My kids loved this movie, I was the poopy-head that kept muttering “humans will enslave/destroy the yetis, as they have the environment”.

It’s a happy go lucky film about yeti’s in their perfectly ignorant world where peace & prosperity flourish, thinking is suppressed, the elders keep secrets (Moana). Curiosity is dangerous, hence it’s interesting to a few rabble rousers who are considered conspiracy nuts, and banished.

Good for kids, as it shows an ideal situation where bad things happen with knowledge, but everyone turns around and hopes for a better future. Kids should be exposed to idealism, particularly with realist parents like me.

The animation was engaging and the town set up like it was based upon Berk.

The music wasn’t Disney-ballad-awful, but also not at the level of Trolls or Sing.

Overall, a cute movie that my family should have seen without mom the curmudgeon.

The movie was not too bad and had it's funny part. However, I noticed that some of the characters was most likely dreamed up from another movie called Pottersville which was released in 2017. So some of the mockery of Pottersville made in the movie small foot I could recognize and get the humour. However, I did not care for the movie Pottersville.

This movie was a bit underwhelming, the music was okay but I did not like the story as much as I was hoping based on the concept. Overall the story flowed in a choppy way and the ending was very abrupt, it felt like it needed a happy ending in a rush without bothering to build up the story to get there naturally. Additionally I did not find the main human character to be very likable.

My family was enchanted by this movie. Who wouldn't want to experience life in a village of friendly yetis with big personalities? The movie has enjoyable music, beautiful animation, cute characters, laugh-out-loud humor, and an interesting storyline. The film upholds the values of integrity, honesty, curiosity, and friendship. It received a positive review in the Saint Anthony Messenger magazine.

SEXUAL CONTENT
None.

VIOLENT CONTENT
Migo, Percy and a few other characters get thumped around quite a bit in pratfalling, tumbling ways. Migo crashes down a rocky mountainside, for instance. He and his father bash head-first into that aforementioned large gong, as well as a huge stone column. And Percy's small, vulnerable human size is played for laughs on a couple of bruising occasions—once, for example, when the large Migo tries to revive him and accidentally knocks one of his teeth out. In another scene, an unprotected Percy freezes solid in the icy cold, and Migo "helpfully" tries to thaw him by turning Percy on a spit over a roaring fire.

In other scenes, some yeti accidentally smash a human town and detonate a warehouse full of fireworks. Some of the frightened humans take an openly aggressive stance toward the yetis, pointing guns at a group of the furry beasts and firing at them with an armed helicopter. (The Stonekeeper downs the potentially deadly craft by throwing some of his stones at it.)

We see a carved montage on a stone wall that depicts a battle between humans and yeti. Yeti are shown dead on the ground with spears in them. The Stonekeeper tells a story of how humans killed the yeti and drove them away. A plane crashes into a mountainside and then slips over the side of a cliff to be smashed to bits far below. (Its pilot, however, survives.)

CRUDE OR PROFANE LANGUAGE
Four or five exclamations of "oh my gosh" join uses of "stupid," "crap," "sucka'," "blimey" and "holy wowness!"

DRUG AND ALCOHOL CONTENT
Percy offers to buy someone a drink at a local watering hole called the Yak Shak. We see the guy later with a metal mug in his hand.

Both Migo and Percy get hit by tranquilizer darts. In Percy's case, it knocks him out cold. Migo stumbles around with a slightly loopy stagger after being drugged.

OTHER NEGATIVE ELEMENTS
We hear a number of running toilet-humor gags throughout the film. For instance, some yeti members of the Smallfoot Evidentiary Society discover what they consider to be mysterious Smallfoot artifacts—one of which is a roll of toilet paper. They call it the scroll of invisible wisdom. Percy takes that roll off behind a snowbank at one point, and a watchful yeti quips about what happens next (off camera): "It's not wisdom. And it's definitely not invisible."

Several yetis, as well as Percy, tell lies. The movie, however, makes it clear that lying isn't a good or moral choice.

I really enjoyed this one. Plus it is also good to discuss the moral of the story especially with kids.

I thought this was quite good, and I do recommend parents watch it with their children...may be a little beyond understanding for 5 and under. Does have a multifaceted story line, and the characters reminded me of actual people I interacted with over the years in job settings.

I really wanted to see this movie when it was in the theatre but life was really busy at the time. I look forward to when it comes in! :)

I thought this was an adorable movie. I do agree to pay attention to the "PG" rating, though, because there may be some things adults might need to explain to children while watching this movie, but I think it has a few great life lessons.
