Put away the weapons!

I find it disappointing that so many children’s movies involve so much explicit violence with high powered weapons, and this movie is no exception . Mass shootings with high powered weaponry is one of the glaring blights of America and it is galling to see an otherwise entertaining film with so much gun violence. I am the grandparent of a 6 year old - not the parent

Great messages!

With a parent watching alongside, I think this movie is appropriate for 3+. There are some great messages, and it’s easy to talk your kid through the few intense parts. The movie was really great, I will watch it again for sure.
