    I appreciated your thoughts on PETER RABBIT and expressed some of the same concerns in my personal review about the violence. I also saw similarities with HOME ALONE and compared it to a live action version of a Wile E Coyote vs Road Runner cartoon. However, I think there’s a big difference between seeing something like this animated as opposed to real life actors participating. I found the repetitious violence rather disturbing, and I feel the audience I was with felt the same way, as their laughter subsided after each occurrence. I think we have to face the fact that we are living in a different time now, and what was once mindless fun is now a bit uncomfortable. I think this is one of the drawbacks of trying to re-create animated mischief into actuality. Imagine watching a Bugs Bunny vs Elmer Fudd battle re-imagined with human actors. It’s just not going to work. The joy of animation is watching the impossible happen in non-human terms. Trying to make that happen in “real life” eviscerates the fun. It becomes not only cloying but uncomfortable.
