Reel Review: 5 of 5 Reels

There's fear and uncertainty in our world, but at the theater, all is well with the
Peanuts gang. Directed by Steve Martino, this new CGI-animated movie is just
what the doctor ordered -- and "the doctor is in!" It features everything we love
about the Charles M. Schulz franchise: Charlie Brown building courage to talk with
the Little Red-Haired Girl; Lucy's psychiatric advice booth (still just five cents!),
those classic Peanuts dance moves, Vince Guaraldi's jazzy music, Snoopy's vivid
fantasy life, Pigpen's dust cloud, and Linus' wise advice. This movie is a little softer
than the older Peanuts (in terms of people picking on Charlie Brown), and it all
adds up to a sweet, gentle and nostalgic story for everyone (with not a computer
or cellphone in sight).

PARENT INFO: Positive messages about trying hard, embracing your unique self,
and treasuring friendships are featured. A few childhood crushes and some gentle
peril with Snoopy's WWI flying ace scenes. Ok for ages 4 and up.
