QUICK TAKE:
Computer Animated Dramedy: The first bunny cop in a city filled with various anthropomorphic animal species must contend with a con artist fox while trying to solve a series of missing animal cases.
PLOT:
Judy Hopps (a rabbit voiced by GINNIFER GOODWIN) has long wanted to be the first bunny cop in Zootopia, a metropolis filled with various anthropomorphic animal species who dress and behave like humans. Hired by Mayor Lionheart (a lion voiced by J.K. SIMMONS) and Assistant Mayor Bellwether (a sheep voiced by JENNY SLATE), Judy is dismayed that the only officer who seems happy to see her is dispatcher Benjamin Clawhauser (a cheetah voiced by NATE TORRENCE). Things get worse when Chief Bogo (a water buffalo voiced by IDRIS ELBA) assigns her to meter maid duty, all while the rest of the cops go off to solve crimes, including a rash of missing animal cases.

While performing her parking enforcement duties, Judy comes across Nick Wilde (a fox voiced by JASON BATEMAN) who initially appears to be a caring dad, but in reality is just a streetwise con artist. She ends up needing his help when Chief Bogo -- upset about an unrelated incident Judy was involved in trying to nab Duke Weaselton (a weasel voiced by ALAN TUDYK) -- gives her 48 hours to find Mr. Otterton, the missing husband to Mrs. Otterton (a river otter voiced by OCTAVIA SPENCER), and if she doesn't, she'll be fired.

Nick ends up helping Judy meet a number of interesting characters, including Flash (a sloth voiced by RAYMOND S. PERSI) who works at the DMV, and Yax (a yak voiced by TOMMY CHONG) who runs a naturalist animal camp, although the fox isn't happy about running into a crime boss, Mr. Big (a shrew voiced by MAURICE LaMARCHE), who he wronged in the past.

During their investigation, not only do Judy and Nick come across the missing animals, but they also learn that those carnivores have mysteriously returned to their savage and uncivilized states. As they set their initial antagonistic differences aside, the bunny and fox do what they can to solve the matter before time runs out.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet many will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some thematic elements, rude humor and 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!!!
