap theater ticket.
They dumbed it down for kids to the point that only kids, very young and stupid kids, would enjoy the film.
