According to director Steven Spielberg, he was raised on Grimm Fairytales, and they were very dark and very frightening with no redeeming social value, whatsoever. Spielberg said: "They were almost object lessons for kids, but [Roald] Dahl and [Walt] Disney both subscribed to the precepts of children's folklore and embraced the darkness, because what is a fairy-tale without a dark center? Without that dark center, where is the redemption, and how do you bring all of us out from the bowels of a nightmare into the most beautiful, enchanting dream we'd ever seen?". See more »
All of the Queen's equerries, assistants and servants address her as "ma'am" which rhymes with farm. However, it is well known that the real Queen Elizabeth II hates this and prefers being called "m'am" which rhymes with jam. As close aides to the Queen, they should really know this. Funnily enough the only person who gets it right is Sophie, who could be forgiven for getting it wrong. See more »
Firstly this is not your average Spielberg movie, it's more of a feel good family movie. The reason people hate this movie is because they are comparing it to a proper Spielberg movie. I think Spielberg was trying to do something different this time for kid viewers. My family loved this movie and if you hated this movie while you're reading this, just give it another try. Lot's of people think this is very immature because of it's fart jokes, I was counting how many fart jokes there were surprisingly there were only four in the entire movie. The director has had a few bad movies recently (Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the Krystal Skull etc.) Basically what I'm trying to say is that this is a good movie and it is too much hate.
