Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Fans of the Bob the Builder TV show will enjoy what's basically an extended episode. Structured in six parts, each one presents a team member who's having a problem, such as thinking he or she doesn't need any help or feeling left out, and they all learn a lesson as they work together to get the job done. Taken all together in one sitting, it can get a bit repetitive and tedious, but preschoolers are unlikely to notice. Still, it makes it easy to pause the movie after each part and encourage some non-TV activities in between viewing sessions.

Kids will enjoy the amusement-park setting and introduction to basic dinosaur facts. Be sure to hang around until the credits are done for a cute, catchy musical number featuring the three diggers.

Did we miss something on diversity?
