QUICK TAKE:
Adventure: A teenager who's spent her life on expeditions with her explorer parents is sent to live with her extended family in Los Angeles, but is thrust back into the jungle with her new city friends searching for treasure.
PLOT:
Dora (ISABELA MONER) is a teenage girl who has spent her whole life on expeditions with her explorer parents, (MICHAEL PENA, EVA LONGORIA) and best monkey friend, Boots (voice of DANNY TREJO). But when mom and dad are about to undertake a particularly dangerous mission, they send Dora to live with her extended family in Los Angeles and go to school with other kids for the first time.

While Dora is delighted to reunite with her cousin, Diego (JEFF WAHLBERG), who she used to share her South American jungle adventures with as a child, she immediately feels the effects of culture clash in the States. No one likes to sing and make up songs in her high school or think positively or learn about ancient cultures. On her first day, she draws the wrath of honor roll student Sammy (MADELEINE MADDEN) and the schoolboy crush of nerdy classmate Randy (NICHOLAS COOMBE).

On a field trip to a local history museum, a group of mercenaries led by Powell (TEMUERA MORRISON), and a sneaky orange fox named Swiper (voice of BENICIO DEL TORO) kidnap Dora, Diego, Sammy, and Randy to force Dora into helping them find a fabled lost city of gold that her parents have been looking for. They are rescued by Alejandro (EUGENIO DERBEZ), a colleague of Dora's mom and dad who may not be what he seems.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Kids, tweens, and teens who are either fans of the "Dora the Explorer" cartoon or who grew up with it will be attracted to the film's concept, young cast, and PG action.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some action and impolite 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!!!
