Excessive, but I, like Mr. Jingles, can't resist the Christmas-season cheese.

Well acted by an ensemble that leans toward equality for all, Mile carries its long running time extremely well.
As Darabont directs it, it tells a story with beginning, middle, end, vivid characters, humor, outrage and emotional release. Dickensian.

Iffy for 16+
Thoughtful, intelligent movie for older teens.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has a horrifyingly graphic execution scene. Talk to teens who see the movie about Coffey's wish to be put out of his misery, which could be seen by sensitive kids as an argument in favor of suicide.
Violence: Intense scenes, including very explicit execution.
Sex: Some references.
Language: Some strong language, use of racial epithets.
Consumerism: Not an issue
Drinking, drugs and smoking: Mild.
