QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Dramedy: A young girl stumbles upon a real-world representation of an amusement park she created with her imagination and must save it from a darkness that's spread over it following her mom's illness.
PLOT:
June (voice of BRIANNA DENSKI) is a girl who lives with her Mom (voice of JENNIFER GARNER) and Dad (voice of MATTHEW BRODERICK) who encourage her imagination, creativity, and ability to build things. Her favorite is imagining a sprawling amusement park that she and her Mom have named Wonder Land where a variety of talking animals build wild rides and welcome human guests. But when her Mom ends up gravely ill and must go away for treatment, June loses her desire to continue and puts away all of her Wonder Land drawings, toys and such.

When she's sent off to math camp with her best friend, Banky (voice of OEV MICHAEL URBAS), she realizes she can't leave her dad alone. With Banky creating a distraction for her, she leaves the bus group and heads off through the woods when she comes across a long-abandoned and overgrown roller coaster car. It ends up taking her into a real-life version of Wonder Land, complete with talking animals representing her stuffed toys.

There's Peanut (voice of NORBERT LEO BUTZ), a chimp who comes up with the ideas -- from hearing June or her Mom's voice telling him what to create next -- as well as beaver siblings Gus (voice of KENAN THOMPSON) and Cooper (voice of KEN JEONG) who build everything. Erudite porcupine Steve (voice of JOHN OLIVER) is the safety officer and Boomer (voice of KEN HUDSON CAMPBELL) the bear tests the rides, while Greta (voice of MILA KUNIS) the boar is the boss of them all.

But unlike in June's imagination, things aren't great in the real-world Wonder Land. In fact, they're downright bad what with "zombie" chimp dolls having overrun the place that they're tearing apart bit by bit. That's all happened since an ominous vortex known as The Darkness appeared over the park. From that point on, and realizing she's the cause of that, June does what she can to make things right and save her and the animals' park.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
The computer-animation and talking animals angle might draw in younger kids.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild thematic elements and 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!!!
