Here’s a new trailer for PADDINGTON, due on screens this Christmas.
I'm not really a prude about such matters, and generally believe kids are quite a bit smarter than we tend to give them credit for. I also think the bear, historically and as a character, is kinda cute and all that. This said...this trailer really hit me the wrong way.
While I appreciate the ear wax gag on an admittedly sophomoric level, The Powers That Be had better watch out. Some kid’s gonna jam toothbrushes through his/her ears and scrape his/her brains out cuz they saw this damn bear doing it, and then there’ll be hell to pay. Not to mention ODing on mouthwash, or drowning in a toilet.
