Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (8 ):

This animated tale is pleasant for the kids and not too painful for their parents. The voice of Bruce Willis adds enormous charm and energy to the story, and as soon as he is on board, we know that any day-saving that needs to be done will be in good hands.

The story shows the different ways people react when things go badly. At first, the adults blame one another, but then they select a leader and begin to cooperate, which prompts a question about how we choose our heroes. In another worthwhile plotline, Debbie Thornberry lets her parents know that she wants to spend more time with them.

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.
