The character of B.O.B. is hugely charming for all his clueless glee, and his positive energy keeps the short film from turning too dark. His mind-reading ability and general blobbiness are pretty funny too. But the narrative arc is rather predictible, which is fine, but nothing to get too excited about.

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.
