We watched the version of this movie distributed by Feature Films for Families. It later came to our attention that this was an edited version. All other distributors and sellers carry the uncut version. The edited parts included various slang phrases and mild crudeness. While we generally discourage watching “edited” movies, as the morals of the producer can never be completely removed, in this case the Feature Films for Families version helps eliminate detraction and leaves a better spirit.
