QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A young, bullied boy's life takes an unexpected turn when he discovers a caged tiger in the woods near where he lives with his widowed father.
PLOT:

Rob Horton (CHRISTIAN CONVERY) is a shy but artistically gifted boy who lives in the Kentucky Star Motel with his widowed dad, Robert (SAM TRAMMELL), who works as the maintenance man for the motel's eccentric owner, Beauchamp (DENNIS QUAID). Rob is bullied by other kids as is the new girl at school, Sistine Bailey (MADALEN MILLS), mainly because of her unusual name, thus forming an alliance of sorts between the displaced kids. That's further strengthened when Rob shows Sistine what he's discovered in the woods behind the motel -- a caged tiger.

With Sistine wanting to free it, Rob turns to the motel's wise maid, Willie May (QUEEN LATIFAH), for advice. As Rob still has memories of his late mother, Caroline (KATHARINE McPHEE), and Sistine hates being in the Florida town following her parents splitting up, the two kids try to decide what to do about the tiger.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Since it's about kids who find a caged tiger in the woods, that might prove enticing to some.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For thematic elements, language, and brief violence.


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!!!
