Shark Tale

We took the kids to see Shark Tale yesterday. I think that I am getting old. I just didn't like it, I didn't think it was funny. The black stereotyping of the main character, Oscar, made me uncomfortable. And the casual way that death was portrayed made me cringe.
I grow up with Aladdin and Little Mermaid, no one dies in Aladdin and only at the end when they are in mortal danger does the prince kill the sea witch in the Little Mermaid.
Many of the kids in the theatre were laughter and I heard at least 2 of them ask if they could buy it when it came out on DVD, so I guess I'm just too old and too sensitive.
