Angelina's evil diva may be too dark for kids

  • The Movie Man, Russ Leatherman, reviews "Maleficent" & "A Million Ways to Die in the West"

So should you take your family to see Disney's re-telling of the "Sleeping Beauty" story? The Movie Man, Russ Leatherman, says "Maleficent" is "very dark." Maybe too dark for little kids. With that caveat aside however, Leatherman says the film is beautiful and Jolie is great in the role of the evil fairy who casts that infamous sleeping spell on the fair Princess Aurora.

Leatherman is also "in" for "One Million Ways to Die in the West" from "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane. It's a raunchy "spoof movie" set in the old west that Leatherman says will appeal to fans of MacFarlane's raunchy style of humor.
