Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7):
Kids say (1):

Although it's not nearly as memorable as a Disney/Pixar/Big Sky animated production, this dubbed foreign fairy tale mash-up is adventurous enough to entertain younger viewers. Bobo is tiny and babied by his fellow dwarfs, but he's also got a big heart and a willingness to throw himself into the fray to save Rose and the kingdom. It's easy to see younger kids rooting for him to save the day. Audiences will likely be split on German punk singer Nina Hagen's gravelly voiced Dellamorta. The performance (not to mention Hagen's Harvey Fierstein-esque rasp) is over the top but also appropriately evil sounding.

This is far from the kind of animated movie that will be a family-wide favorite for years, but for a 90-minute diversion, it's got enough action, music, and accessible plot to engage young kids -- but perhaps not their parents.

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.
