Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

There's more than one level of humor in this clever, imaginative offering. Little kids will like the characters, the playful mischief, and kooky inventions. Older kids and grown-ups will appreciate all that, as well as the winning combination of the familiar eccentric inventor and the popular time-loop story. Alex Leung and his collaborators were smart to keep the tale at a sprightly 46 minutes; any longer and it might have become repetitive. Good performances all around; colorful, bright, original animation; and lessons about honesty, listening to grown-ups, and the importance of family likely will inspire repeat viewings of this entertaining movie.

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.
