(2022) (Winslow Fegley, voice of Shawn Mendes) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: A family discovers a friendly, singing crocodile living in the attic of their new home.
Josh Primm (WINSLOW FEGLEY) and his parents, Katie (CONSTANCE WU) and Joseph (SCOOT McNAIRY), have just moved into a brownstone in New York City. It initially appears their biggest concern is going to be their unpleasant and angry neighbor, Mr. Grumps (BRETT GELMAN), who's immediately looking for any way to find fault with them and force them out. But then they discover a crocodile living in their attic, left there by the former tenant, longtime struggling showman Hector Valenti (JAVIER BARDEM).
But the reptile is anything but dangerous. In fact, he's quite shy and doesn't want to be discovered, but Josh eventually comes across him and soon learns that Lyle (voice of SHAWN MENDES) is a singing crocodile who stands upright and once seemed destined for fame alongside Hector, but ended up crippled by stage fright. As the family comes to accept their newfound resident -- and he helps bring happiness and confidence to their lives -- they must contend with the possibility that Mr. Grumps will learn about Lyle and try to have him removed.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- It's a good bet many younger ones might be interested.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For mild peril and thematic elements.
