Why is no one mentioning the stripper?!

On our DVD copy there is a scene on an airplane when a pole drops from the ceiling and the female character begins to dance on it whilst the song “Sex Bomb” by Tom Jones plays. My children (all under 10) had to be redirected several times from singing the words “sex bomb” not knowing what it meant or what pole dancing is. Why isn’t this talked about?

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (5 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Wonderfully bizarre characters, imaginative animation, and lots of laughs both for kids and grown-ups make this Russian film (well translated into English) a delight. The extensive cartoon action -- more funny than scary -- is as inventive as it is thrilling. And, like GoGoRiki, the TV series from which it originated, Kikoriki: Legend of the Golden Dragon peppers the fun with some relatable social messages about self-confidence, self-reliance, and teamwork. It's highly recommended, but only for kids who are comfortable with pretend violence.
