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.

Bigfoot's talents would be better used elsewhere

Bigfoot is the missing link between humans and animals. Bigfoot made a child with a human woman. They're call the Bigfoot family. That's the extent of where Bigfoot is relevant to this movie. The rest of this movie is about teaching children how evil corporations are in that they like to blow up bombs under mountains to release an untold amount of oil to the surface with no consideration for the cleanup, fines, loss of product, or PR implications. The Bigfoot family TAKES A STAND and says NO to blowing up mountains and releasing oil all over. They are so brave and the corporation is evil. Lesson learned. Afterwards I sat my kids down to explain that their daddy works for a corporation and part of his job is to kidnap protestors and blow up mountains too. They started crying but I told them if I didn't destroy the environment, they wouldn't have food or video games, so they stopped crying and we all fist bumped. Lesson learned!

Typical plot for kids to hate capitalism

I particularly liked the part where the raccoon alluded to Internet porn. It’s so hilarious to put terrible adult themes into children’s movies.
