Here's proof that you can't just take a couple famous cartoon characters, throw in a magic ring, and lots and lots of chases and expect a movie to come out of it. There's very little magic here at all and very little story that makes sense or fits together.

Young kids may not care and parents might enjoy a few classic cartoon character cameos (hi, Droopy!) but there's much better stuff out there to be sure. If you're dying for a Tom and Jerry fix go with Shiver Me Whiskers instead. Much more creative -- and with pirates!

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.
