Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This amiable film with lots of music is enjoyable, sincere in its effort to entertain, and has some original, clever characters. (Particularly endearing are a raspy-voiced monitor lizard and an OCD housekeeping pig -- not to mention an elephant seal who sounds a lot like Louis Armstrong when he sings.) It will appeal to most little kids and probably some early elementary school-age kids as well. Though there are some suspenseful moments and some close calls for the critters, no one comes to harm, and kids who clearly understand the difference between real and cartoon action should have no problem.

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.
