Animated Comedy/Musical: Yeti who live high above the cloud line of a mountain peak must contend with the possibility of the existence of tiny humans a.k.a. smallfeet.
High atop a snowy mountain peak above a thick cloud line where nothing is believed to exist below that lives a harmonious community of yeti. All follow the rules passed down from their ancestors that are written on stones and kept by their current ruler, the Stonekeeper (voice of COMMON). Among the rule followers is Migo (voice of CHANNING TATUM) who one day hopes to follow in the footsteps of his father, Dorgle (voice of DANNY DeVITO), and become the figure responsible for causing the sun to rise by flying through the air each morning and striking a gong with his head.

But one day while practicing that, he ends up on the side of a mountain where he spots a strange object falling from the sky and headed directly at him. He manages to avoid being struck, but is shocked to see, just briefly, a tiny human pilot who's then swept away and down through the clouds by his parachute. Migo rushes back to the village to tell everyone about his sighting of a so-called "smallfoot."

But the Stonekeeper is quick to dispel such talk, and it's not long before Migo finds himself banished from the village by the ruler and his dimwitted enforcer of a son, Thorp (voice of JIMMY TATRO). But that yeti's sister, Meechee (voice of ZENDAYA), the secret leader of a small group of yeti -- that includes Kolka (voice of GINA RODRIGUEZ), Gwangi (voice of LeBRON JAMES), and Fleem (voice of ELY HENRY -- collectively known as the SES (Smallfoot Evidentiary Society) -- wants to know more.

As does Migo who decides to take the risk of lowering himself down through the clouds to look for the smallfoot he previously saw, but he accidentally ends up falling a long way and lands in a village of such people. Among them is nature documentary TV host Percy (voice of JAMES CORDEN) who's fallen on hard times of recent getting anyone's attention with his work, and even wants his producer, Brenda (voice of YARA SHAHIDI), to dress up in a yeti costume to goose his ratings.

He doesn't have to, however, when he spots Migo and freaks out, especially when the huge yeti captures him to take back to his village to prove his existence. He shows the smallfoot to Meechee and her friends, but from that point on it's uncertain how everyone else will react to this potentially unsettling news and how that might rock everything they've long believed in, including their village rules.

It's a good bet many younger ones will.
For some action, rude humor, and thematic elements.

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!!!
