Acceptable movie for sensitive children

My daughter is sensitive to movies or shows with any tense or violent moments. She really enjoyed this movie and only got slightly nervous for the characters in a couple scenes. There is more name calling and stereotyping than I would prefer as a parent, but easily explained to my 4 yr old. The story is nothing exceptional but is a sweet story about friendship and teamwork.

This delightful tale with its wonderfully distinctive characters is one of those rare movies that both kids and grown-ups will enjoy. The animation, humor, and storytelling all are first rate. The very amusing action sequences find the heroes in all sorts of unusual shipboard predicaments -- swooshing down laundry chutes, clutching at portholes, and outwitting a diva who's interfering with their objective. Best of all, these sequences are dependent upon the personalities that have been established, so they are funnier and more inventive than others that rely strictly upon action alone. Terrific voice performances from all, with special kudos to Steve Hudson, who handles a slew of unique vocal roles. Recommended for all kids who clearly know the difference between real and cartoon jeopardy.
