Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tom and Jerry: Snowman's Land is an animated slapstick tale based on the classic cartoon that frequently (and violently) pits a mouse and cat against each other. In this installment, Jerry and his nephew Tuffy (voiced by Kath Soucie) encounter a magical snowman named Larry (Kevin Michael Richardson) and must keep him from melting. Expect lots of cartoon violence played for laughs. Characters fall from heights, are smashed into walls, and get electrocuted. There are also snowball fights, including a bazooka-style gun that can rapidly fire snowballs. Characters sometimes fill it with marbles or ice-filled snowballs. Injuries don't last long. The movie has mild insults, including "jerk," "sap," and "weirdo." On a positive note, the story emphasizes the importance of teamwork and perseverance.

Is It Any Good?
It's refreshing to see that Tom and Jerry: Snowman's Land focuses a little less on the longtime feud and more on saving a new snowman friend. Though the cat and mouse aren't at each other's throats for the entirety of the movie, there's still plenty of the silly slapstick violence and humor that those familiar with the franchise will expect. There are also a few catchy songs that keep things moving along, offering a break from the constant crashing and bashing. Though those physical shenanigans can be entertaining for many viewers, some younger kids, particularly those unfamiliar with the franchise and style of comedy, might feel a little unsettled by the animals repeatedly hurting each other.
Tom and Jerry take more of a backseat midway through this wintertime story as the focus shifts to Larry, a charismatic snowman, and his relationship with Tuffy. Their friendship is endearing and at times comedic as Larry was "just born" and is naive in many ways. Younger children might relate to Larry since at times he seems childlike. The story is nothing new, but it's cute enough, and it's less violent than some previous Tom and Jerry films.
