QUICK TAKE:
Animated Action: The Guardians of children's hopes and dreams - Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost - must band together to fight the Boogeyman.
PLOT:
For centuries, the Immortal Guardians have safeguarded the world's children, giving them hope and wonder and protecting their innocence and dreams. Kids like Jamie (voice of DAKOTA GOYA) still look for the approval and favor of such heroes as Santa Claus, or North (voice of ALEC BALDWIN); E. Aster Bunnymund (voice of HUGH JACKMAN); the Tooth Fairy, or Tooth (voice of ISLA FISHER); and the Sandman, or Sandy (a mute character).

In the modern day, though, an ancient evil has returned to spread despair over the land. His name is Pitch (voice of JUDE LAW), but parents have long called him the Boogeyman and told their kids that he doesn't really exist. He's just a bad dream. This has diminished his power, especially as the world's kids have become increasingly savvy since Pitch's last heyday in the Dark Ages.

A fifth Guardian, Jack Frost (voice of CHRIS PINE), is summoned to combat Pitch's evil. But he also has a problem with the fact that most of the world's children do not believe in him, which renders him invisible and alone. It also renders him vulnerable to Pitch's manipulations, especially when Jack learns that Pitch may hold the key to him finding out where he came from and who he was before becoming an Immortal.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Absolutely. The film will play especially to children under the age of 10, despite some intense moments.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For thematic elements and some mildly scary action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
