A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Meant to entertain, rather than educate.
Characters learn that life isn't about fame and social media likes. The film touches on the importance of friendship and helping others as well as discovering individual talents. There's also a message about learning and appreciating where your family history comes from. Strong themes of generosity and individuality and even song to accompany the themes.
Positive Role Models
The ten talented sisters have talents ranging from science to comedy to music, fashion design, and more. Clyde inspires the family expedition to Scotland after telling a story of his long line of baker ancestors from France.
Some diversity amongst the movie cast. Lincoln's best friend, Clyde, is a talented Black baker. In Scotland the town is filled with a diverse group of townspeople, though none play a prominent role.

Is It Any Good?
This fun musical adventure pulls a little at the heartstrings. Lincoln Loud is a relatable character who wants to be appreciated. With a very busy, very loud and talented family, he's the one who keeps the ship running. But he's brushed aside and stuck in the shadow of his ten Loud sisters, who are the talk of the town. Instead of taking out his frustrations on his sisters, he looks for ways to find his own talents. With some encouragement from his best friend (who is a talented baker), Lincoln decides to convince his family to take an international vacation to learn more about their family. Along the way Lincoln is tricked into trouble. But when chaos ensues, his family has his back to pick up the pieces and help rebuild.
Though the animation style may not be everyone's cup of tea, the comedy, catchy music, and positive messages make it a film families can share together.
