King Kong

Just a quick story to share...
The other weekend, I had the opportunity to see the new Harry Potter movie. While sitting through what seemed like 30 movie previews there was one for the upcoming King Kong movie. Don't forget the Harry Potter is mainly a children's movie (though it did get a PG-13 rating). While watching the King Kong trailer they had these incredible images of the giant ape running through the jungle, smashing things left and right, fighting dinosaurs, loud roaring, etc... then there happened to be a quiet moment in the trailer, and a few rows behind me I heard the voice of a little girl say, "Look mommy! a giant monkey!"
I almost laughed outloud at this, to hear the big scary "monster" of this fantastic big budget hollywood movie summed up in the eyes of a little girl.
