Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Despite a mostly satirical tone, Schulz includes one moment of real integrity in the plot, and that is the one that lingers in the viewer's mind. As is true with most of Schulz's work, the DVD works on two levels: One is pure humor; even kids who don't care about the intricacies of polling and voting will be entertained by Snoopy in his "Joe Cool" persona or by Schroeder (Brian Kazanjian) turning a nominating speech into an ode to his hero Beethoven. But for older kids, You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown represents a chance to talk about whether there is any honesty left in the political process.
