Having two younger children, I try to take them to movies like this,
sight or review unseen, when I can. They, like most kids, have seen the
violence, heard the profanity, and fell into the lowest common
denominator of most movies being made today. That's what makes this
such a disappointment. I like to observe their reactions and their
responses and not rain on their parades. But all they talked about when
the thing was over was the guy who kept losing his teeth (remember that
from the original Broadway musical?), and the mango throwing monkey.
This is their memory of "The King and I." Both my kids have visited
Thailand and I thought perhaps this would bring up some of the spirit
of that world. Instead, we have this exploitative mess that throws out
most of the cultural issues and the dramatic impact for a supernatural
villain (where did he get these powers? The King didn't have any, other
than incredible athleticism). And, of course, is there a movie around
that doesn't have a Martial Arts component? I know that kickboxing is
big in Thailand but.... I am generally very accepting of the things
that are put out there for the kids, but this was terrible. A message
to the producers: "Please, please, please, leave Rodgers and
Hammerstein alone. I don't want to watch an interplanetary war version
