Prince of Egypt, The - Miriam Is a Wh*re
In a film that pretends to be so accurate, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Miriam and Zipporah with their long locks flowing- for the Jews, a woman walking around without a covering for her head meant that she was a prostitute or at least had very, very low morals!

Yes. Everyone submitting slip-ups about this movie needs to realize it is a cartoon/musical adaptation of a well-known bible story. Not the Bible. Its equivalent to complaining about pretty much any Disney movie adapted from a fairy tale. They change some things to make it more mainstream. Get over it.

Like Cat said, this is supposed to be a movie about a very well-known Bible story for kids. The story isn't about Jewish laws or traditions its about Moses crossing the Red Sea and the ten plagues and the ten commandments. It's supposed to be a movie for kids, do you think the kids really care or think about what hair style the cartoons have, I mean, come on!

Accurate?? Ummm, I'm pretty sure that most Hebrews and Egypts didn't go around expressing their thoughts in the form of singing, or even speaking English. I don't recall anyone expressing that they were trying to be 100% precise, and as a cartoon feature they were probably less obliged.

If you read the disclaimer before the movie starts, it says that they take creative license with the content of the movie and tell you where in the bible to find the actual story.

Zipporah wasn't Jewish, she was a Midianite.
