Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that though this film is basically kid-friendly and introduces kids to the idea of environmentalism with a light, engaging touch, there are parts that may be disturbing, especially for kids six and under. For example, a male polar bear nearly captures (and eats) one of the cuddly baby bears with which viewers may identify. In another scene, while trying to save Seela the walrus from a predator, her sweet "aunt" dies and her carcass is eaten in full view.

Sexual Content

Animals perpetuate their species, but not in close-ups.

Violence

Surprisingly disturbing moments when a male polar bear stalks, and catches, his prey. Some close-ups of animals feasting on bloody carcasses.

Language

Clean. Fun and un-stuffy for a documentary, as in "That's how they roll."

Social Behavior

It's a Darwinian world, where the strong prey on the weak and the weak sometimes don't survive. The animals, not surprisingly, act like animals. The subtext is that humans have disturbed their habitat, though the viewer doesn't see any people actually engaged in destructive behavior.

Consumerism
