Where the Wild Things AreDespite director Spoke Jonze's insistence that 'Where the Wild Things Are' is not a children's film, many families still trooped to theaters expecting something a lot more kid-friendly than the dark, existential art film they got.

It's not the first film that seemed far more kid-oriented than it really was. Sometimes it's the fault of misleading ads or a ratings system which slaps the same "R" on a violent, disturbing film as it does on one merely peppered with F-bombs, but most parents (and those looking for a little escapism) know that just because a movie is about children, doesn't mean it's made for children. Here are 10 films that may look all warm and fuzzy and family-friendly ... but really aren't.
