Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that American Girl: Lea to the Rescue is an adventure movie based on the 2016 American Girl Doll of the Year. A departure from the previous American Girl films, which have been either historical in nature or gently resolved issue-oriented stories, this film finds heroic 10-year-old Lea Clark far from home trying to rescue her kidnapped older brother from a gang of dangerous animal poachers. The suspenseful tale takes place in Brazil, where Lea must overcome a series of perilous events. Disobeying her mom, Lea is pursued by criminals, confronted by tribesmen, lost in the jungle, and repeatedly put in physical danger (falls, capture, the close presence of exotic wild animals). She shimmies up trees, crosses a river, and proves to be athletic and mostly effective. As in the other movies in the series, there are certainly positive messages (respect for other cultures, surprising friendships, accepting life's continuing changes), but those take a back seat to the movie's overall tone, which is one of mystery, adventure, and danger.

Sexual Content


Lots of action, with the young heroine in frequent peril. Lea has a number of close calls as she struggles through jungle terrain, crosses a treacherous river on a board, teeters on the edge of a railing, steps into a net trap, encounters potentially scary jungle creatures, and is chased, threatened, and captured by villains. A police-vs.-criminals climax shows fighting, guns drawn, and arrests.
