I should have checked here first

Mediocre movie. Subtle anti-christian theme throughout.
age 4+

Hilarious for anyone

Funny older jokes "Hypothetically. Do you know what that means?" "No but I can imagine a situation In Which I do" There is another joke that makes funny of turkeys In The present being stupid by a turkey in the past saying something would make them dumb The film is fun and entertaining for everyone
