Rodrick Heffley Is Now An Arctic Dog Because Of This

age 7+

My child is crying

I have a 5 year old who is crying right now because of a “bad walrus” that she is scared is going to come and get her. She has never been sacred by a movie before. Very upset right now, especially since I wasn’t the one who put the movie on for her.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
