Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

In possibly the worst choice of bug breed in the history of cinema to frame a love story, these filmmakers chose the one vermin form no human could ever root for. And it gets worse from there -- the animation is terrible (think an early-generation Sims game) and seems to have originally been crafted for Russian speakers, then redubbed with English. The characters are largely sexist, bullies, or stereotypes, the plot is thin, and the pacing is ambling.

That aside, its main focus on the ups and downs of wooing a woman make it a largely alien subject matter for young kids. Older kids who've had a first crush might be more inclined to sit through this, but even that suggests there's any age group for whom this film could be enjoyable. Tread with caution -- and a can of Raid.

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.
