Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this full-length, animated theatrical movie (based on the Nickelodeon TV series) with its humor, strong messages, suspense, and inspiring facts about nature and animals will appeal to both kids and parents. The filmmakers show great respect for creatures in the wild, different cultures and people, the study of science, and a close-knit family made up of distinctive individuals. Set in Africa, the movie has some suspenseful scenes that may be scary for the very youngest or most sensitive kids. Family members and/or animals are in danger in a number of action sequences: a stampede, confrontations with gun-toting poachers, falls from great heights, rushing waters carrying kids over steep waterfalls, and more. There are no serious consequences, and everything is resolved humanely.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Eliza, the 12-year-old heroine, is in danger on multiple occasions: hanging from a helicopter ladder, caught in a rushing river, captured by menacing villains, falling from the sky onto a moving vehicle, trying to rescue a wounded rhino, and caught in an elephant stampede. Other suspenseful moments include: a writhing snake, a tornado, a vehicle crashing into a tree, and a gang of kids going over a waterfall.


A horse farts. "Bunny poop" is mentioned.

Social Behavior

Stresses that it's important not to break parents' rules; they are in place for good reason. The film also promotes: taking responsibility for one's actions, caring for the environment, and doing the right thing even when it's scary. The film also champions recognizing our own "gifts," or talents; they, too, are in place for good reason.
