A great movie to show kids (a great message)

As you can see in the title, this movie has a wonderful message. There is violence but that’s the only reason I made the rating 12, otherwise so would have put lower. There is no sexual-ness except for a kids and that’s it.

A sweet, feel good movie

There is nothing in this movie that is offensive. There is no blood as such and there is no violence (apart from a couple of scenes in the beginning but it is quite light hearted). It is a little creepy at times but I am easily scared and it was no more than a couple of jumps. Overall, this is a very sweet, romantic and positive film. Kids over 12 are certainly okay to watch it (even perhaps younger if they are not bothered by zombies and the like). There is no swearing or foul language, nothing inappropriate and no sex scenes.
