Not really a kids movie, but decent enough otherwise.
This movie is ok. It follows the style of other Wes Anderson movies, though his style seems out of place in this kind of movie. It's post-modern, quirky, and the humour is mostly at an adult level. Very unlike the Roald Dahl book. Additionally, the movie has a lot of pretend / fake swearing in which, while nowhere near as bad as proper swearing, still seems unsuitable for a kids' movie. Eg. "Stop 'cussing' around, or else we'll be in deep cussing trouble." "Do you want me to cuss you up? You stupid cuss!" etc. etc.
