The Peanut’s Movie by Blue Sky Studios
Type: Cartoon, Children’s
Basic Plot: Charlie Brown is determined to do something to impress the “little red-haired girl” that has just moved to town, but his plans always seem to go horribly wrong.
Plot and Story Organization: 3/5 Average: The story was interesting, but some of the circumstances and the ending were either a bit expected or foreseeable. Some of the ways it happens are not always so predictable, but the eventual outcome is not surprising.
Graphics: 5/5 Excellent Quality: I tend to have an affection for originals and the way I am first introduced to something, but even though this movie’s graphics were very different from the originals, I still really liked them. The graphics were still similar to the original, just much, much fancier. The shading was amazing, as well as the details such as water and clouds.
Moral: 4/5 Good Applications: Charlie Brown wants to change himself and his reputation so that the little red haired girl will like him. Almost everything he tried ends in embarrassment or not as planned and in the end he believes she will never love him. By the end though, she ends up with him not because of any awards or great achievements, but because of his good character and morals. This is definitely a good moral for anybody.
Overall: 4/5 Well Done: The movie was excellent in graphics and moral, though the story may be a little predictable. It was not a tedious or boring movie, and I recommend it to all ages of either gender.
Official Rating: G
Sexual and Inappropriate Content: ½/5 Just Slightly Suggestive: Charlie Brown is shown in his boxers twice. It shows a boy in a bathtub, but nothing is shown from the waist down. A dog kisses a girl.
Violence: 1/5 Mentioned and Light Violence: There are several small accidents such as tripping or things hitting Charlie Brown on the head. A girl does a karate routine for a talent show, though it only shows the aftermath. There are airplane fights and crashes. Someone slips and punches someone else.
Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None
Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 0/5 None
Religious Issues: 0/5 None
Magic: 0/5 None
Others: There is some dancing. There is a pop song with drums playing in the background. One or twice a costume or impersonation a boy dog does may be seen as feminine.
Overall: 1/5 All Ages Appropriate: This movie is recommended for all ages and has nothing very objectionable in it.
