Much like the book Go the F**k to Sleep this one technically isn't for children but more for the fun of the fact that it exists. Also that this is the work of a Pixar artist in his spare time is funny also. If you want to see more of the illustrations included in this book just Google "Movies R Fun" and you'll see a lot more of the images of the movies that are included.

This is THE PERFECT GIFT for friends who are movie buffs.

Really enjoyed this book. Loved the artwork and the scenes they depicted from Drive to Jaws, to my personal favorite, The Big Lebowski. Take a look at the sample pages, what you see is what you get, and I think the book is a fun, well-done conversation piece,

I love everything about this book! The illustrations, the movies chosen (I didn't recognize only two of the 40 in the book), the entire idea of the book is fantastic. And the fact that it's by a story supervisor at Pixar is a nice bonus. I'm gonna buy a few more for future gifts! Would make a great gift for a movie lover.

My favorites are: Fast Times at Ridgemont high, pulp fiction, the Godfather, Fargo, Exorcist, and pretty much all others that are violent or sex-driven that make this book what it is. Totally inappropriate for kids.

Since Hollywood loves sequels, it is only natural that Mr Cooley (even his name is awesome) release a Part 2. And then a Part 3 to complete the trilogy.

This collection of interpretative renderings of famous movie scenes is done by a Pixar animator, and the Pixar style is apparent in every sketch. The drawings are interesting and at times beautiful. I'm a big fan of the Deliverance and Fight Club drawings; a pair of menacing mountain men or an unstable-looking Tyler Durden look great in Cooley's style.

I'm not sure who would really find this book appealing besides me though. The drawings and movies are too risqué to really be meant for kids, but it's not really meant for adults either. It's placed under "juvenile humor" so I guess that's who he's aiming at. In any case I loved the collection, but I'm a big Pixar fan and a movie enthusiast in general.

This is the funniest, most clever book about classic cinema I have read in forever. It's also the book you will want to go broke buying for countless friends and family members who love movies. Terrific!

I bought this book for myself and then I bought another copy for my cousin who has a 1 year old. There are a lot of 'adult' themed references to adult movies... like Pulp Fiction (say 'what again') or Alien (chest bursting) or Clockwork Orange... films that your kid shouldn't watch until they are 10 or 13.... so obviously they wouldn't get the references.

The book itself is a little small and I guess it would work as a coffee table book but it's not large enough.

A really funny take on the movies. Written in the style of the classic Little Golden Books for children. It is not for children, however. Some of the movies for which is provides illustrations are The Godfather and Fargo. I bought it for a friend of mine who loves movies, and we had a great time reading it together.

One of the many annoying things about being a parent is the interminable wait for your offspring to grow old enough to share in the joy of watching your favorite movies. The years creep by, and eventually they'll be able to sit still long enough for 'Star Wars' and 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'...but what about your R-rated favorites? 'Alien, Clockwork Orange, Goodfellas, Jaws' and 'The Godfather'...

When, oh when, can your kids enjoy those classics?

The answer is NOW, baby!

This exquisite parody of a Little Golden Book is a perfect way to introduce the young'uns to those previously forbidden scenes of sex, violence and hillbilly rapists!

On second thought...maybe you'd better keep this one hidden away from the kiddies, or you'll have a lot of 'splainin' to do.
