A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Judeo-Christian message that if you trust in and obey God, you will not fail. On a secular level, Moe overcomes his fears, collaborates with his brother, and helps free his people.
Violence & Scariness
While not violent, there are a couple of slightly disturbing images of babies in baskets floating down the river and then the mayor looking sadly at an empty crib.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that like all Big Idea productions, this story is mainly aimed at Christian families. Moses is transformed into a cowboy cucumber named Moe, whose people are terrorized by a tyrannous mayor. Most of the plagues are depicted as much-less ominous events, like a river turning red, people growing pimples, and firstborn sons being "taken" by a river. While certain images, especially of the Passover plague, might be upsetting to inquisitive children, there's nothing explicitly frightening or disturbing.

Is It Any Good?
Richly animated and creatively conceived, MOE AND THE BIG EXIT is a humorous, kid-focused twist on an epic Exodus saga. While the biblical plot may be too complicated for some preschoolers -- and too religious for secular families -- even the youngest viewers will find reasons to dig this VeggieTale. There's even a new Silly Song, "A Mess Down in Egypt," which is a rap sung by the "Boyz in the Sink."
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.
