QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Comedy/Musical: A number of unwanted, imperfect dolls set out for the real world where one hopes to become the perfect toy for a human child.
PLOT:
In the small remote village of Uglyville, the various dolls who live there -- including Mayor Ox (voice of BLAKE SHELTON) -- embrace their imperfections and even the word "ugly" as something positive and special and welcome new similar toys that fall from the sky to join them.

Yet, one such toy, Moxy (voice of KELLY CLARKSON), yearns for the real world and having a human child view her as their perfect toy. Accordingly, she manages to convince her friends that include Ugly Dog (voice of PITBULL), Wage (voice of WANDA SYKES), Babo (voice of GABRIEL IGLESIAS) and Lucky Bat (voice of WANG LEEHOM) to join her in climbing up a steep cliff to get to the chute from where they all originally came.

After accomplishing that, they find themselves at the Institute of Perfection, a school of sorts run by Lou (voice of NICK JONAS) where toys are groomed to be the best of the best, including having to pass the simulated world Gauntlet Challenge. Lou is initially taken aback by the sight of the imperfect dolls, as is his trio of mean girls, Kitty (voice of CHARLI XCX), Tuesday (voice of BEBE REXHA), Lydia (voice of LIZZO).

Unlike another doll there, Mandy (voice of JANELLE MONAE), who tries to hide her imperfection of needing glasses while befriending Moxy and her friends, Lou, and his sycophants set out to mock and ridicule the outsiders before sending them off to be recycled. Undeterred, Moxy and her friends prepare for the Gauntlet Challenge.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet many younger ones will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For thematic elements and brief 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!!!
