Movies in general always require a suspension of disbelief, but it’s especially true for a kids movie. It isn’t necessarily for the more fantastical stuff like dragons and spaceships and whatnot, but just for the fact that the entire movie has been scrubbed clean of foul language and/or blood and/or excessive violence. For far too many kids movies, doing so probably doesn’t net you anything you might consider of entertainment value. The kids might fall for the sight gags and bathroom humor, but us adults will just be bored to tears. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, like all of its previous iterations and undoubtedly its future iterations as well, requires a generous amount of your suspension of disbelief.
