This is not a good movie

The cons very much outweigh the "educational value". There are a lot of scary scenes...basically the polar bear is held at gunpoint for most of the movie. There's the aftermath of a plane crash and then another near helicopter crash (more than once I believe). There is a lot of slapstick type action and name calling which leads to laughing at others' misfortunes. I admittedly left for a bit, but I did watch 75% of this movie and advise against for anyone teaching your child to be a good human.

This title has:

Too much violence
