I read that the director said, and I agree, that's it more of an adult movie that SOME kids will like. They had to really flesh it out, as the book is so short. To me, it delves too much into relationships & feelings to be very interesting to LITTLE kids (thus the PG rating). On the way home from the movie, dh and our girls and I talked about how each monster seemed to kind of represent a behavior of Max's----Carol was often irrationally angry & destructive; Judith was mouthy; Alexander felt like he wasn't listened to, etc. The girls picked up on that quite nicely, but they are 10 & 12! I think it's absolutely not for little kids, and I've told my friends who have kids that age...

I did think that the "wild things" resembled personalites of Max and his family.
