Have you even seen the movie?
Would you get off my back? Why are you even asking me about all this? Is your backbone this tiny, you actually need to go online and read about a movie before you go see it? What is this, a NASA launch? Are you researching a second mortgage on your home? It's a two hour time investment to see a kid's film with its plot in the f*****g title. Go or don't. Go drink a bag of paint for all I care.
It's just that I heard it was some kind of Christian allegory. Is Jesus in it or something?
No, Jesus isn't in The Chronicles of Narnia. Narnia is a fairy tale about four children who befriend a kindly lion and have exciting adventures. Then the kindly lion is revealed to be the King of Kings and the son of an omnipotent deity; is betrayed his disciples and someone called Jadis; and is publicly whipped and tortured in the street before resurrecting himself several days later.
Bottom line: Anyone looking for similarities between Narnia and Christianity is clearly unable to enjoy the simple pleasures of a lion being tortured without spoiling all the fun by reading something into it.
The lion is publicly tortured? That sounds pretty gruesome. Should I take my kids to see it?
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe is a perfectly fine film to take your children to. Don't let the hard NC-17 rating or rumors of full frontal male nudity scare you off. In addition to witches and lions, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe also boasts wardrobes, which experts agree help promote learning and... you know, bone density in children.
