According to producer and 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 »
After the grabbing Sophie, BFG hides by jumping and lying down on a truck. The tires and truck must be of superb construction because neither react to this sudden huge weight. See more »

I liked it
I do understand that people are disappointed when watching a Kids movie and expecting an exciting and challenging plot. What is wrong with you guys? Just because it says Steven Spielberg doesn't mean this is a movie that is specifically designed for your needs. I am 30+ and I like this movie a lot, watching it from a kids perspective you even understand the breakfast scene and I bet all kids would laugh at it. It is kinda sad, seeing how incapable some people are recognizing a movie for kids as such. This is a proper 8! I like the accent, the CGI is fitting, the story is for kids, so if you are not a kid, stfu. I can fully recommend it to anybody with an open mind, who is not looking for the kids version of an Captain America Civil War CGI fest.
