Our Review of Peanuts: This movie was cute for young kids and adults. My husband and I have been Peanuts characters since we were kids and enjoyed seeing the comic strip we all loved come to life. It was entertaining with some funny parts with Snoopy, of course. And the little Red Haired girl who has appeared in the stories but never talked, finally talks in the film. This is a great movie to see with a family of young ones.
What’s the story: Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.
What parents may like about this movie: They kept the same sayings and actions in the film that used to be in the comic strips adults used to read in the Sunday paper as a kid.
What kids will like: The silliness between Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the characters.
Bottom Line: The Peanuts gang will never get old. I think this is a good film for younger kids to see under 10. Kids who are older might not enjoy it or get bored as it is geared for younger kids. Adults can relieve their childhood and remember those comic strips produced by Charles Schulz.
Positive themes: Teaches kids how to overcome failure and never give up at what they want to do.
Violence/scare factor: No Violence or anything scary in the film.
Sex/Romance: A few blushes from characters but that’s it.
Bad language: All sweet and innocent language. Nothing bad.
