QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Comedy: A down on his luck kid who always keeps trying to succeed but inevitably ends up failing hopes he can impress the new girl at school who's moved in across the street from him.
PLOT:
In an ordinary suburban neighborhood, Charlie Brown (voice of NOAH SCHNAPP) is an ordinary kid who's always determined to succeed -- at being a baseball pitcher or even just flying a kite -- but always ends up failing for one reason or another. His younger sister, Sally (voice of MARIEL SHEETS), still looks up to him, and he has a good set of friends, including Linus (voice of ALEXANDER GARFIN), ever the voice of reason. But Linus' sister, Lucy (voice of HADLEY BELLE MILLER), is sometimes a thorn in Charlie Brown's side. That is, when she's not dispensing psychiatric help for a nickel or making eyes at Schroeder (voice of NOAH JOHNSTON) who's usually playing Beethoven on his tiny piano.

Tomboy Peppermint Patty (voice of VENUS SCHULTHEIS), who's nearly always accompanied by her friend Marcie (voice of REBECCA BLOOM), also likes "Chuck," but he's set his eyes on The Little Red-Haired Girl (voice of FRANCESCA CAPALDI) who's just enrolled at their school and moved in across the street from him. His shyness, however, stops him from talking to her, much to the chagrin of his mischievous pet dog, Snoopy (sounds by BILL MELENDEZ), who does what he can to fix that problem, all while accompanied by his small bird friend, Woodstock (sounds by BILL MELENDEZ).

That is, when Snoopy's not involved in daydreaming about the alluring poodle, Fifi (sounds by KRISTIN CHENOWETH), and imagining having to rescue her via aerial dogfights with the WWI German flying ace, the Red Baron. As all of that occurs and the year progresses from winter through spring and into early summer, Charlie Brown tries to muster up the courage to talk to the new girl.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet younger kids will be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: G
For not containing material to warrant a higher rating.

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!!!
