After years of falsely assuming that “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” was a boring, hard-to-enjoy movie, I was pleasantly surprised when I actually sat down and watched it! The acting was a little bit hokey in a part or two, but overall, the storyline was clever, captivating and even suspenseful! Add to the mix the beautiful underwater footage, and one can see why it has been dubbed a classic.
A few scenes showed men smoking cigars and drinking wine, but they were not highlighted by any means. A couple of kisses were in the story but they were not in bad taste. Overall, “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” was a great watch and earns the Dove Family-Approved Seal.
