Parents Beware

Parent should be aware that there is one scene where a man is shown leaning over to cool his face after being burnt and while doing so his pants falls down. His buttocks is fully exposed as he is shown wearing what appears to be a thong.

The rating says there's no bad language. Unless you count the 10 or 15 times they call each other "stupid," which we don't like our kids to hear. Be aware!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (18):
Kids say (2):

This is a sweet and amusing animated feature that will entertain young kids without many scary parts. Both the dangers and jokes are mild. A head goose instructs the flock: "If you should get hit by lightning, the correct procedure is to fall out of the sky while gently smoking." Even when the heroes are running from a ravenous cat, escaping in a truck full of pigs, the worst that happens is that the birds have to endure a constant barrage of foul-smelling air emitting from the gassy pigs. Jim Gaffigan voices Peng well, and Carl Reiner makes Larry, the wisdom-spouting turtle, a perfect truth-telling adviser.

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.
