I did like the Hotel Transylvania movies but this one is not as good as the rest of the movies

Is It Any Good?

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

This Peanuts entry tackles a serious problem such as bullying in a simple way so that even the youngest kids can recognize and consider bullying behavior. When Rerun finds himself the victim of an arrogant and greedy kid named Joe Agate (introduced in the 1995 Charles Schulz comic strips), Charlie Brown is able to become his best self as he tries to rectify the situation. He's a Bully, Charlie Brown is a solid introduction to mean kid behavior, one that doesn't trigger alarms or fears but quietly and constructively shows the effects and allows kids to deal with it themselves. The other two episodes on this release are like most Peanuts stories: warm, relatable, and funny.

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.
