Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Quality animation, comedy designed to amuse kids, and a straightforward story work together to make this short movie engaging and entertaining. Performances are strong all around. Action and suspenseful scenes imply menace more than show it, with the exception of the climactic fire, which may be scary for some but leads to a happy ending. Because the messages and outcomes are based on on principles and beliefs of religious teachings, Young Abraham will appeal most to those families who already share the values expressed.

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.
