RIBBIT is a near win that, unfortunately, doesn't quite hit the mark. The adventure tale has some lovely messages about friendship and acceptance, and the relationship between Sandy and Ribbit is nicely developed. The side characters also are really fun and often the best part of the movie, even though they all only pass through briefly. But Sandy and Ribbit encounter too many villains and have too many near misses on their journey, and the last 20 minutes or so throw in a whole new side plot and set of characters that feels like an entirely different movie.

Parents will love the positive messages and role models in the film, but they might be concerned by the numerous villains and scary scenes. Animal adventure lovers will no doubt enjoy the fun characters and beautiful graphics, but those easily scared by suspenseful scenes may want to skip this one.

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.
