I was very surprised to hear a few bible words slip out in a Don Bluth movie. This is not a rated G movie. There's scenes with blood. I don't know what the movie rating people were thinking. It is one the first movies to have swearing compared to The Last Unicorn. The few swear words ruined the experience.January 24th, 2012 · Details
