Wonderful Movie! Original, moving and hilarious
What a great movie! Great for the whole family 12+ years old. I laughed a lot and it was also very moving with a great ending!
Nothing is extreme. It’s real life, most kids have heard cussing and will continue to for the rest of their lives. It was not hateful or excessive in this movie. If swearing is not a part of your household/family culture, this movie is nothing to worry about, it won’t harm your child. But it may provide you a teachable moment maybe.
The good lessons about character, not giving up on someone, processing life’s challenges, honesty and of family taking care of each other definitely outweigh any objections about this movie.
And I never complain if a well acted, original, quality movie with great messages, role models and humor incites questions or causes a discussion with my child or any family member! (i.e. the foster mom randomly dropping dead or what a “pedo” is) It’s a great safe place to have a conversation, express your families values on topics and model how to have a respectful, common sense discussion. Better that my children have these conversations with me instead of a peer who may not have the same values or even the correct information.
Btw – I could have done without the animal violence. But it was a short scene.
