    I thought the good dinosaur was a really odd and not a good film at all. My 2 year old was bored. My 4 year old was fine. No nightmares at all, but he's a very tough kid when it comes to separating fiction from fact (as in he understands nuances and can handle some pretty strong stuff). He watched Coroline which scared the life out of DD1 and loved it.

    I thought the short was fine. I liked the message. My son liked it the other kids didn't think much of it.

    I wouldn't say anything. For every kid upset by a movie another 3 enjoy it. It's hard and worth doing a lot of homework before taking kids.

    I don't really think you can/should complain, I'm fairly certain Disney Pixar movies always have a short before them and that they are the same rating as the film. I agree with Sonja that it is all about an individual child's perception, what one child finds scary or sad another doesn't, it doesn't mean the film was inappropriate, ya know.

    The cinemas don't come up with the ratings, Australian Classification does that.

    There's probably no point in complaining to the cinema. I'm sure Australian Classification have a procedure to follow if ratings are being questioned.

    Good luck, I hope your little one is ok x

    Seriously though, all of my kids struggle with Disney/Pixar movies - hits them in the feels too much.
    Oh the fox and the hound *sigh* still brings a tear to my eye.

    I wouldn't complain, it's so difficult to decide which movie is appropriate because each child is so different. This is the sort of movie I would never have taken my DD to see when she was 4, DS (who is now 4) on the other hand no problems.

    I don't think I've ever finished the fox and the hound because I always got upset! Don't get me started on Bambi! And then the Lion King when Scar kills his father! I was 12 when that movie came out and still traumatized! Disney doesn't mess around.

    My kids saw the good dinosaur,
    My 5 yo loved it, my 2 yo loved it also,
    Unless you know the short add was pg rated you really can't complain, it doesn't sound overly scary though for a 4 yo,
    The cinema don't create the shorts. You could really only complain to the manufacturer

    I took my kids to see it and agree, the short was pretty scary. But The Good Dinosaur is rated PG

    On a related note, I look up films on Raising Children's website and go from there. It actually recommends that children younger than 5 don't see this movie. Granted, they don't mention the short film but interestingly their review says the movie goes for 101 minutes though the actual film goes for 93 minutes so I assume they include the short in their running time and recommendations (though they give no specific feedback about the short). They also note that the film is rated PG. Anyway, just something that might come in handy for other parents http://m.raisingchildren.net.au/movi...ml?context=485

    Also, IMDb is good for looking up movies. Gives every detail in the parents' section about the movie. I always look up this site before taking the kids and have regret it in the past if I haven't read it. My kids (7yo daughter especially) gets easily scared in movies but was fine after this. I read some angry parent reviews on Facebook and disagreed. I loved it.

    Here is what the parents' guide says:

    Here is a snippet of the parents' guide
