Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This film is best for baseball lovers, especially Yankee fans, who don't mind a little bit of seriousness with their hero worship. Traditional animation, with cleanly drawn images and inventive characterizations, works with an array of celebrity voice talents to bring this movie to life. Richard Gere and Cyndi Lauper bring just the right notes to their roles as little Jack's cheerleaders. Henry & Me is a short film that relentlessly hypes the New York Yankees but will ultimately inspire and have meaning for older kids (not only sports fans), especially when they can watch with grown-ups who have their own memories of these legends to draw upon.

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.
