What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated chimp comedy is straightforward and age-appropriate for the young kids it's targeted at. There's some mild peril on an alien planet (an alien tyrant terrorizes his fearful followers by threatening to permanently freeze them), but other than that, there's nothing that even the youngest viewers can't handle.
- Families can talk about why Ham doesn't take anything seriously at first. Is it difficult to live up to accomplished relatives? Kids: How does teamwork save the day? What else do the chimps learn in this movie? Families can also discuss whether the high standards set by Pixar's Oscar-winning movies have made other animated films less enjoyable. Do you expect more from animated movies now? Why or why not?
