Is It Any Good?

Disney's The Poof Point is colorful, energetic, and chaotic… but lacks any real urgency until the final scene. Younger children will enjoy the sheer silliness of the parents gradually getting younger -- playing seven-year-olds and toddlers from within their 40-year-old bodies. But elsewhere the acting isn't always convincing, making the pace seem slower than the movie's 89 minutes should allow. Turn-to-camera interludes only serve to make it feel more disjointed and provide another example of the acting not quite hitting the mark.

There are very few levels beyond the immediate physicality of what is happening in any given scene, so older children and adults may struggle to stick with a plot line that deviates very little from the generic and predictable. However, it does serve to make science and math appear fun and encourages understanding between parents and children, making it an easy watch with some educational value that will keep younger viewers amused.

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.
