A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
The overarching message is that friendship is built by helping each other and should always come first, no matter what.
Positive Role Models
Long Tail is a positive role model as he learns what it means to be a true friend and helps the villagers of Carrot Town.
Violence & Scariness
There's a lot of silly slapstick violence with things falling and hitting people on the head. One character is the stereotypical jock and threatens to beat up other characters if they try to be romantic with Princess Bunny. There also are a couple of scary scenes wherein main characters are in peril during a fire and a flood.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Agent F.O.X. is an animated animal adventure from China that has been overdubbed in English. The adventure tale about a secret agent is geared toward young kids and is fairly clean, though it does have a few scenes showing characters in peril that may be a bit scary for very young children. There's also a bit of silly slapstick-y violence, with a lot of characters getting hit on the head with falling objects.

Is It Any Good?
Although the concept of Agent F.O.X. is cute and has some fun details, something seems to get lost in translation. There are plot points and lines of dialogue that don't make sense, which will probably be confusing to both kids and adults. The animation is very jerky and choppy, which gets a bit tiring after a while. And the voice acting sounds a bit overdone and awkward, which is probably mostly due to being translated from the original Chinese to English.
Kids will probably enjoy the different inventions created by Long Tail and left over from the Great Inventor, but they may find the plot somewhat boring and confusing. The insistence on learning the town rules throughout the movie is especially bland and baffling, even though it's eventually explained. Parents will probably appreciate the fairly clean content, though some may not appreciate the amount of times characters get hit in the head with stuff.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
