Action & Stereotypes

This is a fun, action-packed story, but my 2 and 5 year old won't be watching it again at any young age. It is full of racist and sexist and other stereotypes. Americans are either brave or stupid while Russians are evil and the rivalry between them is natural. Lots of heterosexual "sexy stuff," commentary on how to "treat ladies" and "space girls," etc with references to "boyfriend/girlfriend" in flirtatious scenes that made my 5 year old literally look at me and blush. Poor taste jokes. Characters calling each other "dumb". Seductive female characters and authoritative male characters. It was enough to ruin a good story.

Skip it

As an adult, many of the Russian Cold-War era themes will make sense but absolutely not to a child. The animation is cute but the story line lacks, despite the historical content. There are references to bombs, lingerie, and characters trying to show off “for the ladies,” and poor taste jokes like “if it’s a big girl must be from Texas.” Many insults at spewed by characters including stupid and idiot. There are references to being “boyfriend and girlfriend” and a lot of talk about dying, destroying people, blowing things up, and being killed, also there’s wielding of a gun. Overall, not impressed, and not appropriate for young children. Catchy main song though.
