This review of the movie contains the following information:
Kath and Kimderella is a movie featuring the well loved Australian TV characters, Kath and Kim. When Kath (Jane Turner) wins a holiday for two to Italy in a local competition, she hopes that husband Kel (Glenn Robbins) will go with her for a trip of a lifetime. Kel, however, has a fear of flying which prevents him from going and Kath reluctantly invites her daughter Kim (Gina Riley) to join her. Sharon (Magda Szubanski), Kim’s second best friend, agrees to come to help with the bags!
When the three women arrive in Papilloma, their holiday destination, they find it is not quite what they had imagined, with poverty rife and their accommodation abandoned. The trio stumble upon new accommodation in the King of Papilloma’s castle where they are welcomed with a royal reception. The bankrupt King sees Kim as the answer to his financial woes when he mistakes her for a wealthy Australian with royal blood.
Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.
None of concern
Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
