Funny for parents not appropriate for kids

Great for parents that grew up in the 90's. I wouldn't recommend it for kids under the age of 13 because it's dark. Although dealing with cartoons it somehow is also dealing with drugs kidnapping/human trafficking the ugly side of child actors among other things. There is also a background joke with he-man and skelator that probably goes over kids heads but is inappropriate. Again for adults, I really liked it and thought it was creative, entertaining and funny, definitely shouldn't be marketed to children.

Ok for teenagers, not small kids

Creepy is the best way to describe this movie. As a parent and someone who's watched Rescue Rangers I'd have enjoyed watching it alone, but it's not for kids. The plot of the movie is way too complicated for small kids, and the dark undertones go over their heads thank goodness.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (20):
Kids say (35):

This film exploits a clever concept of combining animation and cartoon styles across a range of characters and eras in a detective tale starring humans and CG characters. The inclusion of dozens of past and present Disney characters, properties, and storylines on display in Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers can feel like an advertisement, one giant billboard or trailer. But there's visually a lot on offer here as well as some fun meta-commentary about what we're seeing, like characters and places representative of styles from specific moments in history. This film is for fans of the characters, of Disney, and of the evolving technologies fueling the animation industry, who can all feel like they're in on a big inside joke.
