Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this DVD is a funny, enjoyable family movie with good messages about overcoming failure and following your own instincts. Animal conservation gets center stage. Talking animals edge towards mild crudeness for laughs. The teenaged daughter of the president sneaks out to an unsupervised party where drinking takes place.

- Subtle flirtation between two characters.
- Animals pelt a human character with food and bird poop.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- Two strong themes play out in movie: trying harder when you've failed, and finding your own way of doing things. Given the title, the efforts made to save endangered animals and understand domestic ones should be no surprise. Occasional crude humor from talking animals.
