If you were to imagine a very low-budget pro-recycling Pixar film in Spanish with English subtitles, you'd be close to what's going on with Glup. Not to say that it's bad. It's quirky, imaginative, and strange. But it isn't difficult to imagine this as a Pixar film with all the mish-mash of dumpster-dwelling denizens (toilet, toaster, mattress, and Glup himself) given the all-star voice treatment. Just saying.

And yet, it's difficult to understand why Glup is given the title to this film. It's difficult to understand who or what Glup is. He's supposed to be a detective, but there are no crimes committed. He lives in the dump with other discarded objects, but it's hard to ascertain what he is. A light bulb who wears a raincoat? A leader in the resistance movement against the evil Incinerator? It's confusing; couple this with the subtitles, and Glup will prove difficult to follow for younger viewers, especially younger viewers still learning how to read.

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.
