NOTE:
The following is an unedited version of our final review that may contain spelling, grammatical, and/or factual errors. This film was not screened in advance for reviewers.
QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Comedy: An arctic fox enlists the help of his friends to stop a villainous walrus from unleashing ancient gases that will melt the Arctic and turn him into the ruler of the world.
PLOT:
In the small arctic town of Taigaville, the only connection the talking animals who live there have with the outside world is through the mail and package delivery done by Duke (voice of MICHAEL MADSEN) and his fellow "top dog" sled-pullers. And for that, they're considered heroes of sorts, especially to arctic fox Swifty (voice of JEREMY RENNER) who idolizes Duke and one day wants to join their ranks.

Until then, he works alongside PB the polar bear (voice of ALEC BALDWIN) and Lemmy the albatross (voice of JAMES FRANCO) in the sorting room for Magda (voice of ANJELICA HUSTON), the stern Russian caribou who runs the operation. When not longing for that job, Swifty has a thing for red fox Jade (voice of HEIDI KLUM), the engineer there, but can't get up the courage to tell her how he really feels about her.

But he'll do anything for her, including delivering a package far, far away to Otto Von Walrus (voice of JOHN CLEESE), an engineer who's created a huge robotic crab-like contraption in which he rides to get around more easily. Little does Swifty or Jade know that he's using her creations to help build an enormous drill he plans to use to release ancient gas from deep inside Earth, all to melt all of the arctic snow. And with the help of his puffin henchmen, he's getting close to doing just that.

After being abducted by otters Leopold (voice of OMAR SY) and Bertha (voice of HEIDI KLUM), Swifty eventually figures out the plan and gets his friends to join him to help stop Otto before it's too late.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a computer-animated film featuring talking animals, so kids who are drawn to those sorts of movies might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild action and 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!!!
