Positive Content – 10.0

Family values are stressed a lot this film. Being there for each other during times of crisis even there was no blood relation between them; family can be much more than just your brothers and sisters, mom and dad.
The themes of mercy, forgiveness, and sacrifice are used heavily throughout the movie.

There is a part where Baymax is on low battery and I think the look they were going for was drunk.

Profane language – 10.0

A couple uses of “gosh” and “oh my goodness”


Disney has done it again! Although I am not surprised, coming out the same group that created the international phenomenon Frozen the year before, this movie delivers on all fronts. Action, suspense, heart wrenching scenes of love and sacrifice, this movie has it all. I am guessing that this movie will affect boys the same way Frozen did to girls. My son came out of the movie wanting to be an inventor when he grows up and yes, the Christmas list did grow by a couple items as well. And isn’t it just a coincidence that this movie released just seven weeks away from Christmas… Anyways, I absolutely loved the movie, it had parts were I was laughing out loud and action sequences that had both me and my six year old son pumping our fist in excitement. As if the movie itself was not enough, the short that preceded the move was one of the best I have seen! Looking for a great movie to see this holiday season? This is it! Get the kids together, get your friends, or even go solo, this is a movie everyone needs to see!
