Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

Even the villains are funny in this nostalgic look at an America long gone. It's an early Disney release with enchanting kids, caring adults, lovable animals as well con artists, meanies, and trouble-makers.

Old-fashioned, heartwarming performances (particularly by the winning Mr. Stubbs -- an adorable chimpanzee), inventive situations, and some extraordinary bareback-riding sequences should be entertaining for everyone.

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.
