Peter Rabbit (2018) - REVIEW
This should give parents some pause. Although I am not familiar with all of the Beatrix Potter tales, from those I do remember there is a simple story in which the animal characters make poor choices which result in an almost immediate consequence or a narrow escape which teaches a lesson. In the classic stories, Squirrel Nutkin has most of his tail bitten off when he has taunted the owl one too many times. Jemimah Puddleduck loses all of her eggs and is almost eaten herself when she trusts the fox. Peter Rabbit narrowly escapes death at the hands of Mr.
Let's start out this parents review of Peter Rabbit by addressing the questions most readers want to know:. I admit, I've been wishy-washy on a few of these reviews before. Both my parent's review of Jumanji and my parent's review of Dr. Strange were definitely on the fence about if they were ok for kids to see. But I promise-I can be decisive in these parent's reviews.
Dapper in his Edwardian attire of blue jacket and brown slippers, Peter risked life and limb by purloining the produce from Mr. Tiggy-Winkle the washerwoman hedgehog to Mr. Jeremy Fisher the gentlemanly frog. After all, it is a fairly short book. In this padded version, the now-orphaned Peter recruits his triplet sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail spoken by Margot Robbie , Elizabeth Debicki and Daisy Ridley —not that you can tell along with their chubby cousin Benjamin Colin Moody , to assist in staging a major heist. The elderly McGregor Sam Neill , barely recognizable behind a bushy gray beard and extra body padding is initially oblivious—until he turns off his loud lawn mower. But just when it looks as if he has trapped his prey, the gardener suddenly drops dead.

Everything Wrong With Peter Rabbit In 14 Minutes Or Less
Potter wrote gentle morality fables about anthropomorphic animals, which she illustrated herself. Now her most famous character, the mischievous Peter Rabbit, has been transformed into a fast-talking juvenile delinquent, a hipster dude rather too fond of rude jokes and possessing a nasty murderous streak. Peter voice of James Corden is now the leader of his family, which includes his younger sisters, triplets Flopsy voice of Margot Robbie , Mopsy voice of Elizabeth Debicki , and Cottontail voice of Daisy Ridley. Deep in the verdant English countryside, he wandered into a fenced-in garden and was caught by the owner, Mr. McGregor, who turned him into a pie supper. Let that be a lesson to you, Mother warns her brood. But Peter disobeys, and barely escapes with his life.
