Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Sophia Grace & Rosie's Royal Adventure is a direct-to-DVD musical movie starring two young English cousins -- Sophia Grace Brownlee and Rosie McClelland -- who found fame on YouTube with their song-and-dance cover of a Nicki Minaj rap song. They then became a beloved part of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, assigned to their own segment entitled "Tea Time with Sophia Grace & Rosie." They sing; they dance; they're precocious. This, their first movie, keeps them in character as princess-obsessed little girls acting as correspondents for Ellen's show. It's a fairy tale adventure, set in "Switzelvania," with lots of cartoon action: pratfalls, the girls maneuvering across a ledge, chases, brawls, spills, and clownish thrills. Nothing is ever truly dangerous or scary. The villains are mean sisters and a calculating butler. Occasionally, Sophia Grace and Rosie break the rules (sneaking into a castle, pretending they're princesses from another kingdom), but it's all for a good cause, and they never misbehave for very long.
Comic pratfalls frequently upend the villains. Characters -- including the kids -- fall, brawl, make their way across a narrow ledge, chase one another, get thrown into a dungeon (complete with rodents), spill food, experience airplane turbulence, and get involved in lots of clownish predicaments. No injuries; nothing is to be taken seriously.
Two mean sisters consistently demean their younger sibling.
