Animated Adventure: A Chinese teenager and her two friends try to help a magical Yeti get home to Mount Everest.
Chinese teenager Yi (voice of CHLOE BENNET) is still grieving the recent death of her father. To cope, she has thrown herself into a series of odd jobs to make enough money so she can go on the cross-country China trip she and her dad always dreamed of. Her plans get sidetracked when she discovers a magical Yeti (voice of JOSEPH IZZO) hiding on the roof of her apartment building. It soon becomes clear that the creature is on the run from a wealthy industrialist named Mr. Burnish (voice of EDDIE IZZARD) and his duplicitous scientist-assistant, Dr. Zara (voice of SARAH PAULSON), who want to recapture the beast and exploit him.

Yi ascertains that the Yeti only wants to get home to his family on Mount Everest, and so she takes it upon herself to make sure he does. She affectionately nicknames him "Everest" and is joined on her trek by her awkward, but well-meaning neighbor and classmate, Peng (voice of ALBERT TSAI), and his cousin Jin (voice of TENZING NORGAY TRAINOR), the best-looking and most popular boy in school.

Yi lies to her mother (voice of MICHELLE WONG) and grandmother Nai Nai (TSAI CHIN) that she has gone to visit a college with Jin in Beijing. But soon she, Everest, and their companions learn that Burnish and especially Dr. Zara will stop at nothing to get Everest back in their possession.

Young kids and tweens will likely have great interest.
For action and some mild rude humor.

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!!!
