    The kids movie?I enjoyed it's social commentary on mental health and the stigma of mental illness as well as the way it explained how childhood memories influence how we adjust mentally as adults.

    Why would that be "sad"?

    It was given a 8.5 on IMDB. Not that many movies get given that high of a score on IMDB.

    So it must be really good.

    Of course it's not sad. If anything, your comment on how it's social commentary justifies how it's an insightful film for all ages

    But I'm an adult should I be finding a movie aimed at children interesting? What does that say about me?

    Yeah nobody cares tbh, I know a mum of three kids that still enjoys playing in the park and swings on the see saw and slides done the slides.

    As long as you're enjoying yourself, you really shouldn't be giving a monkeys what others think of you.

    Btw I am a big man myself and I still love reminiscing with animation movies, they are nostalgic and brings back child hood memories.

    Never let age be an excuse from doing what you enjoy and relish in life.

    Age is just a number, don't worry about society, just be concerned about your happiness and what makes you smile.

    If you end up worrying too much about what other think of you, you'll just tie yourself down and be depress.
    I'm usually like that too but felt weird after watching this one. I mean I watched Frozen too but I kept it on the DL because I didn't want people to judge me. lol

    It's a guilty pleasure


    TBH if I heard a 20-something male talking about disney/pixar animated movies directed at kids I'd be side eyeing them and judging them but maybe that's just my insecurity.

    Yeah I can relate, I remember this 27 year old was telling me how he enjoyed watching Madagascar, when i told him it was a kids movie, he looked at me and just sighed and rolled his eyes in despair. But since watching animations like Finding Nemo and Toy Story I take back my comment.

    I guess we all judge to some extent, even if we are not fully conscious that we are doing it.

    Just means you like a good animated movie (I don't really want to say 'fun' given the more serious underlying themes, but I guess it's how it's delivered). No age limit on these things at all, and there's no shame in going to see them.
    I mean if you want to be really picky about it, technically it's a family movie so it's appealing to all ages - only difference is how your age affects your experience of it

    Not really, animated kid films are also one of my guilty pleasures as long as they're good. I recently watched Hotel Transylvania.

    I loved it. But it is important to remember that it is a film intended to entertain and not as an accurate portrayal of any mental illness or the biological causes of it.

    I thought everyone got by now that Pixar's films are intended to resonate with all ages. Nearly every time another one of their films comes out the reviewers go on and on about how "animation isn't just for kids anymore" lol. I'm 18 and thought it was pretty intelligent and engaging if not quite up to the level of some past Pixar films.
