QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Musical: A singer-musician kinkajou travels from Havana to Miami in hopes of delivering his musician friend's never-heard song to his former singing partner.
PLOT:

Andrés Hernandez (voice of JUAN DE MARCOS) and his singer-musician kinkajou partner, Vivo (voice of LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA), routinely perform on the streets of Havana, and make a living from their musical performances. One day, Andrés receives word that his former singing partner and unrequited love interest, Marta Sandoval (voice of GLORIA ESTEFAN), who moved from Cuba to America and became a huge star, is having her last performance in Miami. And she wants him to join her on stage for one last collaboration.

But Andrés isn't sure, what with being an old man, and Vivo is quite happy staying in Cuba. Accordingly, when Andrés decides to go -- particularly to deliver a song he wrote for her that no one has ever heard -- Vivo tries to dissuade him. But once Vivo comes around, it's too late...forever. After meeting Andrés' niece, Rosa (voice of ZOE SALDANA), and her preteen daughter, Gabi (voice of YNAIRALY SIMO), Vivo secretly decides to return with them to Key West, determined to get his friend's song to Marta at Miami's Mambo Cabana club.

Gabi is quickly on board with Vivo's plan and defies her mom's order that the girl sell cookies with the other members -- Becky (voice of KATIE LOWES), Eva (voice of OLIVIA TRUJILLO), and Sarah (voice of LIDYA JEWETT) -- of the local Sand Dollars cookie club. Trying to elude them, Vivo and Gabi end up on a roundabout journey to Miami where they must contend with a huge python, Lutador (voice of MICHAEL ROOKER), while also helping spoonbill Dancarino (voice of BRIAN TYREE HENRY) find love with fellow spoonbill Valentina (voice of NICOLE BYER). With the clock ticking down to Marta's performance, the unlikely duo does what they can to get Andrés' song to her.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those who enjoy computer-animated films featuring animals that talk - or are fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda (of "Hamilton" fame) - will probably want to see it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some thematic elements and mild 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!!!
