My 3.5 year old used to cry during the SpongeBob movie when SpongeBob and Patrick are dried up and shriveled. If I remember correctly, people are crying during that time. I can't remember. It's been so long since I could tolerate that stupid show/movie lol.
My Daughter is 5. The only movies she has seen are when Disney Jr. plays one. If the movie gets the slightest bit sad, she wants me to turn the channel. I try to tell her to watch and I'm sure things will turn out fine....but then I watched a few of these movies and they don't always turn out fine so I've stopped saying it :)
