All I want is a decent film

I already know what I want for next Christmas – something other than children’s cartoon movies on TV during the holidays.

Shrek, Madagascar, Monsters Inc and the rest ... I’ve had my fill! There are plenty of action films for the whole family to enjoy that don’t involve animated animals and predictable, schmaltzy storylines that deliver ‘important life lessons’.

And don’t say that there are jokes for adults in these infantile wastes of time. Having a cartoon creature recite a line from the Godfather or Taxi Driver is not humour.

Any adult who would laugh at this drivel shouldn’t be allowed to have children in the first place.
