Parents need to know that this 3-D adventure is sure to attract kids who can't resist talking animals, high-stakes action, and a hefty dose of silly gags and potty humor (especially a constantly farting guinea pig). Expect lots of action and some peril; the villain turns home appliances into killer robots, and there's a disturbing/sad reference to a character who might have been killed by a garbage truck (but it's not confirmed). Language includes mild insults like "stupid" and "dumb" and comments about how "hot" the female guinea pig is.
Families can talk about the movie's potty humor. Is it funny or too crude? Why do so many movies for kids amp up that kind of joke?
Also, the movie's violence stems from a character's desire for vengeance. What lesson does he learn in the end?
