Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

In this mess of a movie, the filmmakers lose sight of logic, good taste, and, above all, empathy. Attempts at humor fall flat: Joe Piscopo is grating, unfunny, and sadistic; the farting is continuous and gross. Making light of children being lured into cars with offers of a ride home and candy are unconscionable, as are scenes of drunks driving cars and running into things. Kids are in danger in scene after scene; innocent animals are threatened, captured, and shot and one is killed by a car. The filmmakers continually rely on jeopardy (real, cartoonish, and false) to keep a young audience involved, but it's way too scary for most kids. For the rest of us, it's a bottom-rung movie, hard to sit through by any standard.

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.
